ESPN Stats and Information  

The Blue Jays are 6-16 this season. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, there has been only 1 team in MLB history to make the postseason after falling at least 10 games under .500 at some point before the end of April that year. The 1951 New York Giants started 2–12 before winning the National League pennant capped by Bobby Thomson's "Shot Heard ‘Round the World."

Cardinals sweep doubleheader from Blue Jays

Dexter Fowler, Greg Garcia and Matt Adams each had three hits as the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Toronto Blue Jays, 6-4 on Thursday night to sweep a day-night doubleheader.

That's the way to win a game! Randal Grichuk ties the game with a two-out homer in the ninth and then Matt Carpenter creams a one-out grand slam off J.P. Howell in the 11th to win it. The Blue Jays squander six shutout innings from Mat Latos as the bullpen gives up all eight runs. It's the first walk-off slam for the Cardinals since Aaron Miles in 2008 and first in extra innings since Tommie Herr in 1987 against the Mets.

Meet the cast of the Chris Coghlan slide

The Blue Jays baserunner took one giant leap into baseball lore, but he wasn't the only one to play a part in a truly epic slice of MLB theater.

The Cardinals' continued awful defense and a wild, headfirst dive by Chris Coghlan cost them a 6-5 loss in 11 innings Tuesday night at Busch Stadium. The Cardinals made four errors, the most costly an Aledmys Diaz bad throw in the 11th.

The Cardinals have a way of finding minor-league journeymen who turn into major-league heroes, at least for stretches of a season. Jose Martinez is this year's version. He came off the bench to blast a two-run home run to tie Tuesday night's game with Toronto in the seventh inning. Martinez, batting .348 when he starts, is now 4-for-5 with two doubles and a home run as a pinch hitter.

Chris Coghlan proved there can be a fine line between a great slide and a potentially dangerous one. Stephen Piscotty's throw beat Coghlan by several steps, but catcher Yadier Molina was hunched over collecting the ball. Coghlan soared over him before tucking, flipping as Molina stood up and landing on the plate with his right hand, shoulder and head. That scored the go-ahead run for the Blue Jays in the seventh inning. It came on a Kevin Pillar triple.

Mark Saxon ESPN Staff Writer 

The struggling Blue Jays got some rare good news tonight: a third straight borderline dominant start from Marco Estrada. He struck out nine Cardinals and held them to two runs on six hits over six innings.

Mark Saxon ESPN Staff Writer 

The last-place Blue Jays are 29th in the majors in runs scored and manager John Gibbons will try just about anything to get his listless offense going. Tuesday night in St. Louis, he is starting catcher Russell Martin at third base. Martin hasn't started a game at third since 2008 when he was with the Los Angeles Dodgers. "He looks great at the plate right now. Our big thing is scoring runs, you know? There's no doubt in my mind he can do it. You look at that lineup, he's probably the best athlete on that field. We'll give it a go. If it works, we may do it again."
