Bolsinger was lifted with the game tied 3-3 and the Jays went on to win 5-4 to complete a series sweep of Cincinnati. His most recent return from the disabled list came on May 14 in a 3-2 win over the Seattle Mariners, but Sanchez could only manage one more start before another blister forced him out of the lineup.
Reds: RHP Tim Adelman (3-2, 4.95) pitched eight shutout innings against Philadelphia in his previous start, giving up his only hit in the first and retiring 21 of the final 23 batters he faced.
Adam Duvall hit a solo home run for Cincinnati, his third homer in two games and fifth in the past five.
I considered embedding some tweets to show how many fans lost their minds in April, but instead let's just make room for everyone on the bandwagon, old, new, and even the fair-weather.
"I was kind of stunned, oh crap", Gibbons said was his reaction after witnessing Goins's error. "So many guys had big, big nights and Stro was very good again".
T.J. McFarland (3-0) pitched three hitless innings. An infield hit by Bautista was followed by an RBI single by Morales that made it 13-1. Martin answered with a two-run shot in the second, his fourth.

In his third game back after a lengthy stretch on the disabled list, Tulowitzki bombed the fourth grand slam of his career and second as a Jay.
"I was just trying to get a good pitch, trying to get a good swing on it and keep it as simple as I possibly can", Tulowitzki said. He walked a season-worst five. and saw his ERA rise from 6.17 to 7.71.
"He's definitely not a guy that seeks out the strikeout, but he's going to get the strikeout", said backup catcher Luke Maile, who has caught Estrada a handful of times this season. "He was behind a lot". And then, Marcus Stroman will take his 6-2 record to the Rogers Centre mound for Sunday's conclusion against the AL East leaders. Ignoring the starters, there's still some obvious regression opportunities: Iglesias will probably allow runs at some point, and Storen might recapture the form that made Jays fans groan whenever he started to get loose in the bullpen.
Turning the focus back to Votto, who was born in Etobicoke, Ontario and is a 2002 graduate of Richview Collegiate Institute, he will catch a ceremonial first pitch prior to Monday's memorial day affair, from his senior team baseball coach, Steve "Whitey" Breitner, who will also be honoured by the team before the clock reaches game-time. It's the sixth time in eight years Votto has won the award, presented each year to baseball's most deserving Canadian. He threw 48 of his 81 pitches for strikes. Tonight that was the difference, as they hammered the Reds pitching with some tape measure shots, and it was just enough to overcome three home runs given up in turn and some bullpen scuffles. He has 16 doubles and an ML-leading 19 extra-base hits in May.
All six Toronto runs came on homers. He has been on the DL since May 11 due to a shoulder injury.
And yet, just a few weeks ago numerous same fans felt the season was already over, beginning speculation on where and when Josh Donaldson, Marco Estrada and others would be traded, and how long the rebuild may take before the Blue Jays could return to relevancy.
