Happ Was Hopeless

Joe Robbins

Reds 11 Blue Jays 1

Another troublesome day as the Jays struggle to find the bats. Colby Rasmus provided the only run for the Jays on a shot to right field, in the top of the 7th.

J.A Happ pitched a poor game on the mound, he delivered 99 pitches, with only 62 strikes accompanied by 5 K's in 4 innings, while giving up 7 hits, 4 walks, 8 runs, 7 earned, and 1 homerun. Even with the poor performance he showed good power on his fastball, occasionally getting a strikeout on the pitch. This was especially bad when minimal offence was provided.

Only 4 hits were made today, coming off the bats of Melky Cabrera, Brett LawrieColby Rasmus (who provided a solo shot) and Adam Lind, who came in as a pinch hitter in the bottom of the 5th for J.A Happ.

Rob Rasmussen I thought had a pretty good showing. He came into the game in the 5th for 3 innings, delivering 4 K's, 3 hits, 1 walk. He also let up a 3 run homer in the 7th, but only after pitching 2.2 solid innings of baseball.

Jose Reyes left the game in the top of the 5th, after taking a foul ball off the outside of his left leg.

Jay of the Day I feel should be given to Rob Rasmussen, because of a good 3 innings despite a homerun.

Suckage? Can I give it to the team as a whole?
