TORONTO – Billy McKinney and Teoscar Hernandez played in their sixth round at home, and Toronto Blue Jays held Texas Rangers on Tuesday with a 3: 0 win.
Randal Grichuk also hit a solo trip to Blue Jays (51-72).
Danny Santana had a pair of doubles for Rangers (59-60), providing only two hits to visitors in the first five rounds of the game.
Starting from Texas, Lance Lynn (14-8) gave up one pass and four hits with three walks and a strike in five rounds. For the first time since April 23, Lynn initially dropped less than six rounds.
Wilmer Font served as a Toronto opener, allowing one hit and two passes through two rounds of work.
Left-handed Thomas Pannone (3-5) followed Font with four hopeless innings – allowing only two hits and two walks while knocking out three – and Tim Mayza, Derek Law and Ken Giles kept their distance to give Toronto their fifth victory in seven games.
Giles, who appeared for the first time since August 7, earned 16th season this season.
Blue Jays made it a 3-0 match on sixth with Hernandez and McKinney single matches against Shawn Kelley from Texas.
It was the eleventh time this season that Toronto hosted the next bats – and the second time back in the night – setting a 1999 franchise record.
Grichuk gave Toronto a 1: 0 lead in the second match with his team's 22nd host of the season, scoring a solo at the center.
The Blue Jays have reached 106 hosts since June 16. They came into play four at the back of the Yankees to get the most rides at home in those two months.
Rookie Bo Bichette went through the third round to expand his base series to 16 games to start his career, the longest in Blue Jay's history. The series-based series is the third-longest MLB player in history at the age of 21 or younger, exceeding 15 series of Ted Williams from the 1939 season.
Rangers central defender Delino DeShields hit the wall hard as he fell backwards, grabbing the deep ball of Reese McGuire with two wings in the fourth substitution. McGuire blinked with the bases loaded, and DeShields' hook saved at least a few gears. DeShields remained in the game.
There was a loud scent in every look of his plate. Toronto fans have loudly expressed their dissatisfaction over second base Texas since it hit former Blue Jays former slugger Jose Bautista in 2016.
