The Juice: Jose Bautista homers twice — including 200th of career — in win over Red Sox (Big League Stew)

Your browser does not support iframes. The Juice returns for season No. 6! It's almost eligible for free-agency! Stop by daily for news from the action, along with great photos, stats, video highlights and more. After winning 11 straight, the Toronto Blue Jays entered play on Saturday losers in four of their last five. No worries, though. Jose Bautista can fix that with two swings of the bat, which is exactly what he did. With the first, he connected for a solo shot in the sixth. With the second, he put Toronto ahead with a tw0-run blast in the eighth that ended up being the game winner in Toronto's 6-2 win over the Boston Red Sox. On the season, those were home runs No. 17 and 18 for Bautista. On the grander scale, the homers were number 200 and 201 in his career. 142 have come since 2010. From 2004-09 he hit 59. Cuddyer keeps rolling in Rockies win: There was no drama on Saturday as Michael Cuddyer extended his MLB best hitting streak to 26 games with a first inning RBI single. That put Colorado up 1-0 and would stand as their only run until the ninth inning when rookie Nolan Arenado singled home Josh Rutledge for the 2-1 walk-off victory. First to 50: Unless you're a fan of the St. Louis Cardinals or Cincinnati Reds, you have to be enjoying the roll the Pittsburgh Pirates are on right now. With their 2-1 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers — thanks to solo home runs from Pedro Alvarez and Garrett Jones — the Battlin' Buccos have now won eight consecutive games. But not only that! They're also the first team to reach 50 wins this season. Remarkable doesn't cover it.
