O's 1 @ Jays 5

Complete turnaround from yesterday's nightmare. Drew Hutchison went 8 2/3s, giving up only one walk and one hit - a solo shot by Chris Davis. His stuff was as electric as it was early in the season. Should give the team a real shot in the arm.

The big guns - Cabrera and Bautista - did their jobs with bit nights at the plate. The rest of the lineup chipped in with timely hits along the way.

Chance to win the series tomorrow and get the lead back down to 3.

O'S 2 @ Jays 1

Excellent game but a tough loss. Might be tougher if Melky Cabrera is out for any length of time after getting hit by a pitch.

Lawrie's return from the DL lasted all of 1 1/2 innings.

Where are ya' EE? Where are ya' Lind?

A little help!

Anyway. No time to mourn. Tigers in for three. They've got the only starting five that matches the A's. It's never easy.

The Tigers will not be in a good mood. They just lost 3 of 4 in New York.

I know.

That hurt almost as much as dropping 2/3 to the O's.

Tigers 5 @ Jays 4

This one stung.

Closer Casey Janssen gave up three runs in the 9th to turn a 4-2 Jays lead into a loss. Jays then loaded the bases in their half of the 9th against Tiger closer Nathan but couldn't score.

And Lawrie is starting to earn a brittle rep. He's on the DL again til September with an oblique strain.

Tigers 2 @ Jays 3

Was at a wedding and missed the game but watched the highlights.

Payback for last night. Jays tied it at 2 in the 9th off closer Nathan and won it in the 10th on an RBI double by Reimold.

Jays are basically doing what I'd hoped since Lawrie, EE and Lind went down - treading water. Both Edwin and Lind are due back soon. If the pitching holds up, they just might make a run when it matters most.

Tigers 5 @ Jays 6 (19)

Ok, so David Price, he of the 15-2 record against the Jays, is staked to a 5-0 lead and the Tigers knock out Jays starter Buehrle before the 4th is done.

Game over, Tigers win the series.

Wait a minute!!!

Our never-say-die heros get a couple off Price and then peck at the Tiger bullpen until they manage to tie it up in the 9th.

Both teams left many ducks on the pond in the ensuing innings and both bullpens were emptied. Finally, in the 19th, the Jays loaded the bases (again). Bautista cracked one off the wall off Tigers starter-turned-reliever-for-one-game Rick Porcello.

Kudos to both bullpens, especially the Jays' who slammed the door shut on the Tigers for 15 2/3 innings.

Great game and one that'll make the flight to Seattle a fun one.

Oh yeah, it was also the longest game in Jays history both in time (6:37) and innings.

The Mariners almost always pitch better, the problem is usually lack of hitting. It seems like some of the young guys are starting to catch on now. I have to admire the Jays fans for their support, we probably had 10,000 of them at the game last night and I'd guess that most drove down from B.C.
