Swanson hits tiebreaking HR, Braves beat Blue Jays 9-5

"He's a good hitter and you're not going to get away with mistakes against him", Estrada said of Freeman.

"Well we're down a run, want to get the guy to third base, contact, trying run, you get a big hit, you take the lead", said Gibbons. "Just go top to bottom", said Gibbons on Saturday.

"When I found out we got him, I was ecstatic", Sanchez said. "He doesn't change anything ever". "Couldn't locate it. I wasn't getting it up to letter-high. He does it day in and day out".

The Braves (14-21), who have won three of their past four games, ended the Blue Jays' season-best, five-game winning streak. "They've got a good one, the guys in the middle, and we had a tough time with them really". "We're all starting to play together".

Rookie Jose Osuna hit a two-run homer to break a tie in the 10th inning, and Andrew McCutchen and Josh Bell also homered in Pittsburgh's win over Arizona.

Michael A Taylor hit a two-run homer off the left field foul pole in the eighth inning, and Washington beat Philadelphia to gain a split of a day-night doubleheader.

Travis finished the game 3-for-5 with two RBIs in the loss. And while the Braves have a losing record (18-22), they have a dynamite lineup from the two slot down - Brandon Phillips (.277), Freddie Freeman (.343), Matt Kemp (.348), Nick Markakis (.319) and Tyler Flowers (.347).

Garcia held Toronto hitless until Pillar doubled to begin the fourth.

Freeman made it 5-2 by connecting off Marco Estrada in the fifth, but Pillar replied with his homer in the bottom half. The personable infielder smacked a couple more on Tuesday, but he wasn't feeling particularly good about himself after the Jays lost to the Atlanta Braves 9-5. Darwin Barney followed by lining into an inning-ending double play.

The 26-year-old Ceciliani is now in the midst of his second season north of the border as a member of the Blue Jays. You can't fault the Braves for slowly and cautiously bringing along all these prospects - especially pitchers - but it seems as if Sims has earned at least one call-up to SunTrust.

Smoak gave the Blue Jays a 2-1 lead with his shot off James Pazos in the sixth. He surpassed Aaron Hill's previous mark of 11 set in September 2009.

When the Braves inked veteran and 2016 All-Star Bartolo Colon to a one-year, $12.5 million contract in the first week of the free agent signing period back in November, they certainly expected much better than what they've received from the 43-year-old right-handed wonder.

Martin took batting practice on Monday and Tuesday at Rogers Centre, and feels the nerve irritation that sapped the strength in his left shoulder has turned a corner.

The New York Mets slumped to a fifth straight Major League Baseball loss, while the Atlanta Braves ended the Toronto Blue Jays' winning streak. Ramirez, back out for the seventh, went through the Blue Jays 1-2-3, a welcome sight after his adventurous sixth.

Russell Martin, who is eligible to come of the DL on Thursday, might not be far behind. LHP Francisco Liriano (shoulder) played catch Monday and is expected to try throwing off the mound later this week. Bolsinger allowed two runs in 5 2/3 innings against Cleveland in his first start of the season on May 9. At Buffalo, he is 1-0 with a 2.31 ERA in nine games.

Foltynewicz has pitched only two-thirds of an inning against the Blue Jays in his career, August 2, 2014, in his major league debut when he was with Houston. The Jays totaled seven hits and five walks with Kevin Pillar going deep and scoring twice with Devon Travis scoring and knocking in two while Justin Smoak walked three time and scored twice.

After outfielder/infielder Steve Pearce (right calf) was put on the disabled list Monday, the Blue Jays recalled Campos, who pitched 2 1/3 innings in the 10-6 loss to the Braves.
