Buoyed by a strong night from Smoak, the offense provided more than Estrada would need for a Toronto Blue Jays. Edwin Encarnacion walked and Blue Jays pitching coach Pete Walker was ejected by home plate umpire Vic Carapazza during his visit to the mound. Seattle OF Guillermo Heredia started in left field after missing the start Thursday because of visa issues entering Canada.

Ryan Goins singled in the winning run with two out in the bottom of the ninth inning as the Toronto Blue Jays defeated the Cleveland Indians 8-7 on Wednesday night.

"The guys in that room understand we have a lot of injuries and it's their chance, and they're kind of feeding off that".

"It's been a wild year so far", Mariners manager Scott Servais said with a rueful smile. We just couldn't get the big one.

"I'm not so concerned so far", Morales said. "We, as his teammates, keep reminding him it's not about what you've done, it's about what you're going to do for us today".

Indians: Francona said OF Michael Brantley (sprained right ankle) might be available to pinch hit Wednesday. "I probably should have kind of pitched around him". "They've got Morales and (Justin) Smoak there, too". Bautista was on with a one-out walk on just four pitches. "When you've got guys going down left and right, it's tough for a bullpen to hold that lead and confidence and stuff".
