It was music to my ears when I heard that both Brett Lawrie and J. P. Arencibia were  back in the Toronto Blue Jay’s lineup again.  Seeing Lawrie play again was especially exiting to me.   In fact, he scored the Jay’s first run in game one against the Boston Red Sox.

Game one was probably the best I ever seen the Toronto Blue Jays play in over a month.   Everything seemed to be clicking at the right moment for the Jays and they managed to hold on to win it 7-5. 

Rajai Davis made a couple of  spectacular catches during the game.

Edwin Encarnacion hit his 38th home run of the season and is getting very close to the 100 RBI plateau.

As for Jay’s starting pitcher, Henderson Alvarez, he had a good quality start, which has been a rare occurrence for him this season.  In 6.1 innings pitched, he gave up only four hits, two earned runs, two walks, and struck out one batter.

Despite two lengthy rain delays, they were able to complete the second game.

The Jays jumped out to a 5-0 lead in the second inning.   The Jays would end up winning it 9-2.   This the way I like to my beloved Blue Jays play.

Anthony Gose hits his first career home run against Boston.

In the ninth inning, Anthony Gose, who had a five RBI night, hit his first ever Major League home run.  It looks like this guy (Gose) maybe the whole package.  He can run, he can hit, and he can field.  Here is one player to watch in the future.

Jay’s starting pitcher, Aaron Laffey had a very good quality start, giving up only four hits, two earned runs, two walks and struck out two batters in 4.2 innings pitched.

It wasn’t easy, but the Jays managed to complete the sweep over the Red Sox by winning 4-3 this afternoon.  This is the second time in a row that the Blue Jays swept Boston at Fenway Park this season.

The Jays are off tomorrow, but they will face Seattle for three games, starting Tuesday night.
