JAYS 8 – RED SOX 5
Wow!, thats all I have to say about the human highlight wheel known as Vernon Wells. The Toronto Blue Jays put on a show on Tuesday night, in which they hit 5 balls out of the park and all 5 came off the bats of Vernon Wells and Troy Glaus.
Gustavo Chacin(6-1, 5.11) made his return from the 15-day DL and pitched well enough to earn his 6th victory of the season. For the second straight game the Blue Jays bullpen was a little rocky and had the Toronto faithful(read: Me) on the edge of their seats, but ‘ol faithful B.J. Ryan came in to put those fears to rest and pick up his 12th save.
In hitting 3 homeruns, Vernon Wells not only became the 10th player in franchise history to complete the feat and the first since a guy by the name of Delgado did it in 2003, but Wells also recieved his first curtain call, something I think we will be seeing alot more of in the years to come.
3 for 4, 4 RBI, 3R, 3HR
