The Jays finally put some runs on the board, and thanks to Gregg Zaun, even managed to put one pitch over the wall. But it was a costly win, as Orlando Hudson left the game with a foot injury that might be pretty serious. Russ Adams also took a hard fall in the ninth inning on his second error of the ballgame, so all kinds of misadventures in the middle infield tonight. Toronto takes the season series 10-9 -- look for these two teams to be playing more significant September games in the near future.
Okay, that must be why the Orioles like Daniel Cabrera so much. A dominating performance from the Baltimore righty, a not-exactly-great return to the rotation by Ted Lilly, and a box score featuring about a dozen members of the 2003 New Haven Ravens. Any good signs from the Blue Jay youngsters tonight?
Gustavo Chacin pitched a gem and the offence and bullpen both came through late in the game to spoil Labour Day in Baltimore. Hopefully, the Jays can use this win to propel themselves out of the late-season doldrums.
Bah, Humbug! Another loss as the bats can't do anything against Kazmir, Borowski and Baez.
Just one more strike...


The Jays drop it 5-3 to fall below .500 for the first time since July 19.

And Ch(en) got the win. That was frustrating.
Ho hum, just another win.

Wait...Bush got some run support? What's next, a hurricane? Someone wearing earplugs during a baseball game?
Josh Towers held Cleveland to five hits in his seven innings - alas, all five went for extra bases. Two solo homers, three doubles, and a throwing error gave the Indians four runs.
Rob here. Magpie's busy mocking Millson.
Ho hum, just another win.

Boy, that Miguel Batista is good for nothing, eh?

The first four Yankee batters of the game scored, and that was basically all she wrote.

The Jays return home with a 5-8 mark on their 13-day road trip.

Dave Bush was under a lot of scrutiny tonight and faced a lot of pressure to stop a losing skid. He came through with flying colours, firing 6 shutout innings and striking out 7 Yankees in the Bronx. One monster Blue Jay inning did in the pinstripers tonight.
This was, for the most part, a terrific game. It started out as a fine, tight pitcher's duel between Al Leiter and Josh Towers. The Jays took a 3-2 lead in the top of the 8th, but Schoeneweis and Speier let the Yankees tie it up. So the Jays took a 4-3 lead in the top of the 9th against Mariano Rivera himself, only to see Miguel Batista spit it right back up, as if he played for the 1978 Red Sox or something: a leadoff homer to Matsui, three bases on balls, and a game-winning hit by Felix Escalona.

Felix Friggin' Escalona? There are no words...


Well, he tried.
Meh. The Jays are swept in Detroit.

This one was like Friday, only worse.
