All you really need to know about that one is that Brett Lawrie and Colby Rasmus led off the game with walks and we couldn't score them. Then, in the 3rd, they both got on base again, and we couldn't score them. And that was about that.
Henderson Alvarez wasn't good. 5.2, 8 hits, 3 walks, 2 home runs with 6 strikeouts. He was very very lucky to only allow 4 earned. Of course, if a couple of calls went his way, things would have been better.
No Jays of the Day for this game. Suckage goes to Henderson (-.116), Davis (-.116) and Edwin (-.108, 1 for 4, 3 k)
Game two is up in a few minutes. The GameThread should go up at 7:15.
