The Toronto Blue Jays have made it harder for the New York Yankees to make the post season this year by winning two out of three games this past week.  The Yankees practically have to win every game now to make the playoffs. The Jays shut out the Yankees 2-0 in the first game.  Rajai Davis went two for four at the plate and collected an RBI. R.A. Dickey went seven innings, giving up four hits, no earned runs, two walks, and struck out eight batters.   “I think he (Dickey) was throwing harder tonight,” said Jay’s manager, John Gibbons. This victory gave Dickey a 13-12 win-loss record. You couldn’t blame starting pitcher, J.A. Happ for the 4-3 loss in the second game.  Happ went seven innings, gave up four hits, an earned run, three walks, and struck out seven batters.  ”I thought he (Happ) was tremendous,” said Gibbons in the post game press conference. It was the bullpen that cost the Jays the game. Through six innings, Toronto had a 3-0 lead.  The Yankees came back in the seventh inning and scored four unanswered runs. Colby Rasmus went two for four at the plate and racked up two RBIs. It was all Blue Jays in the third game as Toronto won 6-2.  Adam Lind went three for four and collected three RBIs. Starting pitcher, Todd Redmond gave up four hits, an earned run, a walk and struck out seven batters. With the young pitchers, for example Redmond, Esmil Rogers, who are pitching well lately, Gibbons was asked who does he see being in next year’s rotation.  Gibbon’s response was “it is too early to tell.” I have a few news items to pass along. Edwin Encarnacin had surgery in his left wrist this week to remove some cartilage.  The surgery was successful. Jay’s catcher, J.P. Arencibia has been nominated for the Clemente Award.  Congratulation! J.P. Adam Lind hits his 20th home run of the season. Adam Lind recently hit his 20th home run of  the season.  Way To Go Adam! Injuries continue to hamper Toronto.  Pitcher, Brett Cecil is the latest.  Cecil’s season is officially over after suffering an elbow injury.
