The Toronto Blue Jays couldn’t smile after the win.
Toronto won a big game against the Colorado Rockies, 13-9, on Sunday at Coors Field in Denver, Colo.
The Jays added a valuable one-game lead in the tight wild-card race. They closed to within 1.5 games of the third-place Texas Rangers.

On any other day, the Toronto clubhouse would be filled with the sound of music after a game.
But this night was different – unusually quiet.
There was a reason. Manager John Schneider announced in his postgame interview that catcher Danny Jansen had been diagnosed with a fractured middle finger on his right hand.
Jansen was diagnosed by a trainer while fielding in the bottom of the sixth inning and was immediately replaced by Alejandro Kirk at the plate in the top of the seventh.
The team’s initial diagnosis was a right hand contusion. However, X-rays revealed a fracture.
“I got hit in the knuckles by a foul ball,” Schneider said. “It’s a pretty unfortunate and strange injury. The initial diagnosis is a fracture. He will be evaluated further tomorrow.”
Toronto will call up Tyler Heinemann. Kirk and Heinemann are expected to split time in net for the foreseeable future.
Ryu Hyun-jin, who has been partnered with Jansen all season, will also have a new catcher for his next start.
After hearing the news of Jansen’s injury, Ryu had a stoic expression on his face.
He said, “The injured players are working hard to recover quickly and play, and I think we need to play our own game and be a little more focused. I think all players prepare like that for every game, but I think we need to play with a little more focus when we have a lot of injuries,” he said.
