Reds vs. Blue Jays – Game Summary – May 21, 2022

TORONTO — Bo Pechet scored two home runs, bowler Alec Manoah doubled his career by working eight rounds, and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Cincinnati Reds 3-1 on Saturday.

Bichette’s first home run was a solo run from Hunter Green in fourth, number 50 of Bichette’s career. The explosion, which lasted twice, added Luis Sessa (2-1) in seventh place. Both came on the field in their sixth multiplayer career.

“I didn’t know 50 was such a milestone,” Bechet said. “I am grateful to be able to be here and have the opportunity to hit the house in the major tournaments.”

All six of Bichette’s runs this season have tied the match or given the Blue Jays the lead.

Green allowed one run and four hits in six innings, walked two and hit six on his first run since throwing 7 1/3 bad innings against Pittsburgh last Sunday.

Manoah (5-1) allowed one round and seven strokes to cut a three-start winless streak and earn a W for the first time since April 28 against Boston. He didn’t walk with nothing and hit four.

“It’s special to watch him do his job,” Beshet said of Manoah.

Jordan Romano hit the team in the ninth minute to save the leader 14 on 16 chances, to lead fellow Canadian Joey Foto to second place.

Starting with DH, Votto went 1 for 4 by double in his second game since returning from COVID-19.

“I don’t think it’s exactly where he wants to be, but he’s getting close,” said Reds boss David Bale.

After Tyler Naken retired in a bungled attempt to finish the eighth inning, Manoah held one finger high as he returned to the dugout, seemingly indicating that he wanted another round. Bowling coach Pete Walker spent time chatting with moving Manoah while the Blue Jays hit, explaining coach Charlie Montoyo’s decision to sit down after 83 throws.

“We got close to the best in baseball,” Manoh later said. “It doesn’t matter how many shows I have, it’s coming.”

The Reds opened the scoring on Foto’s fourth-place RBI double, which came after a unique double play that nearly halted Cincinnati’s career before it even started.

Singles TJ Friedl to open the inning and advance to third on double Tyler Naquin. Tommy Pham broke his racket on the first pitch he saw from Manoah, and sent a liner up the mound. Manoah dodged a ragged piece of broken bat and crafted it, then quickly threw to third for Friedl’s double.

After picking up 22 goals without giving up a hit against the Buccaneers, Green retired from the top hitters he faced on Saturday before running twice to Alejandro Kirk in the second. Matt Chapman stuck to finish the inning.

Green retired from the side in four pitches in the third, but his non-hitting streak ended when Bichette continued on the first pitch of the fourth.

Greene finished the outing by fanning Chapman again to leave the bases loaded in the sixth.

“Of all that Hunter has done this year, this might be my favorite moment so far,” Bell said.

Cincinnati’s Tyler Stephenson doubled down to start seventh and moved into third on housekeeper Mike Mustakas, but Manoah cheered Colin Moran before second base captain Santiago Espinal stopped Alejo Lopez’s dive to finish the inning.

Green threw 24 of his 84 pitches at 100 mph or faster. The other 13 were at least 99 mph. His fastest was 101.4 mph which Chapman missed in a second.

First time in Toronto

Green said he was excited to take the hill in Toronto on his first trip to Canada’s largest city.

“I’ve always wanted to play here in this environment, here on this stadium,” he said. “Being able to do well was really nice, and it was special.”

One thing Green wanted when he was north of the border was a picture of himself with the CN Tower in the background. He got his wish when the roof opened before the top of the fourth, allowing the Reds employee to get the shot.
