Jordan Romano gives up walk off home run

Published May 15, 2024 at 7:01 PM

The Toronto Blue Jays' struggles continued as they suffered a heartbreaking 3-2 loss to the Baltimore Orioles in a nail-biting series finale.

Despite showing signs of an offensive resurgence, the Blue Jays were ultimately undone by a ninth-inning walk-off served up by the struggling Jordan Romano.

Romano, the Blue Jays' usually reliable closer, has been mired in a concerning slump, failing to close out games with his typical dominance. The Ontario native had an opportunity to secure a series split against the Orioles but faltered, serving up a game-ending blast that left the Blue Jays reeling.

While the loss stings, the Blue Jays can take solace in the fact that their offense appears to be finding its groove. After a prolonged slump, the Blue Jays' bats have shown signs of life, providing a glimmer of hope for a team that has struggled to consistently produce runs.

As the Blue Jays prepare to face the Tampa Bay Rays on Friday, they will need to address their bullpen woes and find a way to secure victories in close games. While the offense appears to be trending in the right direction, the team's success will ultimately hinge on their ability to hold leads and secure wins in the late innings.
