A 2-run homer for Jose Bautista and a 3-run home run for Kevin Pillar, of all people, won the game for the Toronto Blue Jays Friday night. Kevin Pillar is on that much fire that he punished the LA Dodgers for pitching around Justin Smoak to get to him.
The big show is Saturday’s game with the best pitcher in the Major Leagues, Clayton Kershaw playing in Toronto for the first time. You may have caught a glimpse of him for a quarter at the Raptors game on Thursday night.
The best pitcher in the league (of his generation) vs. R. A. Dickey? We just have to hope that the Jays get lucky and that the Dodgers have never seen a knuckleball.
