Toronto discouraged after series loss to Red Sox

TORONTO -- The Blue Jays are coming off another tough series loss to Boston, in which the club scored two runs in the final two games.

Toronto won the first game against the Red Sox to close out April, but stumbled to the tune of only 11 hits and three errors the rest of the way.

When asked if there was anything encouraging to be taken from the series, manager John Gibbons responded, "No, to be honest with you. No.

"The last few days, I haven't been sitting around my room thinking, 'I feel good about that,'" Gibbons said.

It's early May and the season is well under way, yet Toronto has won only a single series all season, which came April 12-14 in Kansas City. The Blue Jays are currently sporting the third-worst record in the Majors.

The offense has been feast or famine, with the majority of the time being famine, having scored more than three runs in only 12 of their 29 games prior to Friday's contest vs. the Mariners.

"We're not looking for things to build on and feel good about," Gibbons said. "Bottom line is win. Just compete and win, and it hasn't happened yet."
