    Toronto Blue Jays tie Pittsburgh Pirates in spring-training home opener

    DUNEDIN, Fla. — Six Toronto pitchers combined to give up three hits in a seven-inning pre-season game as the Blue Jays tied the Pittsburgh Pirates 2-2 on Monday. Starter Robbie Ray gave up one run on one hit in two innings before Nate Pearson, Francisco Liriano, David Phelps, Ryan Borucki and Jordan Romano of Markham, Ont., each pitched an inning of relief. It marked Toronto's first exhibition game at their spring and early-season home of Dunedin, Fla., after the Blue Jays (1-0-1) beat the New York Yankees 6-4 on Sunday in their pre-season debut in Tampa, Fla. Alejandro Kirk's sacrifice fly and Breyvic Valera's single in the first off Pirates starter Mitch Keller accounted for Toronto's scoring. Pirates outfielder and former Blue Jay Anthony Alford homered off Ray in the second before Phillip Evans' single off Pearson in the third tied it. The Blue Jays also had just three hits on the day. Toronto hosts the Philadelphia Phillies on Tuesday. This report by The Canadian Press was first published March 1, 2021 The Canadian Press

    Blue Jays bring back LHP Travis Bergen from D-backs for cash

    TORONTO — The Toronto Blue Jays reacquired left-hander Travis Bergen from the Arizona Diamondbacks for cash on Sunday. Toronto also placed right-hander Patrick Murphy on the 60-day injured list with a sprained right shoulder. The 27-year-old Bergen began last season with the Blue Jays and made one appearance before getting traded to Arizona on Aug. 31 for pitcher Robbie Ray and cash. Bergen finished 1-0 with a 3.24 ERA and one save in eight relief outings combined. He struck out 11 and walked nine in 8 1/3 innings. Bergen pitched for the San Francisco Giants in 2019, going 2-0 with a 5.49 ERA in 21 games. He was selected by the Blue Jays in the seventh round of the 2015 amateur draft out of Kennesaw State University and plucked by the Giants in the Rule 5 draft at the December 2018 winter meetings. San Francisco returned him to Toronto in August 2019. ___ More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/hub/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports The Associated Press
