Nice shades Gustavo Jr.
This will be brief. My fingers hurt and it's making it tough to type.....
Brett Cecil pitched a great game for us against a very tough opponent.
6 and two thirds innings, 6 hits, 4 ER, 1 BB, 8 K and he got the win.
But he got left out there for one inning to long and he got tagged. I understand why The Cito ran him back out there (low pitch count, hitting his spots, etc) but why the fuck was no one ready in the pen?
Jose Bautista had a great game with both the stick and the glove. He saved a big run in the bottom of the sixth on a nice play to his left. He did not get an out on the play but was able to keep the ball of the infield. With the bat he went 3 for 5 with 3 doubles. He looks a little better suited to hit down in the order.
Actually having a lead off guy. Fred Lewis is music to my eyes.....It's been too long since we had a guy that puts pressure on the defense with his legs. He ended up 2 for 4 with a double and a walk. He was able to get some great jumps off Garza and should steal us quite a few bags.
Aaron Hill looked a little lost for the first few at bats. But he managed to get his timing together enough to launch a dinger to left. He also walked.
The Bottom Line:
We win a game that was way to close considering the effort we got from our starter. We were up 5 - 0 and 6 - 1. Final score ending up being 6 - 5 Good Guys.
Tomorrow we got Ricky and his 1.57 ERA on the hill for a 6:10pm start. Your Toronto Blue Jays will be looking for their 11th win of the year.
