Tough loss tonight - things just aren't going right for our heroes.
On the Mound:
Ricky Romero gave a solid effort, despite not having his best. He made it through 7 good innings, yielding 7 hits, 3 walks, and 2 runs. Romero struck out two, but he did generate a ton of grounders and got a couple of timely double plays.
At the Plate:
It was a wash today against solid but unspectacular Cleveland starter Jake Westbrook and the Indians bullpen. The Jays managed a run in the first inning when Alex Gonzalez and Jose Bautista hit back-to-back doubles. Vernon Wells singled but Bautista didn't score and that was the closest the Jays got to their second run. Wells added a double later and Lyle Overbay had a couple of singles. Other than that, not much doing for the Jays, who continue to struggle mightily when the ball stays in the park.
From the Pen:
Shawn Camp pitched a scoreless 8th after Scotty Downs gave up a leadoff hit.
The Jays will hope for better things tomorrow when Brandon Morrow pitches. Despite the loss, it is always encouraging to see good pitching - we always knew this offense would have its problems. Fausto Carmona goes for Cleveland.
