Going into the mini-series against the Yankees, I thought that the Toronto Blue Jays would have rough go of it

Thankfully, I was wrong. 

The Blue Jays sure made up for that heart-breaking 4-3 loss against Tampa Bay on Tuesday by trouncing the New York Yankees 8-1 on Wednesday night.

“This was a good offensive night for us,” said Blue Jay’s manager, John Farrell in a press conference after the game.

J.P.  Arencibia, Edwin Encarnacion, Jose Bautista, and Kelly Johnson all hit home runs in the game.

As for Encarnacion, he has been swinging the hot bat lately.  He has already hit 13 round trippers this season.  This time last year, he had none. 

With all the scoring going on, I didn’t realized how good Jay’s pitcher, Kyle Drabek played on Wednesday night.

Drabek pitched seven innings, giving up only three hits, one earned run, four walks and striking out five batters.

“It was a solid effort on Kyle’s (Drabek) part,” said Farrell.

Earlier yesterday, the Blue Jays announced that they had sent first baseman, Adam Lind to Triple A Las Vegas and called up catcher, Yan Gomes, who is the first Brazilian-born player to suit up in the majors.

I was quite surprised to hear that Lind was sent down until I saw his stats from the last 10 games.  He’s (Lind) been batting a dismal 1.61, with five hits, two runs, and four RBIs in 31 at bats.   Not A very good showing as far as I’m concern.

 There wasn’t a lot of offense in last night’s game.

The Yankees opened the scoring at the top of the first inning when Robinson Cano doubled and drove in Curtis Grandson.   My first thoughts were “Oh Boy!  The Jay’s are in trouble tonight.”

Thankfully, in the bottom of third inning, Jose Bautista  hit a two run shot to give the Blue Jays a one run lead.  It was Bautista’s 10th home run of the season.

It stayed 2-1 for the Blue Jays until  J.P.Arencibia hit a two run homer to make it 4-1 and eventually the victory.

Starter, Drew Hutchison, gave up only five hits, one earned run, four walks, and struck out three batters in six innings pitched.

Toronto’s manager, John Farrell said in a post-game press conference that he was pleased with the bullpen in this game.

‘The bullpen came out and did an outstanding job,” said Farrell.

The Blue Jays open a three game home stand with the New York Mets tonight with Ricky Romero (4-1, 3.88 ERA) on the mound.  He will be going up against left-hander, Jon Niese (2-1, 3.60 ERA).
