Vlad records first RBI, but Jays fall 8-5 against the disgusting Rangers

In the second game of this three-game series in Texas, the Toronto Blue Jays lose to the Texas Rangers *shudders*, 8-5 after an ugly start delivered by Thomas Pannone.
It’s unfortunate to ruin such a monumental night, with Vlad batting in his first major league run, but who else than the Rangers would do such a thing.
The lefty starter for the Jays just created too big of a deficit in just 2.1 innings pitched for the offence to come back and make something of this game.
Worth Mentioning
Vladimir Guerrero Jr. hit his first major league RBI in the opening inning. First of many, Guerrero hit a strong grounder to left field on a 2-0 count — hit with an exit velocity of 90.8 MPH, not his strongest-hit ball but it was good enough to score in Smoak from the second base. Vlad finished the game 1-for-3 with a walk and a strikeout added to that RBI.
