Blue Jays Struggle Continues in Shutout Loss to Astros

Blue Jays shutout loss

In another tough outing, the Blue Jays’ offense faltered, managing just one hit—a double by Daulton Varsho—against the Astros.

Despite a strong effort from pitcher Chris Bassitt, the Jays fell 8-0 to the Houston Astros, who claimed two wins out of three in the series.

The loss comes after concerns were raised about the Jays’ offense following a no-hit game just two nights prior and a narrow victory on Tuesday.

Facing off against Houston starter Cristian Javier, the Jays struggled to get their bats going and were outmatched by the Astros’ relievers, resulting in a significant hit differential.

Yordan Alvarez, previously struggling at the plate, found his rhythm, hitting his first two homers of the season and contributing to Houston’s offensive dominance.

While Bassitt showcased his pitching prowess, the Jays couldn’t capitalize on defensive plays from Varsho, Cavan Biggio, and Bo Bichette, ultimately falling short.

With a much-needed day off on Thursday, the Jays will regroup before facing the Yankees in a weekend series starting on Friday afternoon.
