Jose Bautista hit a three-run homer for the second straight day Monday against the Cubs.

Bautista has hit eight homers during his current 12-game hitting streak, and he's up to 32 bombs for the year. Just when it seemed he'd probably be in decline at age 33, he's turned in his best season since 2011.
Sep 8 - 9:53 PM

Jose Bautista hit his 30th home run on Friday.

Bautista's two-run home run drove Red Sox starter Allen Webster from the game, but the Blue Jays' bullpen was unable to hold numerous leads and the team fell 9-8 in ten innings. He would finish the game 2-for-5 with two RBI and two runs scored. Bautista remains one of the top power-hitters in the game and is slashing .287/.397/.522 on the season.
Sep 5 - 11:56 PM

Jose Bautista launched his fifth homer in as many games in Sunday's victory over the Yankees.

The solo blast was his lone hit on the day and he "only" has six total hits during his five-game homer streak, but that's hardly something to complain about. With 29 bombs on the season, Bautista is starting to inch toward league leader Nelson Cruz. He's hitting .283/.398/.521 with 83 RBI.
Aug 31 - 3:53 PM

Jose Bautista walked and swatted a solo home run in six plate appearances as the Blue Jays were defeated by the Red Sox in 11 innings on Tuesday.

Bautista took Alex Wilson out to left-center in the seventh inning for his 25th home run of the season. The slugger had been held hitless in his previous four games, but he still sports an impressive .281/.397/.500 slash line with 78 RBI.
Aug 26 - 11:57 PM

Bautista is batting .290/.406/.512 with 24 home runs, 24 doubles, and 77 RBI in 121 games this season.
Aug 20 - 5:43 PM

Jose Bautista was the hero in Sunday's marathon 6-5 victory over the Tigers, delivering a walkoff RBI single in the 19th inning to bring an end to the madness.

Bautista had struggled throughout the day until that point, as he finished the day 1-for-8 plus a pair of walks. The Jays loaded the bases with nobody out against Rick Porcello to begin the 19th inning, and Bautista responded with a deep fly to right field that easily cleared the drawn-in outfield. Joey Bats is now slashing .294/.411/.511 with 22 long balls and 70 RBI on the season.
Aug 10 - 7:56 PM

Jose Bautista finished 3-for-4 with a double, a home run, and three RBI on Wednesday as the Blue Jays defeated the Orioles on Wednesday.

The two runs the Blue Jays scored in the first inning, sans Bautista's input, was more than enough for starter Drew Hutchison, but Bautista provided plenty of insurance. He belted a two-run home run in the second, and knocked in another run with a double in the sixth. The slugger's slash line remains at an astounding .297/.412/.525 with 22 home runs and 68 RBI.
Aug 6 - 9:59 PM

Jose Bautista finished 1-for-3 with a sacrifice fly and a solo home run in Thursday's win against the Astros.

Bautista staked the Jays to an early 1-0 lead with a first-inning home run off of starter Jake Buchanan. He helped tie the game up at 5-5 in the eighth inning with the sacrifice fly. The slugger has now gone yard 21 times this season with 63 RBI and a fantastic .293/.414/.519 slash line.
Jul 31 - 11:07 PM

Jose Bautista went 3-for-4 with two home runs and four RBI in Friday's loss to the Yankees.

Bautista was the extent of the Jays' offense on this night, slugging a three-run homer in the first inning and a solo shot in the third. It was his second multi-homer game of the season. He's now up to 20 home runs for the year, which ties him for ninth in the American League.
Jul 25 - 10:03 PM

Jose Bautista homered and doubled to lead the Blue Jays past the Red Sox 6-4 on Wednesday.

The homer off Andrew Miller was his first since July 2 (and the first Miller has given up since May 13). Whether it's a coincidence or not, Bautista has slumped mightily with Edwin Encarnacion sidelined. Still, this makes back-to-back two-hit games for him for the first time since June 4-5.
Jul 24 - 12:40 AM
