The ScoreJays' Kikuchi levels A's Soderstrom trying to avoid pop-up at dugout

Of course one of the most bizarre plays of the season happened at the Oakland Coliseum.In the top of the 10th inning of Sunday's game between the Athletics and Toronto Blue Jays, Toronto's Davis Schneider lifted a pop-up toward the visiting dugout. A's first baseman Tyler Soderstrom had a beat on it thanks to the Coliseum's vast foul territory until Blue Jays pitcher Yusei Kikuchi accidentally flattened Soderstrom while trying to get out of the way.The umpire called Schneider out because of Kikuchi's obstruction, meaning the play was officially scored as a pop-up to the first baseman. Soderstrom remained in the game, and it appeared as though Kikuchi was no worse for wear in the dugout. The incident almost devolved into something bigger: Words appeared to be exchanged between the two teams. Several Blue Jays were on the top steps of their dugout before umpires restored order. Tempers flared after Tyler Soderstrom collided with a member of the Blue Jays near the visitor's dugout A's on NBCS (@NBCSAthletics) June 9, 2024 A microphone also caught someone - it was unclear whether it was a fan or a member of the Blue Jays - heckling Oakland pitcher Austin Adams after the play. Had a good chuckle at the A s fan yelling at Austin Adams during the Kikichi/Soderstrom stuff. Kevin Michie (@KevinMichie) June 9, 2024 After the chaos died down, Adams eventually got the third out of the inning, but it was too little too late for the A's. Earlier in the 10th, Toronto's Isiah Kiner-Falefa hit a bases-clearing double to give the Blue Jays a 6-4 victory.Copyright © 2024 Score Media Ventures Inc. All rights reserved.

The ScoreReport: Blue Jays among teams interested in Rockies' McMahon

The Toronto Blue Jays are among several teams showing interest in Colorado Rockies third baseman Ryan McMahon, reports MLB Network's Jon Morosi.However, the Rockies infielder is highly unlikely to be available at the trade deadline, a source told Morosi.McMahon is in the midst of his finest season, slashing .286/.366/.483 with 10 home runs and 33 RBIs in 54 games. The 29-year-old also owns a better road OPS (.905) than at his hitter-friendly home of Coors Field (.785). The left-handed hitting McMahon, who also has experience at first and second base, could provide the Blue Jays with additional production at third base. Toronto third basemen have combined to post an 86 wRC+ this season, which ranks 23rd in the big leagues. PLAYER HR RBI OPS WAR Ryan McMahon 10 33 .849 1.5 Isiah Kiner-Falefa 4 15 .726 1.1 Ernie Clement 2 7 .631 0.1 McMahon signed a six-year, $70-million contact extension in March 2022. He's earning the remainder of $12 million this season and is set to earn an additional $12 million in 2025 before his salary increases to $16 million in 2026 and 2027.Copyright © 2024 Score Media Ventures Inc.
