Another sad efforts against the Rays. Jays finish the season 4 and 14 against the Rays. Roy Halladay gave up a 2 run homer in the first and that was all that was needed. Other than the first, Doc pitched well, not allowing another run in his 7 innings. Jesse Carlson gave up a homer in his inning of work, after his 3 game suspension.
Offensively, we did nothing, other than another homer for Edwin Encarnacion. He has power, that wasn't a cheapie. But since that's all we got Doc took his 10th loss of the season and his 4th loss to the Rays, the first time any team has beaten Doc 4 times in a year.
As well as the loss, Marco Scutaro left the game with a heel injury. It is possible that he will be gone for what's left of the season. If he is, he's had one of the best season's we've ever had from a shortstop.
Jays of the Day is Doc (.120 WPA). Suckage Jays are Vernon Wells (-.179), Rod Barajas (-.114) and Jose Bautista (-.110).
We start three games at home against Baltimore tommorrow. David Purcey (0-2, 6.32) goes against Chris Tillman (2-3, 4.50).
