Guerrero homer, Jays beat Astros

+

Lots to like about that game. Joe Panik hit a three-run homer when we really needed one, and Vladimir Guerrero had a two-run shot the next inning. Lourdes Gurriel threw Myles Straw at the plate, on a single to left. Ross Stripling allowed just 1 run in 5 innings (even though he gave up 7 hits and seemed to be in trouble in most of the innings). And the bullpen did a nice job. If you missed Lourdes throw, I honestly didn’t think he had a chance at getting the out (and by the looks of things, Straw didn’t either). Stripling had two base runners in the first. Two in the third. Four in the fourth (with the run-scoring against him on a bases-loaded walk, and putting Ross in jeopardy of being pulled early). And one more in the fifth. So he wasn’t totally dominant but he made the pitches when he needed to.
