The Blue Jays wore red and were left seeing red in the end on Canada Day.

Jose Bautista slugs a one-out double to left-center field off Phillies starter Kyle Kendrick in the first inning.  Bautista would also crank his 25th homer of the season to left field in the seventh.

Pinch-runner Aaron Hill, who came into the game after Yunel Escobar was hit in the hand by a pitch, crosses home plate for the first run of the game.

Hill hails the arrival of Jose Bautista as he scores on Edwin Encarnacion's two-run double put the Red Jays in flight.

Jays starter Ricky Romero throws one of his 109 pitches on the day.  He lasted 6 1/3 innings, giving up four runs but only two were earned.

Chase Utley strokes a single in the fifth inning.  He would key the Phillies ninth inning rally with a double.

Ryan Howard would strike out in the fifth but he would enjoy the last laugh in this one.

Aaron Hill scores ahead of Eric Thames, who crushed a 412 foot home run to right field to give the Jays a 4-2 lead in the bottom of the fifth.

Juan Rivera takes his place in left field but did the Jays no favours with his glove in the ninth inning as he misjudges a fly ball from Chase Utley that was ruled a double.

Frank Francisco tried to slam the door shut in the ninth inning...

...but his leadoff walk to Placido Polanco opened the floodgates.  He went to third on Utley's double and came in to score on Ryan Howard's two-run double to give the Phillies a 7-6 victory.

Next up on POTD, the Jays final game in July.
