Blue Jays Blank Rockies 5-0 Behind Berríos Gem and Turner’s Bat

TORONTO — The Toronto Blue Jays cruised to a 5-0 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Sunday behind a stellar pitching performance from José Berríos and a hot bat from Justin Turner.

Berríos, the Blue Jays’ ace, dominated on the mound, allowing only two hits, both singles, over his seven innings of work. He walked two and struck out seven, extending his scoreless innings streak to an impressive 15 2/3 innings. Berríos lowered his ERA from 1.45 to a minuscule 1.05, showcasing his command and poise on the mound.

Turner, meanwhile, was the offensive star for Toronto, driving in three of the team’s five runs. The veteran infielder went 3 for 4 on the day, including a two-out RBI single in the first inning to open the scoring, a run-scoring double in the third, and another RBI single in the fifth. Turner’s performance continued his dominance against left-handed pitching this season, as he improved his record to 8 for 10 with six RBI against southpaws.

“What a ballplayer,” Berríos remarked about Turner’s performance. “He’s special right now.”

The Blue Jays’ offense also saw contributions from George Springer, who had two hits and scored twice, and Vladimir Guerrero Jr., who added an RBI single.

On the defensive side, Toronto’s bullpen continued to shine, with Génesis Cabrera pitching a perfect eighth inning and Nate Pearson striking out the side in the ninth to seal the victory and hand the Rockies their second shutout defeat of the season.

Despite their offensive outburst in Friday’s 12-4 win, the Rockies struggled to get their bats going against Berríos and the Blue Jays‘ pitching staff, managing just seven hits in Sunday’s series finale.


The Blue Jays’ performance on Sunday showcased their depth and talent, both on the mound and at the plate. Berríos’ dominant outing solidified his status as a key piece of the team’s rotation, while Turner’s clutch hitting provided the offensive spark needed for victory. With the win, the Blue Jays have now secured their second consecutive series win, a positive sign as they look to build momentum early in the season.

Looking ahead, the Blue Jays will face a tough test as they open a three-game series against the New York Yankees, with Chris Bassitt set to take the mound for Toronto. The matchup promises to be an exciting one, as the Blue Jays aim to continue their winning ways against a division rival.
