Who knows? Things have not unfolded as expected. Peavy and Cain both reversed their previous performances and pitched well....and both lost. Yesterday was the first time Cain has made it past the 6th inning.

And the slumping Tulo provided the key hit with his home run.

So, while in theory the Giants have the advantage today with Bumgarner, who knows what will happen? The Giants bats have been in a coma, maybe they will awaken.

Jays 4 @ Giants 0

Toronto has won the first two games of the series but in the process has helped two struggling Giants pitchers get well. Both Jake Peavy on Monday and Matt Cain yesterday had their best outings in quite some time but were simply slightly outpitched.

Yesterday J. A. Happ went 8 2/3rds and ran his record to 5-0 for the Jays, supported by a home run and 3 RBIs by Tulowitzki.

I don't know what's more surprising this year so far - the Jays terrific starting pitching or the plummeting offensive numbers. But I'm grateful for the former and trust the latter will improve soon.

Well bleep blanking bleep.....Giants have the bases loaded with one out in the bottom of the tenth...and don't score.

We wouldn't be in extra innings if back in the fifth, Posey had done anything other than hitting into that double play. Pence would have cleared the bases with his blast right after that.

Posey is struggling lately. He keep over swinging and pounding the ball into the ground instead of swatting line drives. He has killed rallies with double play balls all through this series.

Finally....the Jays gifted the win to SF in the 13th. HBP....bad fielder's choice....wild pitch...intentional walk...and unintentional four pitch walk to Posey provides the winning run. The Giants needed the help, they were something like two for thirty five with runners in scoring position through this series.

Bumgarner did not bring his A stuff today, he walked four and had long counts with most of the batters he faced. He was up to 116 pitches when he was removed in the 7th. But Toronto did not capitalize on the opportunities that they had against him, just one run.

As noted above, tough way to lose.

Off day today then on to Texas for three.

R. A. Dickey went 8 and only allowed three singles. Tulowitzki and EE each hit their 7th dingers and that was plenty on this day.

Jays 5 @ Rangers 6 (10)

Drew Stubbs walked off the Jays with a solo shot off reliever Gavin Floyd in the 10th, after Toronto hit two homers in the 9th to tie.

Sanchez goes for the Jays in the rubber match today against Cesar Ramos.

Quite the show today. You seldom see a clean punch like that landed in a baseball brawl. That was the best punch I've seen since back in '86 when Dave Stewart had a one punch ko of Cleveland manager Pat Corralles who had tried to karate kick him.

Great punch. Well deserved too. Made the Jays look weak.

Wish I could have seen the game live in Philadelphia - I saw the reports and I feel bad for poor Bautista. New Jays fan here... I liked what I saw when I saw them in Toronto.
