Tonight we get to witness the Blue Jay debut of Mississauga native Shawn Hill. I always like watching players in their debuts, I know Shawn has pitched at the big league level before but this one would have to be special for him pitching for the Jays in Toronto. You have to imagine the butterflies comes back for ones like this.
Opposing Shawn on the mound will be 31 year old Colby Lewis, This is actually the second time Colby has faced the Jays this year, And I hope this time goes about as well as last time, He only gave up 3hits in 5.2 innings and he struck out 5, but he gave up 4BBs and 5ERs. Hopefully the Jays can do it again.
|2010 - Colby Lewis||9-12||26||27||1||0||0||0||170.2||154||79||75||19||55||165||3.96||1.22|
In the lineup, Adam Lind is taking a seat today as Overbay gets back into the game at 1st and Wells takes the day off from the field and will DH. Wise takes over for Wells and bats leadoff. Fred Lewis is back in the lineup and plays RF while batting 8th, Snider is in LF and bats 9th. Usually its the other way around with the OF, who knows, I wouldn't of guessed it.
