No bench, no starter.
Doesn’t sound like a winning combination.
It wasn’t — not for the Blue Jays and certainly not for Chien-Ming Wang.
The Jays bench was bare due to injuries but Wang, making his fifth start for the Jays, simply had nothing.
Wang picked up where he left it in Boston and his start in Beantown was a complete mess — seven earned runs in 1.2 innings.
The veteran right-hander wasn’t much better against the Detroit Tigers on Tuesday night as in the second inning he was pounded for six runs on seven hits in a game the Jays would ultimately lose 7-6.
The loss snapped the Jays home game win streak at seven.
