Liriano's placement on the disabled list marks him as the seventh Blue Jays player to go down over the past month and the 10th current player on either the 10-day or 60-day disabled lists.
He's been hearing the same answer a lot lately.
Just not a quality pitch in that situation. They came back to defeat the Cleveland Indians 8-7 on a walk-off single by Ryan Goins, who has done admirably replacing Tulowitzki.
Leone quickly got the ex-Jay to ground out to third to preserve the tie.
Bergman was 5-0 with a 2.17 ERA in five starts with Triple-A Tacoma. "He shut them down".
In talking to catcher Luke Maile before the game, Biagini decided that it could be an effective pitch.
"I've definitely (stolen home) before, but it's not a play you see a ton", said Travis.
"I didn't want to get to the bullpen too quick but it looked like it wasn't going to get better", Indians manager Terry Francona said. The next inning he went out there and you saw some 91s. I was getting ahead of myself and just rushing it.
Aaron Loup got one out, Danny Barnes and Ryan Tepera each worked 1 1/3 innings and Roberto Osuna finished. "Being able to step into the starting rotation, that's not easy, especially when you're not expecting it".
The Mariners (17-19) have lost two in a row. Over seven starts, the 33-year-old hurler is 2-2 with a 6.35 earned run average and a WHIP of 1.906 in 28.1 innings pitched. "Luis said 'yeah, right now.' So I did it". Smoak lined a bases-loaded single over the head of shortstop Segura, who had shifted out behind second base, and Pearce followed with his fourth home run. They have scored seven or more runs in back-to-back games for the first time since August 26-28, when they did it in three straight games.
Yunel Escobar capped a four-run second inning with a three-run home run, propelling Los Angeles to a victory over Oakland.
Travis made it 4-0 with a sacrifice fly off Jean Machi in the sixth.
The second inning was fine, but Liriano issued his second leadoff walk to begin the third, then gave up a pair of singles as Cleveland knotted the score, before walking Edwin Encarnacion, which got Dominic Leone warming up in the bullpen.
Miami manager Don Mattingly and center fielder Christian Yelich were ejected in the first inning for arguing a called third strike with plate umpire Andy Fletcher. He had at least two hits in each of his previous six games.
Biagini has not walked a batter in any of his past 13 outings, covering 21 1/3 innings.
Also Saturday, the Mariners said right-hander Hisashi Iwakuma will miss four to six weeks because of a sore shoulder. Cano left Tuesday's win at Philadelphia after four innings with the same injury. He did return make two relief appearances in the World Series. OF Mitch Haniger (right oblique) will swing off a tee for the first time Saturday.
Toronto Blue Jays third baseman Darwin Barney (18) catches a foul ball off the bat of Cleveland Indians third baseman Jose Ramirez (11) during seventh inning baseball action in Toronto on Wednesday, May 10, 2017.
Jose Bautista hit a two-run homer and Devon Travis drove in the other two runs as Toronto (15-21) won for the fifth time in six games.
Toronto started a four-game series with Seattle Thursday night. He did not allow an earned run over four innings in his first start last Sunday and impressed again Friday against the Mariners.
It's a hard way to live, but that's the reality the Mariners are in.
