Buck Martinez has this strange habit of enunciating certain words. It is always amusing when he says Dalton Pompey's name and don't remind me his inability to pronounce Encarnacion for several years.

That suit Zaun had on the other day was shocking (even for his standards).

The Blue Jays ran into a tough Cleveland starter and bullpen last night. They had several opportunities late in the game, but Smoak and Donaldson struck out.

Indians 4 @ Jays 2

Danny Salazar took the Viagra out of the Jays bats, fanning 10 along the way, as the Indians extended their win streak to 6 and stopped the Jays' at 4.

It was a very good game, high on the entertainment scale. Price started for the Jays and wasn't too shabby either, going 7 and striking out 9. As noted above, Toronto had chances but couldn't get the big clutch hit.

EE extended his hit streak to 26 with a single.

Props to the Indians. They played a great game. (But I hope we smack 'em around the next two.)

The Indians are one frustrating baseball team to play against. They have good pitching in both their starting rotation and the bullpen and seem to be getting timely hits right now. Fortunately, Ryan Goins hit the walk-off home run last night after Osuna blew the save.

Indians 3 @ Jays 5

Through 9 innings, Cleveland had out-homered the Jays 3-0 but were knotted on the scoreboard. SS Ryan Goins fixed that by clubbing a 2-run shot in the 10th to send Jays fans home happy.

Double E had his hit streak snapped but he'll trade that for the win any day.

This Cleveland squad is very good. They gave the Yankees all they could handle and are doing the same to the Jays. They're going to be a force next season.

From what I understand it was just a matter of them not getting consistent hitting earlier in the season. A hot September and they could make noise for that last wildcard spot.

Yeah, they are definitely not playing out the string. They're playing as well as anybody right now.

Dickey was as on yesterday as he has been as a Blue Jay.

Indians 1 @ Jays 5

R.A. Dickey tossed a complete game 4-hitter and leading MVP candidate Josh Donaldson added to his credentials with 3 RBIs as Toronto won the rubber match of the series.

Indians skipper Terry Francona went to his bullpen early and often as the Jays chased starter Trevor Bauer in the 2nd, after posting six hits and 5 runs. The pen did its job after that though, holding Toronto scoreless the rest of the way.

The Yankees kept pace, beating Boston in a slugfest. Looks like these two squads are going to go at it, hammer and tongs, to the end of the season.

Jays are off today and host the O's for 3 starting Friday.

O's 10 @ Jays 2

Well, it was overdue - the clobberers got clobbered. Chris Davis with 2, Matt Wieters and Adam Jones went deep as Ubaldo Jimenez won his 10th. The wheels fell off for starter Drew Hutchison in the 6th, when he gave up six straight hits.

David Price will try to even the series this afternoon.
