Toronto won the first of three home matches against Washington.
Toronto won 6-3 in the 2023 Major League Baseball home game held at the Rogers Center in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on the 29th (Korean time).
Toronto, who suffered a 7-10 loss in the home game against Cleveland the previous day (28th), grabbed Washington and avoided a losing streak.
Starting pitcher Kevin Gaussman earned his 10th win (8 losses) of the season with 7 hits, 7 strikeouts, 2 walks and 3 runs in 5 innings. After Gaussman, the bullpen blocked the remaining 4 innings with no runs.
For the batting lineup, George Springer went 1-for-3 with 1 hit, 1 RBI and 2 walks, Vladimir Guerrero Jr. went 1-for-5 with 1 hit and 2 RBIs, Davis Schneider went 1-for-3 with 1 hit, 1 RBI and 1 walk, and Danny Jansen went 2 at-1 with 1 hit, 1 RBI and 3 walks. He scored 3 points.
The first priority was Washington. Gaussman allowed CJ Abrams to hit the center fielder and steal the base. After catching Lane Thomas with a floating ball in right field, he lost a timely hit to Joey Menesis.안전놀이터
