May 3, 1985 Game 277: Blue Jays (16-6) at Mariners (8-15)

The best team in baseball takes on one of the worst teams.  Mark Langston would pitch the best game of his young season, but ran out of gas in the 7th.  Jimmy Key also turned in his best outing and he could be the key to the Blue Jays pennant aspirations.

In the 1st Barfield homers off of Langston and the Jays are up 1-0.  Bell would add a homer of his own in the 4th  and gives the Blue Jays a 2-0 lead. That would be all the scoring the Blue Jays would get until the 7th.  Key would continue to hold off the Mariners until he would run into some trouble of his own in the 7th.

In the 7th Garcia triples, scoring Fernandez,  Mulliniks follows with a single scoring Garcia.  Upshaw then blasts a 3 run homer and now it is 7-0 Blue Jays.  With 2-outs in the 7th Presley singles scoring Cowens and now it's a 7-1 game.

In the 8th Whitt hits a 2 run homer and then 2-outs later Mulliniks hits a 2 run shot of his own to give the Jays a 11-1 lead.  In the bottom of the 8th Owen leads off with an E6, Perconte and Bradley both single to load the bases.  Bonnell who is filing in for the injured Davis singles scoring Owen to make it an 11-2 Blue Jays lead.

The Final Score 11-2 Blue Jays
