Toronto triumphant in Encarnacion's return

"That's one of the best you'll ever see", the color commentators said of the catch.

Bauer gave up four runs in six innings. Fans cheered his name when the lineups were announced before the game, then roared in approval at a video tribute prior to the first pitch. "I thought it was nice all the way around". In his three career starts against the Tribe, Stroman hasn't allowed more than one earned run in a game.

Meanwhile, a 4-2 Blue Jays win on Monday improved their record to 12-20, but they're still 10 games back in the American League East.

Encarnacion's return on Monday was not only a celebration of his time in Toronto, but also a reminder of why this particular era of the Blue Jays had to end at some point.

Last to go in the first round is David Ross and Lindsay Arnold, who put together a moving waltz to Tim McGraw's "Humble and Kind". Kordei delivered the night's most memorable dance, a thrilling contemporary routine about breaking free from internet bullying.

"A good outing for him, considering the outing he was coming off", manager John Gibbons said.

With two outs in the sixth inning, a runner in scoring position and Toronto up 4-0 on Cleveland, Pillar laid all the way out to rob Jose Ramirez of what sure as hell should have been a base hit. Lindor was ruled safe when second baseman Devon Travis was called for interference.

Roberto Osuna finished for his fifth save.

Some strong recent play from the bullpen continue to get the Jays out of the jam. Joe Smith battled through long at bats to strike out both Encarnacion and Ramirez, both of whom represented the tying run.

But the Cavs rallied from a 52-49 halftime deficit to take a 79-77 lead after three quarters as Korver got hot from 3-point range. The Cavaliers took a two-point lead into the fourth quarter and took command of the game with a 20-3 run.

Bauer threw a career-high 125 pitches, 77 (62 percent) for strikes.

Pillar spoke to the media following the game wearing a Superman knit cap and a Blue Jays shirt with the Superman logo on it. They have scored three runs or fewer in seven consecutive games and in 17 games overall this season. Diaz provides insurance while OF Michael Brantley recovers from a sprained right ankle sustained Sunday. At the start of free agency, the Blue Jays reportedly offered him a four-year deal worth near $80 million, but Encarnacion's representatives made a decision to test the open market. Martin said his shoulder has been sore since spring training.

The win went to Marcus Stroman (3-2, 3.38).

Right-hander Carlos Carrasco (3-2, 2.18) will face the Blue Jays and right-hander Mike Bolsinger, who will be making his first big-league start of the season. Bolsinger is slated to make a spot start for the Jays with J.A. Happ and Aaron Sanchez on the disabled list. Bolsinger was 1-1 in four games, including two starts for Class AAA Buffalo.
