The Toronto Blue Jays were successful against the Boston Red Sox last week, taking two out three games. The Jays lost the first game 4-2.  Catcher, J.P.  Arencibia went  two for four at the plate and racked up two RBIs.  Starting pitcher, Todd Redmond pitched 5.1 innings, giving up two hits, no earned runs, a walk, and struck out five batters. The second game of the series was interesting. As you know, Esmil Rogers was struggling and was relegated to the bullpen.   Rogers was put back in the starting rotation after Josh Johnson suffered a forearm injury.  This meant that Rogers was the starting pitcher in the second game against the Red Sox. Esmil Rogers pitched a solid game against the Red Sox last week,but was unable to get the win. Rogers had a solid outing, and left the game after six innings with his team up 3-1.  Rogers gave up five hits, an earned run, a walk, and struck out six batters. Rogers also had a little help from his fielders. In the fourth inning, Munenori Kawasaki robbed Mike Napoli of  base hit by snagging a sharp line drive, heading towards center field. In the sixth inning, rookie left fielder, Kevin Pillar made a diving catch to prevent an extra base hit off the bat of Jonny Gomes. Brett Cecil came to the mound in the ninth inning, With two out, with a man on  base, Napoli came up to the plate.   I can’t tell you how angry I was when Napoli hit the ball over the left field fence. Brett Lawrie did, eventually drive in the winning run in the 10th inning, but It was little consolation for me, knowing that the Jays had a chance to walk away with a 3-1 victory ad give Rogers the win. The Jays won the third game 2-1.  Pitcher, Mark Buehrle gave up 10 hits, an earned run, two walks, and struck out four batters in seven innings pitched.  I have to say, Buehrle is living up to the Blue Jays expectations. I got a couple of news items to pass along. As  I mention earlier Josh Johnson suffered a forearm injury.  A MRI revealed that Johnson has forearm strain, but nothing too serious. The Jays  have recently recalled Anthony Gose from Triple A Buffalo.
