After a fun Boston series, tough one tonight.
On the Mound:
Brett Cecil was terrific. He pitched into the eighth and allowed just two runs (one earned), scattering seven singles and one walk. Cecil struck out 9 and got 8 of 14 of his batted balls on the ground.
At the Plate:
Here's where things fell apart. The Jays managed just three hits, two by Adam Lind (who also had the only extra-base hit, a double). The Jays did manage a number of walks, but with no hits to knock them in, it wasn't to be.
From the Pen:
Shawn Camp got an out to finish the 8th. Kyle Drabek pitched a clean 9th with three groundouts.
In the Field:
A Kelly Johnson fielding error led to a run.
Brett Cecil was the Jays lone Jay of the Day
The recap title comes from the same song, "The Commander Thinks Aloud."
