Blue Jays place LHP Liriano on DL because of sore shoulder

Ninth-inning woes doom Cleveland Indians in 8-7 loss to Toronto Blue Jays

Shawn Kelley, who came off the disabled list Friday, started the ninth and gave up a leadoff homer to Aaron Altherr (2-for-3) to make it 3-2.

After scoring 21 runs in their previous two games, the Mariners jumped on Estrada in the opening frame.

"He's always been tough on us", manager John Gibbons said. "He shut them down". Brandon Guyer, who usually gets pinch-hit for when a right-hander is in the game, was allowed to face the righty Dominic Leone and hit three-run double to right for a 7-3 lead.

Even better, in those innings he's allowed just six hits while striking out seven.

It is also worth noting that the seasoned hurler lasted a mere one inning upon returning to action. It's not mechanics, when you look at video and you're, like, what the hell do I do? Blue Jays pitching coach Pete Walker was ejected in the third inning by home plate umpire Vic Carapazza. Salazar walked Bautista and allowed a double to Justin Smoak to put runners on second and third.

The Blue Jays added a run off reliever Jean Machi, but, it was unnecessary insurance with the Mariners unable to take advantage of runners in scoring position.

Bautista answered in the bottom half with a blast just inside the left-field pole. With Kevin Pillar aboard, Bautista belted a 2-1 pitch off the foul screen in left field for his fourth homer of the year.

The Jays are well aware that there's plenty of climbing left to get back in contention, but at least the ascent appears to have started in earnest. Toronto outhit Seattle 10-7.

At this point, it's hard to know exactly how well Smoak will sustain the adjustments he's made so far. "We've got a lot of guys on the DL right now and we've just got to grind away until we get those guys back". "I think, for me, it's the freedom of not having to worry about it". He drove in Jose Bautista, who had led off the inning with a walk, to make it 2-1.

CLEVELAND - Cleveland belted four home runs - two by Jason Kipnis - and Trevor Bauer pitched six strong innings at Progressive Field to halt a three-game losing streak and end Minnesota's four-game winning streak.

"I felt like if I went out there thinking about that I was already defeated", he said.

Biagini (1-1) began the season in the bullpen but has been pressed into starting duties due to injuries. Miranda matched a career high with eight strikeouts...lefty reliever Marc Rzepczynski got two outs in the eighth inning for his 19th consecutive scoreless outing dating to a year ago.

"He's got a great cutter". You've got to keep playing.

Smoak believes a big key is being sprung from the platoon at first becoming mostly an every-day starter.

Said Diaz: "He was ready for that pitch, and he hit it pretty good". He gave up only four hits and had eight strikeouts while walking three.

Aaron Loup replaced Biagini for one batter, inducing a grounder to third from Ben Gamel that forced Segura at second.

That's a perfectly fine way to create your offence, but unfortunately for the Blue Jays, the strikeouts were too plentiful and the home runs were too scarce.

Guillermo Heredia and Taylor Motter started the seventh with singles against Barnes, who struck out Carlos Ruiz and Jarrod Dyson.

Ryan Tepera (3-1) pitched 2 1/3 innings for the win. Announced attendance was 32,865.

Ryan Goins hit a bases-loaded single to give the Blue Jays an 8-7 walkoff victory over the Cleveland Indians on Wednesday night at Rogers Centre.

Mariners: Seattle has yet to name a starter for Saturday.

Toronto is also without third baseman Josh Donaldson (left calf), shortstop Troy Tulowitzki (right hamstring) and catcher Russell Martin (left shoulder).
