Jays shut down by Rays' Jeremy Hellickson - Streak over

Scorecard: Jays at Rays - Game 1 -

Jays hit a wall named Jeremy Hellickson.

In the 2nd inning Esmil Rogers began throwing the ball up in the zone (battery trying to get command of a pitch that wasn't working?). All three pitches left the yard.

2nd time in Tampa Bay franchise history that the team has hit back-to-back, to-back home runs.

And that's all she wrote.

The Jays had a bases loaded chance in the eighth with Bautista up. Bautista hit into a fielders choice which plated the runner from third - the Jays only run. Encarnacion then Flied Out to right to end the inning.

Hellickson had 4 - three-up, three-down innings of the 7 he pitched. In the others, he faced only four Blue Jay hitters.

Jays had 1 hit and 4 walks off Hellickson, spread evenly over his 7 innings. Three of the walks were left on - one was part of a double play. Of the Jays 3 hits over the entire game - one scored, one was left on, and one was part of a double play.

A dominating performance.
