That was just frustrating. The Brewers were crushing everything thrown to the plate. The Jays couldn't hit anything.
J.A. Happ gave up 3 doubles in the first inning, it seemed lucky the Brewers only scored two runs. He gave up 2 more doubles and 2 more runs in the 3rd. A single and a walk into the 4th and Gibby had seen enough. Dustin McGowan got out of the innings without more runs scoring. Todd Redmond had no more luck than Happ, he gave up 2 doubles and a single (someone must have broken a bat), and another 2 runs. Redmond didn't look good out there, one of the few times this season he hasn't looked good.
Kyle Drabek came out to pitch the last two innings and he did look good in his first appearance for the Jays, allowing just 1 hit and getting 3 strikeouts. And he didn't walk anyone. He was about the only Jay to look decent.
We only managed 2 hits, a Dioner Navarro single and a Colby Rasmus double, in 7 innings, off Milwaukee starter Mike Fiers. We had no more luck against relievers Zach Duke and Brandon Kintzler. We didn't seem to hit anything hard all game long. Well, except for those of us that started drinking during the game. I don't know if Fiers was all that good, or if we were just that bad. I'm really ready to give up on Juan Francisco.
There was an interesting moment when Gibby picked pitcher Drew Hutchison to pinch hit with 2 out in the 5th. I guess the idea was to save our 'real' pinch hitters for a moment when there wasn't already 2 outs and no one on, but then Adam Lind was never used.
Teams look bad, and lifeless, when they lose, but man, we looked so bad tonight.
Colby Rasmus had the number for JoD today, at .101, but there were a couple of catches that he could have, should have made in the outfield, so I don't think he deserves it.
Suckage goes to Happ (-.283). And let's give one to the offense as a ground. 2 hits?
We had 689 comments in a pretty pleasant GameThread, with the odd oddity. I led the way for the first time in months. I think I deserve credit for sticking that one out.
