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.
