Jays make it exciting

JAYS 7 – RED SOX 6

    The Blue Jays continue to power their way up the standings in the AL East with a win against Boston last night. Toronto, led by their ace Roy Halladay(6-1, 2.88), jumped out to an early lead on Monday night off homeruns by Wells and Overbay. After leaving the game with a 6-3 lead and in line for the victory, Halladay watched as Justin Speier gave up a 3-run HR in the top of the 8th to Jason Varitek to tie the game.   

    My hat goes off to Bengie Molina, who in the 8th after having a sure double called foul on a very questionable call, battled back from an 0-2 count to hit a double to the gap. Molina was replaced at 2nd base by pinch runner Eric Hinske, who was moved to third on a sacrifice bunt by Aaron Hill and then driven in by a pinch-hit base hit by Shea Hillenbrand for the winning run.

    Toronto will look to make it 2 in-a-row Tuesday when they send Gustavo Chacin(5-1, 5.31) to the mound fresh off the injured list.

    The bullpen almost let us down but two of the most reliable Jays came though in the end. Huge hit by Shea and Ryan closed the door. It will be good to see Gustavo Chacin back in action tonight. Great blog by the way!
