He can turn around anybodys fastball, so, he hit two home runs and its tough to hit them in this park, youve got to earn them. Anyway, he clutched up late.Travis hit Herreras 97 mph fastball that was high and out of the zone.I dont know how the guy hit that ball, Herrera said. I was shocked.Travis is not sure how he hit it that far either.I kind of blacked out, Travis said. Im going to go look at the tape. I just tried to open my eyes as wide as I can against him.

Closer Roberto Osuna was unavailable after pitching the previous two days and in three of the past four.Right-hander Dillon Gee held the Blue Jays to three runs and four hits over six innings. He gave up a leadoff homer to Travis, then worked his way into and out of a bases-loaded jam in the first.Theyre a great lineup, Gee said. I was just trying to give us a chance to win. I was able to do that. I didnt feel great tonight. It was a battle for sure.The Royals have scored three or fewer runs in nine consecutive games, a club record for offensive futility.Its a broken record, Royals manager Ned Yost said. We just have to find a way to put some runs on the board.Gee walked Josh Donaldson and Edwin Encarnacion in the third and both scored. Michael Saunders double scored Donaldson, and Encarnacion came home on Troy Tulowitzkis groundout, giving the Blue Jays a 3-1 advantage.The Royals tied it in the fifth on Paulo Orlandos leadoff home run and Lorenzo Cains run-producing triple with two outs.PILLAR RESTSKevin Pillar, who has started 105 games in center field for the Blue Jays, was not in the lineup after striking out eight times in his last 25 at-bats.

Youve no doubt heard this all-too-common refrain by now: Major League Baseball games drag on and simply last too long.MLB appeared to make strides on that front last season when some new pace-of-game measures dropped the average time of a nine-inning contest to 2:56, a six-minute improvement from an all-time high of 3:02 in 2014. But in 2016, the average time has crept back to an even three hours.At a recent owners meeting, commissioner Rob Manfred floated the idea of limiting pitching changes and installing pitch clocks as ways to speed up games and make them more appealing to the newest generation of fans.There has been ample criticism of the usual suspects, whether its a conga line of relievers (especially after September call-ups), too many commercials or lengthy replay reviews; those issues do need to be addressed, as their impact on game times is undeniable. But as drasstic moves are pondered, a pleasant trend is bubbling up from within.dddddddddddd.More up-and-coming pitchers work at a pace that would make legendary quick-pitcher Mark Buehrle proud. Among those leading the way is 25-year-old Mets lefty Steven Matz, who burns just 18.7 seconds between pitches, according to FanGraphs, the third-fastest among pitchers with at least 100 innings (entering play Tuesday). Said Matz to The Wall Street Journal earlier this season: Im definitely a rhythm pitcher. I try to stay in that rhythm and work quickly.Young hurlers like Matz, who had his season ended early by an elbow injury, offer a ray of hope that baseball will be able to lower game times without resorting to drastic measures.
