If you thought the latest Blue Jays loss was hard on the eyes, come on down to the ball park on Wednesday where the home team will field a lineup less flashy than it did many days at spring training.
It is also worth noting that the Blue Jays lost right-hander Casey Lawrence via waivers to the Seattle Mariners earlier in the day on Thursday.
Ryan Goins singled home the winning run in the ninth inning and Toronto rallied from a four-run deficit to beat the Cleveland Indians 8-7 to win back-to-back series for the first time this season.
"It kind of came as a blessing that Seattle came in here banged up a little bit with their pitching staff", Blue Jays outfielder Kevin Pillar said. "He shut them down".

Just not a quality pitch in that situation. Leone picked up the win to improve to 1-1. Unbeaten Dallas Keuchel (6-0) became the first six-game victor in the majors, helped by a home run from Carlos Correa.
Gibbons is a big fan of the quirky Biagini, likely even more so after his excellent outing on Friday and the impressive stats as a starter that he has compiled in just two starts. "For a big guy, he's got a short stroke", Gibbons said of the 6-foot-5, 240 pound catcher, who had seven home runs in only 85 at-bats at Buffalo this season.

"He's got four-plus pitches", Travis said. With his great defense, this resurgence at the plate once again makes him a weapon for the Indians. Coghlan was hit in the hand by a pitch in the sixth.
"The bullpen is tough for a lot of reasons but starting is tough for a lot of reasons, so I'm trying to take the positives out of everything", Biagini said.
Leonel Campos allowed a double by Segura and a walk to Gamel to start the ninth and was replaced by Roberto Osuna, who got a double-play grounder from Nelson Cruz and a game-ending flyout from Seager.
