Blue Jays reliever Tim Mayza left Friday night’s 6-5 walk-off win over the Yankees in the 10th inning after suffering a left elbow injury and is undergoing further evaluation by the teamís medical staff, the club announced.
After releasing a 3-2 pitch to Didi Gregorius, the ball sailed behind Gregorius and Mayza fell to the ground in obvious pain. The 27-year-old was visibly emotional as his teammates and Blue Jays staff surrounded him on the mound before he left with a trainer, not moving his arm.
Bo Bichette was the walk-off hero in the bottom of the 12th inning with a solo home run to left field. Following a debut that’s seen Bichette add a new record seemingly every game, this was the 21-year-old’s first career walk-off.
