Blue Jays place lefty Liriano on 10-day DL with shoulder inflammation

Liriano was pulled in the third inning of Wednesday night's 8-7 win over the Cleveland Indians.

Goins has been filling in for injured shortstop Troy Tulowitzki.

MARINERS KEY TRENDS: The Mariners have won four games in a row and are 4-1 in their last five games following a win. Tomlin is 1-2 with a 9.95 ERA in three home starts.

Jose Bautista bashed a three-run homer and Ezequiel Carrera hit a two-run blast for the Blue Jays.

Predictably, the Jays inability to generate offence without so many of its prominent bats was exposed in another frustrating outing, as they managed just three hits off Indians starter Carlos Carrasco, who was spectacular.

Jason Kipnis and Brandon Guyer each had three RBIs for the Indians.

Carrera started the rally with a one-out single off Cody Allen (0-1), who issued back-to-back walks to Justin Smoak and Steve Pearce. "It could have got worse if I stayed out there so I've got to listen to the doctors and see what's going to happen later". (The win) was big. "Bouncing back and getting back in the game is what we're all about".

"I've definitely played with fire a little bit the last few times out", Allen said. "The walks are killing me, the deep counts are killing me, and tonight it cost us a chance to win a ball game". That guy has swung the bat pretty well this whole series. "The only way to avoid that is to keep him from coming to the plate".

Controversial Turkish President to Visit White House Next Week
USA officials announced Tuesday that Trump signed off on a plan "to equip Kurdish elements of the Syrian Democratic Forces". Trump's decision to arm Kurdish militias in Syria has faced strong opposition from the Turkish president.


The Mariners' problems begin with the fact that their scheduled starting pitcher for series opener Thursday, Hisashi Iwakuma, was put on the disabled list Wednesday due to shoulder inflammation.

Estrada has not allowed a single run in 13 innings pitched at home this season, and he has 15 strikeouts in 13 innings. He struck out four. "If you start saying, 'Oh, we've got to win seven out of 10, ' it gets too confusing". "When you're on the road, you're always a pitch or a hit away from what happened".

Goins ripped the first pitch he saw down the right-field line to allow Carrera to trot home from third base.

Blue Jays: LHP Francisco Liriano (2-2, 4.44) is 2-1 with a 1.59 ERA in three home starts this season. The Jays didn't get a runner to second base until the seventh inning.

Santana was on with a lead-off walk, and Lindor followed with a single to right field on a 1-1 offering. Liriano gave up another RBI single after pitching coach Pete Walker was ejected by umpire Vic Carapazza for arguing a potential third strike, and that was that for Liriano.

The Blue Jays got two back in their third.

Pearce hit a sacrifice fly in the bottom half and Goins chased Salazar with an RBI single. Carrasco went seven complete allowing just three hits and striking out seven. "You always know what they have down in their bullpen". I tip my hat to our guys. Michael Martinez replaced Cleveland centre-fielder Abraham Almonte (right shoulder) in the second inning.

C Yan Gomes (illness) was replaced by Roberto Perez in the bottom of the third. Manager Terry Francona referred to Gomes' problem as "intestinal turmoil.". He left Tuesday's game with a strained left hamstring but it appears he'll avoid a DL stint.
