Blue Jays put on show in defeat of Encarnacion, Indians

"I think that's the mindset you've got to have", Pillar said.

Goins' homer, his third of the season, came off Trevor Bauer (2-4) and landed in the second deck in the second inning.

The Indians (17-14) scored twice in the eighth inning.

Pillar was sporting a Superman toque as he spoke to reporters after the game. "Over his career, I know April hasn't been the kindest month to him and that's even playing in a dome. He's a pretty humble guy, but it brought the energy back in here, and we got a win". Jose Bautista, who followed up his 0-for-13 performance in Tampa Bay this weekend by going 0-for-3 in Monday's win, is batting.169 with a.550 OPS and just two home runs. I'd be curious to see how Biagini would hold up in the rotation if given a longer look in the rotation, as he's certainly proved his worth in the bullpen with an ERA of 3.13 as a reliever. He's one of the best out there.

Encarnacion went two for three with two singles and a walk in his first game against the Blue Jays with the Indians at Rogers Centre, and as he said following the loss, his new organization gained a measure of respect for Toronto fans.

With Washington still on the power play, Niskanen, all alone in the slot, beat Fleury on a one-timer off a pass from Ovechkin. When media were allowed in, Orpik, an alternate captain, was critical of his teammates. "It was very intense", Hagelin said.

The Toronto Blue Jays have placed catcher Russell Martin on the 10-day disabled list due to a left shoulder injury. GM Lou Lamoriello's task is to acquire reinforcements on the blueline that will make Toronto a more complete team. "But I thought it was a good outing for him, considering the outing he was coming off in NY where he was a little bit stiff and tight and couldn't get loose". And I do believe from my time in the big leagues and from personal experience that that will change and the fortunes will begin to start turning for some guys in here. Another defensive gem came courtesy of Goins in the fifth when he just managed to keep his foot on the bag at second as he reached to catch a high throw from Stroman before firing off to first to finish off the inning-ending double ... After his last start on May 1st where he pitched four innings and allowed seven hits, five walks and seven earned runs, pushing his ERA up to 7.67 on the season, he actually admitted that this start was "a bad one".

With runners at second and third in the top of the eighth inning, Cleveland's Francisco Lindor singled to right field to score Roberto Perez.

They will be facing the Toronto Blue Jays, the team they beat in five games in the ALCS, in the opener of a three-game series on Monday night.

Lindor was awarded second base and crew chief Tom Hallion tossed Gibbons for arguing. "He told me he didn't bump him, he just hindered his progress".

"I know the rule, but I've never seen an umpire call that without some sort of contact being made", Gibbons said. "That and his smug smile".
