Blue Jays strike out in San Fran in Jackson’s record start

Blue Jays strike out in San Fran in Jackson’s record start
Sports
Edwin Jackson strung together five innings in his Blue Jays debut, but what was a feel-good moment for the 35-year-old right-hander ended in a no-decision as Toronto lost 4-3 in San Francisco on a sixth-inning solo homer from Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford.

The homer came off Jays reliever Ryan Tepera, only the second he’s given up this season.

Jackson’s performance was so-so — six hits (five for extra bases), three runs (two earned), two strikeouts and a walk — but special nonetheless. He became the only player in major-league history to suit up for 14 different teams, breaking a tie with retired reliever Octavio Dotel at 13. Former Jays outfielder Matt Stairs is one of three others — along with pitchers Mike Morgan and Ron Villone — who played for 12 clubs.
