The Toronto Blue Jays won three out of four this past weekend against the worse team in baseball, the Houston Astros. Despite the fact the Jays were playing a bad team, it was still refreshing to see Toronto winning the four game series, especially after starting the second half of the season on a losing note. Colby Rasmus gets smothered by his teammates after hitting the game winning single. The final game ended in the bottom of the ninth inning when  Colby Rasmus drove in Emilio Bonifacio from second base with a single to give the Jays a 2-1 victory. What makes this win special is the Blue Jays left 14 men on base.  I wasn’t sure if Toronto was going to capitalized with two men on base in the ninth inning.  Fortunately, the Jays got the run Toronto needed to win. Melky Cabrera went four for four at the plate during the game. There was a bad incident involving the Blue Jays in the seventh inning.  Jose Bautista got ejected by umpire Sam Holbrook for arguing balls and strikes. The Blue Jays kicked off the series with a 4-0 shut out.  Jose Reyes went three for four at the plate.  Jay’s starting pitcher, Mark Buehrle had a great outing on the mound.  Buehrle pitched a complete game, giving up two hits, no earned runs, two walks, and struck out nine batters. It got even better for the Jays the next night as Toronto came back twice to win it 12-6.  Edwin Encarnacion went three for four at the plate and racked up five RBIs.  ”He’s (Encarnacion) had another great year,” said Jay’s manager, John Gibbons during the post game press conference. Encarnacion also tied a Blue Jay record by hitting two home runs in the same inning, including a grand slam.  Joe Carter was the first in Blue Jay’s history to hit two homers in the same inning.  Encarnacion becomes the second in Blue Jay’s history. Brandon Morrow The Jays lost the third game 8-6, however, a Blue Jay player reached a milestone in his career during the game.  Mark DeRosa hit his 100th career home run during that game. I got some bad news for Brandon Morrow fans.  Morrow won’t return to the rotation this season because of an entrapped radial nerve in his right forearm. The Jays have signed 16-year-old third base prospect, Bryan Lizardo for $250,000. The Jays head west for a ten game road trip.  The Jays face the Oakland Athletics first.
