I am hot and sticky from sitting in direct sunlight during that two hour 42 minute game in which the Blue Jays came out victorious 5-1, bouncing back from a rare loss Friday night.
David Price did what aces are supposed to do: he gave his team a solid start, tossing seven innings of three-hit ball striking out eight. He did allow four walks, but he managed to get out of jams except for the seventh when Caleb Joseph singled home Chris Davis.
Jose Bautista could have had three RBI's on a solo homer in the first and a double in the third; however the double bounced on the rubbery turf and went over the wall, which made Josh Donaldson return to third base. Edwin Encarnacion was subsequently hit (nothing stupid came out of it) before Troy Tulowitzki and Justin Smoak were retired to strand three runners on base.
The Blue Jays scored again in the fourth inning when Ben Revere singled home Ryan Goins, then in the fifth Russell Martin plated one on a ground out and Goins (who went 2-for-4) drove in Justin Smoak with a ground-rule double.
I am now off to Hamilton to see Alex Anthopoulos and Stephen Brunt at Pitch Talks. Follow along on Twitter using the hashtag #PitchTalks!
