There is none more team hotter than the Blue Jays.
Toronto won again, beating the Oakland A’s 4-2 this afternoon. Mark Buehrle was on the hill and allowed two runs in seven innings. Because he was pitching the game lasted a crisp two hours and twenty-five minutes.
On offense the Jays scored all four of their runs in the second inning thanks to a Kevin Pillar RBI single and a Ryan Goins three-run homer, all off of Jesse Chavez. Outside of that inning Chavez was good, striking out nine and not walking anyone. And, at least until Act III, Scene 2, Mrs. Lincoln probably very much enjoyed “Our American Cousin.”
This was the Blue Jays’ 11th straight win. If they win out, they’ll finish the season 110-52. And my inclusion of that little factoid is only a partial joke, I reckon.
