Jays, Cubs Extend Streaks; Mets Bounce Back To Beat Yankees

Jonathan Grant | July 27th, 2022

The Blue Jays just refuse to slow down at the moment, and on Tuesday they showed that in Toronto by taking down the St. Louis Cardinals 10-3 at Rogers Centre to make it seven victories in a row now. Vladimir Guerrero, Jr. hit a two-run homer in the bottom of the first only for the Cards to come back and tie the game later. In the sixth, however, the Jays made their move, scoring five total runs. George Springer’s grand slam accounted for four of those, helping keep his team rolling.

Nine wins from their last ten also means that they are top of the AL Wild Card standings by two clear games. The Chicago Cubs, meanwhile, also have a big winning streak going currently, and they picked up their sixth consecutive win by beating the Pittsburgh Pirates at Wrigley on Tuesday afternoon. Seiya Suzuki homered and scored twice in a 4-2 win while Willson Contreras got a standing ‘O’ from the fans in what could be his final home game for the team. Even with this winning run, the Cubbies are 40-57, meaning they could be set to be sellers at the trade deadline. Elsewhere, the Mets defeated the Yankees in game 1 of the Subway Series on Tuesday. Having fallen behind 2-0 early thanks to solo shots from Aaron Judge and Anthony Rizzo, it would have seemed to be a potentially long night. However, the Mets responded right away with four runs in the bottom of the first, leading them to an eventual 6-3 victory. Eduardo Escobar’s two-run shot proved to be the big highlight, and the Mets have the edge thus far as a result.
