Aaron Sanchez last just one inning after return from DL

Aaron Sanchez last just one inning after return from DL

First from Rays starter Chris Archer, who at the beginning of what would be a brilliant seven-inning-plus performance showed he had his teammates backs' - specifically Steven Souza Jr., who was hit by a pitch Saturday - by throwing a 96 miles per hour fastball behind the back of Blue Jays slugger and noted grump Jose Bautista.

Sanchez was starting in his first game since having minor surgery to remove a part of his fingernail.

The 7-17 Blue Jays have not given their fans much of a chance to make noise this season, but the return of Sanchez should provide some cheer for them.

Reliever Ryan Tepera came on after Sanchez and cruised through 3 1/3 innings - Tampa didn't get a hit until Ryan Miller's leadoff single in the fifth. No pain around the finger. "So, it's back to hopefully the schedule as planned".

"We're certainly going to be cautious with him", Blue Jays pitching coach Pete Walker said.

Gibbons, though, likened the ordeal to last week's debacle between Machado and Red Sox reliever Matt Barnes, who threw a pitch that came dangerously close the the Orioles slugger's head.

The Toronto Blue Jays have a chance to win a series for the first time this season Sunday when they play the Tampa Bay Rays at the Rogers Centre.

John Gibbons would love a repeat of Latos' last outing when he held the Cardinals scoreless over six innings, scattering four walks and three hits. "The ball got away from me a little bit".

Dominic Leone took over with one out in the seventh and allowed one hit and had a strikeout in two-thirds of an inning. Yanks starter Jordan Montgomery gave up three runs on three hits and four BB through five innings before Bryan Mitchell was charged with three runs on four hits and a BB to absorb the loss.

Consider this list of Yankees who have hit 10 or more home runs in the team's first 22 games of the season: Alex Rodriguez (2007), Graig Nettles (1974), Mickey Mantle (1956), Yogi Berra (1956) and Babe Ruth (1921). Tepera had a career-high five strikeouts and left with one out in the fifth to a standing ovation from the crowd of 42,986. He is 2-1 with a 3.94 ERA, 3.53 FIP.

Justin Smoak snapped out of a 1-for-11 slump by drilling a two-run homer among three hits Saturday as the Blue Jays recorded a 4-1 victory to even the series.

Archer leads the majors with 127 starts since June 1, 2013. Manager Bob Melvin told reporters that he only expects Manea to miss one start during his stint on the DL, as the team is planning to utilize right-hander Sonny Gray in his place on Tuesday. He's listed as day-to-day with a left hand contusion.
