Toronto Blue Jays vs. Seattle Mariners

Toronto Blue Jays vs. Seattle Mariners- 5/12/17 MLB Pick Odds and Prediction USA TODAY Sports

Pillar hit his fifth homer of the season against Edwin Diaz (1-2).

The Jays' centre-fielder, Kevin Pillar, got a read on the hit and pedalled backwards to pull it in. "So I didn't want it to rip completely". He is hitting.314 through 38 games. "His jersey's not even recognizable any more".

"I wanted to keep my jersey on because I told my mom we'd get a picture after the game", Pillar said. "It was a little orange, but those are memories I'll remember for the rest of my life, and we got the photo to commemorate it". Despite missing 12 games, he is also tied for fifth in the league in hits.

A Gold Glove finalist and Fielding Bible Award victor for center-field, Pillar is one of the hottest hitters in baseball this season.

It's easy to focus to Diaz's hanging slider, or the fastball that James Pazos teed up for Justin Smoak's two-run homer in the sixth inning.

Mariners: 2B Robinson Cano (right quadriceps) missed his fourth straight game.

Atlanta opened the scoring in the fifth. But yanking one out of the park is cooler, he said.

Kevin Pillar was doing the sidestep and was about halfway to first base when he finally relinquished the grip on his bat after realizing neither he nor the Toronto Blue Jays would be needing it again on Sunday.

The game marked the return of Aaron Sanchez who pitched five innings, giving up five hits and one unearned run while walking two and striking out four.

It was Pillar's first career walkoff home run and is the first Toronto centre-fielder to hit a walkoff since Vernon Wells in July 2006.

ICJ declines Pakistan's plea to see Jadhav confession
Pakistan completed its presentation in under 50 minutes, while India forcefully argued the matter for the stipulated 90 minutes. Barrister Khawar said that Pakistan still wants peaceful relations with India, but never compromise on the sovereignty.

"We'll probably have to bring somebody up for (Sunday's) game", Seattle manager Scott Servais said. "He's having a tremendous year".

Jarrod Dyson tied the game 2-2 in the seventh with his first home run as a Mariner.

Yes, the Mariners would normally prefer six or more innings from their starting pitcher but, these days, they'll take five zeroes. But Jose Bautista's throw from the outfield was off, earning him an error and allowing Segura to reach third and Ruiz to score for a 1-0 Mariners lead.

Sanchez was out since May 1 with a split nail on the middle finger of his throwing hand. Prior to that abbreviated outing, Sanchez pitched 5 1/3 innings against Baltimore on April 14. Sanchez wasn't thrilled to be asked about the bleeding. It was Smoak's fourth home run against left-handers this year.

Dyson's eighth career homer was his first outside of Kansas City's Kaufman Stadium.

The Jays have now won four in a row for the first time this season and six of their past seven.

A further notable of this encounter - sweeping away the Mariners in the process - was Devon Travis, he of the stolen home plate 24 hours earlier, stroking his eighth and ninth doubles over the last 14 games.

Toronto OF/INF Steve Pearce left the game Sunday in the second inning with tightness in his right calf after sliding into second base on a double. Gibbons said Pearce will undergo an MRI. To make matters only so much worse, backstop Russell Martin was next to find himself amongst those who are banged up as he attempts to come back from nerve damage in his left shoulder. With that in mind, the front office agreed to sign catcher Luke Maile and also recalled both Dominic Leone and Leonel Campos, one of which has since been optioned as a corresponding roster move. Club officials are more optimistic that he'll play Monday against Oakland at Safeco Field...the two corner outfielders, Guillermo Heredia and Gamel, each went 0-for-4...the Mariners were 0-for-6 with runners in scoring position. The over is 4-1 in the Mariners' last five Sunday games, and the under is 4-1-1 in Miranda's last six road starts. Gallardo has finished at least five innings in all seven starts this season, but has yet to complete the seventh. Seager then flew out to centre to wrap up the game for the Jays.

RHP Marcus Stroman allowed eight hits, two walks and two runs and did not factor in the decision Saturday in the 7-2 victory over the Seattle Mariners.
