Gamecast: The Blue Jays have used 12 starting pitchers this season. … In his last outing Tuesday, Happ gave up a run on four hits in 5 23 innings vs. the Yankees. He struck out five and matched his career-high with four walks. … Kuhl has never faced the Blue Jays. In four interleague starts, he is 1-0 with a 2.70 ERA. Kuhl was in line to win two of those games, but fell victim to blown saves. … Andrew McCutchen's third-inning double Friday was his 525th extra-base hit, which moved him into seventh place on the franchise list. He also played in his 1,303rd game, which moved him past Al Oliver for 14th on the club's all-time list. … On Saturday, the Blue Jays put Russell Martin on the 10-day DL with a strained left oblique.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper.
