Dodgers Dominate Blue Jays in 12-2 Rout at Rogers Centre

Toronto – In a disappointing matchup at the Rogers Centre, the Toronto Blue Jays were unable to contain the offensive prowess of the Los Angeles Dodgers, falling 12-2 on Friday night.

Despite a lively crowd of 39,688, which included some vocal booing directed at Shohei Ohtani, the Blue Jays struggled to gain momentum throughout the game. Ohtani, however, seemed unfazed by the negativity, responding with a powerful display of hitting, including his seventh home run of the season.

The Dodgers’ offensive onslaught was led by Max Muncy and Will Smith, who both sent balls deep into the stands. Muncy’s three-run homer in the third inning off Blue Jays pitcher Chris Bassitt highlighted a six-run rally, while Smith contributed a solo shot in the fourth inning.

On the mound, Dodgers’ right-hander Gavin Stone delivered a stellar performance, limiting the Blue Jays to just one run and two hits over seven innings, securing his second win in three starts.

Despite efforts to halt the Dodgers’ momentum, including Blue Jays infielder Isiah Kiner-Falefa pitching in the ninth inning, the Blue Jays’ struggles continued, extending their losing streak to four games.

Blue Jays manager John Schneider expressed frustration with the team’s performance, acknowledging the need for adjustments moving forward.

In response to the loss, the Blue Jays are gearing up for their next game against the Dodgers, with left-hander Yusei Kikuchi scheduled to take the mound. Kikuchi will face off against Dodgers’ right-hander Tyler Glasnow, who will look to improve his record against Toronto.

As the Blue Jays regroup for the upcoming game, fans remain hopeful for a turnaround in their team’s performance as they strive to bounce back from this tough loss.


The Blue Jays faced a tough challenge against a formidable Dodgers team, and unfortunately, they fell short in their efforts to secure a victory. Despite the disappointing outcome, there were glimpses of resilience from the Blue Jays, and fans can expect the team to come back stronger in their next matchup. With talented players like Yusei Kikuchi leading the charge, the Blue Jays have the potential to turn things around and put an end to their current losing streak.
