Richard Griffin: Blue Jays open Cleveland series with a bang

  Richard Griffin: Blue Jays open Cleveland series with a bang It was an unlikely 8-4 win for the Blue Jays in the opener of their weekend series against the Indians at Cleveland’s Progressive Field on Friday night, the kind of comeback victory they did not enjoy all of last April. A sort-of Ohio two-step that set up the Jays’ winning run in the top of the seventh inning. With Steve Pearce on second base and a 1-and-2 count, Cleveland reliever Andrew Miller threw a nasty slider to Teoscar Hernandez that seemed to catch the corner. Miller took two steps toward his dugout, and Hernandez took two steps toward his, but the umpire called it ball two.
