That was certainly not how any of us expected that series to shake out.
I mean, I think expecting to split a two-game series with the Nationals was reasonable given the fact three-time Cy Young winner Max Scherzer was on the mound, but kicking the piss out of Scherzer and then losing to *checks notes* Erick Fedde certainly wasn’t where I would have put my money.
Anyways! a 1-1 split! The first game was a blast as Vladdy put together a historic three-homer, seven RBI game. After that, George Springer finally got activated from the Injured List and the bats went totally limp. Weird, weird stuff!
We talked on this episode of Blue Jays Nation Radio about a bunch of stuff from this mini-series, including Vlad, Springer, Hyun Jin Ryu going on the IL, Rowdy Tellez going to the Alternate Site, what to expect from the upcoming series with Atlanta, and where some of the organization’s key prospects are headed next week.
