Before I get to Monday’s game against the Boston Red Sox, I got some news about the Toronto Blue Jays.  Adam Lind re-joined the team on Monday after spending a month in Triple A Las Vegas.

The Jays opened the scoring at the top of the first inning when Colby Ramus hit a two run homer.  The Jays increased their lead in the same inning when Edwin Encarnacion drove in Jose Bautista with a RBI double.

Rajai Davis made it 4-0 when he drove in Encarnacion on a forced out.

The Red Sox didn’t give up ,though, as slugger, David Ortiz hit a two run homer in the bottom of the inning to cut Toronto’s lead to 4-2.

At the top of of the second inning, the Blue Jays got their three run lead back when Rasmus drove in Ben Francisco with a single.

In bottom of the third inning, the Red Sox scored two more runs to make it a one run game.

Ryan Kalish tied the game 5-5 in the bottom of the fourth inning by driving in Cody Ross with a single.

At the top of the sixth inning, J.P. Arencibia launched one over the green monster in left field for a two run homer and the Jays took a 7-5 lead.

In the bottom of the inning, though, Jays starting pitcher, Henderson Alvarez left the game due to an injury.  Bluejays .com is reporting that the soreness in Alvarez’s elbow was not too serious , which is good because the Jays can’t afford to lose another pitcher.

Before he left the game, Alvarez gave up only six hits, three earned runs, one walk, and struck out two batters in five innings pitched.

At the top of the seventh inning, Bautista hit a two run homer and increased Toronto’s lead 9-5.   Then the rain came and the field at Fenway Park was covered for at least two hours.

When the game resume, Ortiz hit a solo home run in the eighth inning, but that would be the only scoring after the rain delay as the Blue Jays won 9-6.  

The Jays opened the scoring in the second game when Edwin Encarnacion drove in Brett Lawrie with a infield single.

Starting pitcher, Aaron Laffey had a very good outing on the mound, giving up only three hits, no earned runs, two walks and struck out two batters in six innings pitched.

 Despite the good pitching effort, the bullpen let the Blue Jays down by giving up three runs in the seventh inning and two runs in the eighth inning.  As a result, Boston went on to win 5-1.

The Jays ended the three game series on a losing note on Wednesday afternoon.  They got hammered by Boston 10-4.

The Blue Jays hosts the Los Angeles Angels for a four game series starting Thursday night.
