Blue Jays End Dodgers' Win Streak with 3-1 Victory

Toronto's Blue Jays snapped the Los Angeles Dodgers' six-game winning streak with a 3-1 victory on Sunday, thanks to a solid outing from Kevin Gausman and timely hitting from Alejandro Kirk.

Gausman, making his third start of the season, allowed just five hits and one run over seven innings. He struck out five batters and walked none, earning his first win of the year. The Blue Jays' bullpen, led by Yimi García, Tim Mayza, and Jordan Romano, held the Dodgers to just one hit over the final two innings to secure the victory.

Kirk, who had been mired in an 0-for-11 slump, went 3-for-3 with a solo home run in the second inning. His homer gave the Blue Jays their first lead since the fifth inning of Tuesday's loss at Kansas City. Daulton Varsho and Isiah Kiner-Falefa also drove in runs for Toronto.

The Dodgers' lone run came on a solo homer by Freddie Freeman in the sixth inning. Shohei Ohtani, who was making his first appearance against the Blue Jays since being traded to Los Angeles, had a deep drive to center field in his first at-bat, but Varsho made a leaping catch on the warning track.

The Blue Jays improved to 4-12 when scoring three or fewer runs, while the Dodgers dropped to 15-10 on the season.
