I  my last article, I commented on how well Munenori Kawasaki has played since coming in to filled the void left by Jose Reyes as he recovers from his ankle injury.  Apparently, he has now become a favorite among Toronto Blue Jays fans. Imagine that. John Gibbons As for the Blue Jays themselves, it was another disappointing weekend for them as they lost two out of three games to the New York Yankees.  ”We got to play better baseball, ” said Jay’s manager, John Gibbons in the post game press conference after losing 5-3 in the 11th inning.  No argument here.  The Jays have got to get a winning streak going if they want to play in October. Despite his reservations about ball club, Gibbons feels that they are  not out of it, yet. In game one of the series, the Jays lost 9-4.  Jay’s starting  pitcher, Brandon Morrow, didn’t have a good night on the mound.  He gave up nine hits, five earned runs, one walk, and only struck out four batters in 5.1 innings pitched. Despite losing the second game by two runs, Mark Buehrle had a good quality start for the Jays that night.  In seven innings pitched, he gave up eight hits, three earned runs, one walk, and struck out seven batters.  Not bad.  Unfortunately, the bullpen let the Jays down again.  That has always been a huge problem for Jays in recent years.  You never know what the relievers are going to do.  One day, they’ll be brilliant, and then the next day they’ll screw up. The third game was probably the most exiting game in the series.  Going into the seventh inning, the Jays were down 4-2.  They scored four unanswered runs and took a 6-4 lead.   They added two more runs and won the game 8-4. The Jays are  in Baltimore for a three game series with the Orioles.
