ATHLETICS 2 BLUE JAYS 4 F...BUEHRLE doing what he does working fast and efficient as the BLUE BIRDS sweep the Swingin' ELEPHANTS!..."GET AWAY DAY" as 'JAYS might runaway with the EAST! #OAKvsTOR #BlackHoleHardball #JaysNation #WeRideWithTheBlueBirds

Behind a masterful game from Toronto Blue Jays LHP Mark Buehrle and a crooked four put up in the 2nd frame the 'Jays put a three-game sweep on the Oakland A's. Trust me it's nothing that Oakland did wrong as they just ran up against a team that has some October Hardball and Parade Aspirations at the end of the 2K15 MLB Season.

Buehrle (moving to 13-5 in 2015) was dealing all the way up to the 8th as he had the A's scoreless though seven.  It was a Billy Burns three-bagger netting an RBI and a ground out cutting that Jay's lead to 4-2. The Jay's Pen did the rest as Roberto Osuna grabs his 12th save of 2K15.

The damage to the A's had already been done back in the bottom half of the 2nd as as Toronto got on the board on a Kevin Pillar RBI single. Then it was 'Jays shortstop Ryan Goins taking A's starter Jesse Chavez (L, 6-12) deep for a three-run blast making the lead 4-0 'Jays and they never looked back with Buehrle on the "Bump"!  

'Jays move to 64-52 and the Bronx Bombers need to get on their horse and fast before they look up at the end of August and they are down some ten games fighting in the AL Wild Card. The A's falling to 51-65 gets swept three-straight as they were outscored in the three-piece 18-7.
