Win Streak Ends. Indians Beat Jays.

Indians 2 Blue Jays 1

Brett Cecil didn't pitch well but was able to work his way out of trouble. He had trouble with his release point all game long. He walked 5 and struck out 5 in 6 innings, but just gave up the 1 run. Brian Tallet came in and gave up the game winning run. Jason Frasor and Scott Downs finished off the game well. 

Offense? We only got 5 hits off emergency Indian starter John Tomlin and the Indians bullpen. Jake Westbrook was to be the starter, but he was traded just before game time. Our lone run was a Jose Molina solo homer. We did hit into some bad luck, some nice plays were made against us and Jose Bautista got thrown out after going too far past second on Vernon Wells' single to left. Dumb move, changed things from runners on first and second, no outs to runner on first one out. Then Adam Lind hit a hard line drive right at the first baseman and Vernon was doubled off. 

In the bottom of the 9th we had runners on first and second with no outs. Aaron Hill bunted them over, good move in the 9th down by one. But Edwin Encarnacion and pinch-hitter Travis Snider struck out to end the game. 

Jays of the Day are Brett Cecil (.217 WPA) and Jason Frasor (.095). Suckage numbers go to Snider (-.273, off the game ending strikeout), Encarnacion (-.263, with a nice play or two) and Escobar (-.159, but some nice defense).

Fred Lewis made a mess of the double that scored the winning run, but odds are the runner would have scored later in that inning.
