Varsho’s three-run homer clinches the Blue Jays’ 5-2 win over Padres

Vásquez, who was added to the roster on Saturday from Triple-A El Paso, allowed four runs (one earned) and four hits in four innings in his first big league game of the season.

The Padres, who have scored just four runs in the past three games, trailed 4-0 in the fifth inning. San Diego had a great opportunity against Berríos, but Manny Machado hit an infield pop-up on the first pitch with two outs and the bases loaded, ending the scoring opportunity.

Erik Swanson gave up a run in the eighth, but stifled the Padres’ rally by getting Eguy Rosario to groundout with two outs and runners on second and third base, preserving the Blue Jays’ 4-2 lead.

Padres manager Mike Shildt and left fielder Jurickson Profar were both ejected in the first inning by plate umpire Ramon De Jesus. Profar threw his bat down violently after being called on a third strike, leading to the ejection. Shildt came out to argue and got into a shouting match with De Jesus before being thrown out.


Blue Jays: RHP Chad Green was placed on the 15-day IL, retroactive to April 17 … RHP Nate Pearson was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo.

Padres: Vásquez filled in for Yu Darvish, who was placed on the IL with neck issues. … RHP Logan Gillaspie was optioned to El Paso. … Pauley was recalled from El Paso, while IF Matthew Batten was sent down.


Blue Jays RHP Chris Bassitt (2-2, 4.03) takes the mound on Sunday in the final game of the three-game series against RHP Joe Musgrove (2-2, 6.29).
