Doc and Jays lose.

Blue Jays 1 Red Sox 6

This is going to be short, because I have a headache and well writing about losses isn't much fun.

Roy Halladay wasn't great and the Red Sox were. Doc only went 5 innings, only the 3rd time this year he has pitched less than 7 innings, the other two times being his last start before and his first start after his trip to the DL. 8 hits, 5 runs, 2 walks and 2 homers isn't a Doc type start though the 7 strikeouts was. Josh Roenicke pitched 3 great innings only marred by a walk. 

Offensively we only got 6 hits, 2 by Vernon Wells, who drove in our only run. Travis Snider was 0 for 3 with 2 k's. He'll have games like this. 

No Jays of the Day today. Wells came closest with a .096, our only batter with a positive WPA. He and Roenicke get honorable mention. Suckage are Doc (-.246) and Edwin Encarnacion (-.153). 

Tomorrow we have an afternoon game to finish the series with the Red Sox. Brett Cecil (5-1, 4.35) goes against Jon Lester (9-7, 3.71). Cito, I'm begging you now, even though we are facing a lefty don't bat Millar cleanup.
