Blue Jays Take Over First Place in AL East with 10th Straight Win

The Toronto Blue Jays won their 10th straight game tonight by demolishing the Oakland A’s 10-3. 

The Jays scored seven runs in the 2nd inning on three run home runs by Chris Colabello and Justin Smoak. 

With the New York Yankees having just lost their fifth game in a row 2-1 to the last place Cleveland Indians, the Blue Jays are now in first place in the AL East by half a game. 

This is the second time this season Toronto has had a winning streak in double digits. In mid-June, the Jays tied a franchise record with 11 consecutive wins. 

What a difference a fortnight makes. Two weeks ago, the Jays were 50-51 and eight games back of the Yankees. Not only that but they were also behind the Tampa Bay Rays and the Baltimore Orioles. Then they acquired Troy Tulowitzki from the Colorado Rockies. Toronto is 13-1 since the trade. 

The Jays can tie their franchise winning streak tomorrow afternoon against the A’s. They will then host the Yankees for a three game weekend series at the Rogers Centre. It will be the hardest ticket to get in the Big Smoke.

The Blue Jays have not been in the post-season since 1993 when they won the second of back to back World Series titles.
