Blue Jays crushed by Rockies in second straight abysmal series

In one of the season’s most hopeless series, the Blue Jays, now losers of six straight games, fell to the streaking Colorado Rockies in Denver. The entire series was, to put it lightly, marred by errors and dreadful performances.
Outscored 22-9 in a sloppily played series at Coors Field, the Blue Jays were clearly feeling frustrated, as evidenced by some of the players’ comments after Saturday’s tough defeat.
Still, here’s a look at the good, the bad, and the weird from this weekend’s series in Colorado:
The Good
Despite some struggles on the mound, the team’s offence, led valiantly by Justin Smoak (2-for-6, HR, 2 BB) and Vladimir Guerrero Jr. (5-for-12, HR, BB, 2B), was actually palatable throughout the three-game set. Eric Sogard (3-for-8, R, RBI) and Luke Maile (3-for-7, 2 RBI, BB) also came alive in support of the meat of the order.
Marcus Stroman (7.0 IP, 3 ER, 7 H, 2 SO) was solid in his start, with Ken Giles (1.0 IP, 3 SO, H) and Thomas Pannone (1.0 IP, 0 R, 0 H) supporting the starting rotation with a pair of great innings in relief. Starter Aaron Sanchez (6.0 IP, 4 ER, 7 H, 2 SO) was also quietly effectively in his start in Sunday’s finale.
