An American team played in Canada on the 4th of July. It was not right. The Royals were out of whack and just couldn't get much offense going.

Highlights:

  • Villanueva stymied the Royals by striking out 7, walking no one and scattering 4 hits over 6 innings.
  • Mendoza was decent. He struck out 9 and walked 1 in his 6 IP. All 3 of the runs he allowed came off of sacrifice flies.
  • Escobar, Moustakas and Francoeur all had 2 hits each. With Francoeur knocking home Moose for the only score.
  • Everyone on the Blue Jays got at least one hit.
  • Hacker of the Game: Moustakas seeing 12 pitches in 4 PAs
