Chien-Ming Wang had a mediocre start on the mound for the Toronto Blue Jays as he made his debut with the team earlier this week against the Chicago White Sox. In 7.1 innings pitched, Wang gave up 10 hits, five earned runs, three walks, and struck out two batters. However, Wang was still able to keep the Jays in the game.
At the top of the ninth inning, with two out, Jose Bautista hit a solo home run to tie the game 5-5.
At the top of pitch the 10th, the Jays went ahead 7-5. Casey Janssen came in to pitch in the bottom of the inning. Jansssen ran into a little trouble, though. He gave up a base hit and a walk.
With two on base. two out, Chicago’s best player Adam Dunn came to the plate. I can’t tell you how nervous I was when Dunn entered the batter’s box. Dunn already hit a home run earlier in the game and I knew if he’d hit a home run at that point of time, the White Sox would’ve won the game 8-7.
Thankfully, Dunn hit a routine ground out to end the game. Janssen picked up his 13th save of the season.
Both Adam Lind and Rajai Davis went three for five at the plate.
The final game of the White Sox series was postponed hours before opening pitch because of bad weather in Chicago.
I have a little bad news for Brandon Morrow fans. Morrow is going to be out of the rotation for another two to three weeks as he continues to have tightness in his right forearm.
Blue Jay;s manager, John Gibbons has been named to the American League All-Star team’s coaching staff. Congratulations John!
The Blue Jays won the first of a four game weekend series against the Texas Rangers 3-1. Edwin Encarnacion went one for three at the plate and collected two RBIs. Starting pitcher, Esmil Rogers pitched seven innings, giving up five hits, an earned run, a walk, and struck out a batter.
