Blue Jay Beatdown

Twins_Blue_Jays_Baseball_sff_171543_game.jpgWell, I can say this about the Toronto Blue Jays: They sure do swing the bats with authority.  If the opposing pitcher (like Pavano today) isn’t on his game and leaves too many meatballs out over the plate, this team will make them pay for those transgressions.

It was just one of those days to forget for the Twins, as they were hammered by the Jays from start to finish.  Pavano (4 IP, 10 H, 6 ER) got rocked early, and the pen couldn’t stem the tide late.

Plus, the bats never got going against Shaun Marcum as he continued his dominance over AL batsmen.

Two victories would have been nice, but splitting a series (even a short one) on the road is at least not a disaster.  A split against Boston the next two days would also salvage a road trip that looked like disaster after those first two Yankee games.

Preview (24-15, 2.0 GA DET): Scott Baker (4-3, 4.93) vs. Clay Buchholz (4-3, 3.46)

i love the underdogs. when everyone is counting you out and you prove em wrong-thats what the Jays are doing right now. Jose Bautista man when he was a Pirate I couldnt wait for him to turn it on, but he never did. i guess a change of scenery is beneficial to most everyone
