With a victory on Sunday and a Yankees loss, the Blue Jays can take over sole possession of first place in the American League East standings.
Mark Buehrle pitched seven innings of shutout ball and Jose Reyes had an RBI single in his first game back from a hamstring strain as Toronto rolled to a 5-0 win over the Indians on Saturday afternoon in Cleveland. Buehrle yielded just four hits and is now 4-0 on the season with a 0.64 ERA in 28 innings.
“The slower you throw the better off you are,” the soft-tossing right-hander told reporters after his outing. “I haven’t changed anything in 10 or 11 years. I’m not going to keep asking questions. I’m going to go out there and run with it and see what happens.”
The Blue Jays (10-8) currently own the best run differential (+6) in the AL East.
