That's John Gibbons quoting Tom Hanks as Jimmy Dugan in A League of Their Own.

Blue Jays: Donaldson, scratched Thursday with a sore left knee, was back at third base and went 1 for 5 with three strikeouts. Now the rest of the lineup is starting to at least contribute. Duffy is on the disabled list with a strained oblique. "I think it'll be good".

"I wish I knew how to get out of this, but we're working on it, trying to find ways to see what can make me feel better", Osuna said.

Friday's game saw the Royals score four runs in the ninth to grab the win.

With a raw major-league debutant.

The Kansas City Royals will look to keep their momentum going after Friday's win gave the Royals their tenth win in their last 12 games. Aaron Loup was charged with the game-deciding runs, taking the loss to fall to 2-1 this season, while Jason Grilli was on the mound for the game-ending hit, recording his 2nd blown save of the year.

With the start, he becomes the fifth Liberty Flame to reach the majors and the first since Doug Brady made his MLB debut with the Chicago White Sox on September 5, 1995.

Trump disputes Russian interference in 2016 election

Obviously, feelings of anxiousness or fear or a serious concern for a pitcher asked to throw heat in the most pressure-packed moments of a ball game, often before loud, sellout crowds.

While Happ was smoking Royals, Toronto stitched together a tidy lead the non-homer way.

Kansas City has averaged more than 7.2 runs per game during its current 9-2 run, but was tagged for 17 total runs in those two defeats, which include an 8-3 loss to the Red Sox as a +175 home underdog on Tuesday night.

That's where it got rather nifty. He got the first two batters of the sixth before Dwight Smith Jr. singled, then got Kevin Pillar to fly out to leave Smith stranded. Tulowitzki then scored on a wild pitch.

His first pitch to Salvador Perez missed the zone down and, when Tepera tried to raise his sights, he threw the next pitch right down the middle. Lorenzo Cain scores. Mike Moustakas pops out to third base to Josh Donaldson.

"We've said all year we have a team that is definitely capable of making a run", Royals designated hitter Brandon Moss said.

But Tepera couldn't quite close it out. Salvador Perez doubles to deep left center field. Joakim Soria had a shaky 9th, but became the pitcher of record, getting the win to improve to 4-2 this season. He singled with one out and scored on Alex Gordon's triple down the right-field line off Marco Estrada (4-6). And, gulp, out of the bullpen came Jason Grilli, who'd only been used in blowouts and low-leverage situations for the past few weeks.
