Washington Nationals wear Zubaz trousers for Blue Jays first 'home' game

Washington Nationals show Bills love during Blue Jays ‘opener’

In a regular season that has had its share of uncertainty, hurdles and challenges, the Toronto Blue Jays were dealt another curveball Thursday when their weekend series in Philadelphia was postponed after the Phillies reported that two staff members had tested positive for COVID-19.

Romano added a ideal eighth inning with two strikeouts.

Pearson allowed an infield single to Turner in the third and a leadoff double to Eric Thames in the fourth. Santiago Espinal then flew out to center to end the game. But neither pitched, with Martinez instead using Tanner Rainey for the fifth time in six days and Daniel Hudson one day after the veteran closer threw 1 2/3 innings. Stevenson lined out to left field on a good catch by Lourdes Gurriel Jr. before fellow right-hander Jordan Romano replaced Gaviglio and struck out Robles.

After right-hander Anthony Bass pitched a flawless ninth for Toronto, Hudson struck out the side in the bottom of the inning.

By not selecting Pearson's contract until Wednesday, he will not get a full year of service time in 2020 and his free-agent eligibility won't begin until after the 2026 campaign.

It will be NASA's first ocean splashdown in 45 years and the first piloted re-entry of a Crew Dragon capsule. The capsule will splash down in the ocean and a recovery team on boats will scoop up the crew and capsule.

The Jays selected Pearson in the first round (28th overall) of the 2017 draft.

He split past year between class-A Dunedin, double-A New Hampshire and triple-A Buffalo. Toronto leads the season series 2-1.

The Blue Jays' top prospect has a great work ethic and a desire to become one of the game's best pitchers, and Person's impressive showing on Wednesday proved to everyone that he is just starting to scratch the surface. In fact, the Marlins will go at least a week without playing a game due to the outbreak. Blue Jays coach Dante Bichette was also kicked out. Toronto averaged 8.0 hits per game last season and totaled 247 home runs as a team.

The Phillies and Jays were initially scheduled to start play Friday, but that had already been pushed to a doubleheader Saturday.
