Lind hits 2 home runs in Blue Jays 11-2 win over Minnesota

That took too long but a win is a win. Four series win in a row for the first time this year. Happ is slow on the mound and he threw too many pitches but he got the win going 5.2 allowing 5 hits 1 unearned run 3 walks with 4 strikeouts. I'm really not a fan but he did a pretty good job against a pretty lousy team. We used 6 relievers you can tell it is September. Aaron Loup...

Here at More Hardball we love the minutiae of baseball and one of our favorite "stats" to track is pitchers carrying a 0.00 Earned Run Average.  At the beginning of the season, Mariners' rookie Lucas Luetge, carried that distinction into the middle June.  Now the final month and a half of the season is upon us and a new crop of pitchers are making their 2012 debuts...
