Munensori Kawasaki and Colby Rasmus It’s hard to believe folks, but the Toronto Blue Jays are on a heck of a winning streak right now.  Toronto has won 11 straight games and are now at .500.  ”We’re playing good baseball,” said Jay’s manager, John Gibbons.  ”We’re doing a little bit of everything.” Rajai Davis drove in the winning run in the first of a three game weekend series against the Baltimore Orioles.  Fan favorite, Munenori Kaweasaki tied the game with his first career home run. Afterwards, Kawasaki came out of the Blue Jay’s dugout and gave the crowd at the Roger’s Center a few traditional Japanese bows.  This guy is a real class act and appreciative.   “He’s (Kawasaki) energized, his teammates love him, the fans love him,” said Gibbons.  ”He keeps doing it.”  During the game, Kawasaki went two for four and collected three RBIs in a 7-6 Blue Jay victory. The Blue Jays won their 10th straight game the next day 4-2.  Jay’s starting pitcher Chien-Ming Wang was the star on this day.  In 6.1 innings pitched, Wang gave up four hits, no earned runs, no walks and struck out two batters. The Blue Jays won the final game against  in 13-5 and extended the winning streak to 11.  Edwin Encarncion went three for five at the plate and collected four RBIs.  Slugger, Jose Bautista went one for three at the plate and racked up three RBIs. Jay’s starting pitcher, Josh Johnson pitched six innings, giving up seven hits, four earned runs, a walk, and struck out five batters. Unfortunately, the winning streak came to an end last night as Tampa Bay defeated Toronto 4-1. The Blue Jays play the Rays again tonight.  I hope Toronto wins tonight and start another streak. In other Blue Jay news, Jose Reyes is expected to return from the disabled list tomorrow.  The question is, What’s going to happen to Kawasaki?  Remember, his job was to fill the void that Reyes left when he got injured.  Will the Blue Jay’s organization send Kawasaki back to the Minors?  Well, Gibbons hinted during one of his press conferences that the Jays might, somehow, keep Munenori on Toronto’s roster.  Keep your fingers crossed folks. More bad news for Brandon Morrow fans.  He has suffered a setback with his sore forearm.  There is no immediate timetable on Morrow’s return to the Jay’s rotation.
