Sweet win: Jays 6 O's 2. The Jays did a bunch of things right. So, what did you think?
With Roy Halladay going tomorrow, the Jays might take 3 out of 4 from the division leader.

Don't look now, but Toronto is five back of the wildcard team, Boston.
Answers to today's questions: the short rest seemed to affect Chacin, and the Jays' bats were lukewarm. Russ Adams continues to sting the ball, even when he makes an out.

Your thoughts?
Ted "The Tease" Lilly strikes again! An 11-2 win.

Aaron Hill? Good ballplayer or good ballplayer? Or all of the above?

And how about Eric Hinske? Yes, he's still two for his last three million, but you look for the good things where you can find them.
She throws like a girl. Who cares. Maybe she can hit...

The Jays had a hazillion chances to score some runs - the Brewers issued seven walks. Oh, it was ugly. There was Hinske's golden sombrero. There was Reed Johnson going 0-5 (does this man need some rest or what?). Alex Rios, 0-4. Ken Huckaby 0 for June...

Roy Halladay wasn't bad, he just wasn't brilliant. Carlos Lee came into the game with 2 HRs in 16 ABs against Doc, and he hit another. Ben Sheets made it stand up.-
Eric Hinske said he needed to play regularly to keep his stroke. So he started against a LH and hit a three run homer.

Not a great night for Gus the Polar Bear, but the bullpen allowed just one run in 6.2 IP, Hill and Hillenbrand each had three hits, and Gord Ash knows the bitter taste of defeat. La plus c'est change, la plus c'est meme chose. I think.

The Jays take two out of three from the Cards, winning tonight behind an outstanding performance by... Ted Lilly.

Ted the Tease. Well done.

It looks like Chris Carpenter had a point to make tonight.

Point taken, Chris.

What road trip?
The Jays send Josh Towers to the hill as they try to avoid the sweep in Houston

Roy Oswalt throws a two hit complete game shutout as the Jays leave Houston with a whimper not a bang.

The Jays rallied off Brad Lidge for two runs in the top of the ninth - it got Gustavo Chacin off the hook, and denied Roger Clemens the win. Then they gave it back in the bottom of the inning, as Morgan Ensberg teed off on Miguel Batista's 3-0 pitch for a walk-off three run homer.

So what did everyone think of bringing in Scott Schoeneweis to face three RH batters in the 9th inning of a tie game?

The Blue Jays needed this one. Ted Lilly against Wandy Rodriguez is by far the best match-up the Jays will get this weekend. Could Ted out-pitch the rookie?

What, you need me to answer that?

My mind dances with the possibilities for a "who's on first" sketch involving someone who doesn't know Mr. Halladay's nickname.

Oh, and for some conspiratorial intrigue, click "More."

Josh Towers (15th round, 1996) started for the Jays, and Jeromy Burnitz was one irritating S.O.B.
