I've Been Waiting for You to Come Back Since You Left Minneapolis - Game 43, Jays at Twins

New, 125 comments

Thanks to Lucinda Williams for today's title, and boy was it an exciting game last night in Minneapolis! Matt Stairs hit a grand slam in the 1st inning and the Jays managed to hold on, earning the win for Doc Halladay despite him not being at his best. He did strike out 8 and walk no one, which was quite good. Anyway, the Jays got some lucky breaks, particularly as the run that turned out to be the difference scored when Scott Rolen got picked off 2nd but Jesse Crain threw the ball into left field, allowing Rolen to score. Scott Downs nailed down the save again and he looked great for the third straight night - hopefully Snakeface has earned a day off. Anyway, the Jays play a getaway game this afternoon before heading to Citizen's Bank Park in Philadelphia to play their first interleague series of the year. Dustin McGowan, who was lights out two starts ago and bombed out last start, pitches against Glen Perkins, who's only made 1 start this season. Perkins is a lefty, and they've given the Jays fits this season, but hopefully they can snap out of it today. I won't be able to watch the game, as I'll be at work. Let's go Jays!!
