Big series for the Jays. Can potentially takeover a wildcard spot by winning 3 of 4.

I had to work and missed his debut but what a start for Price.

8.0 IP 3 hits 1 ER (HR) 11 K 2 BB

The crowd sounds incredible on the replays.

That and 42 year old Latroy Hawkins hit 96 MPH today in the 9th inning.

The Jays move into a virtual tie with the Twins for the 2nd wild-card spot but based on winning percentage are technically behind them.

I was at the game the crowd was amazing. They gave price a standing ovation during warm-ups before the game. And stood up for almost every 2 strike pitch.

Hawkins is honestly amazing. I'm shocked at the speeds he hits.

Anyway, it was my first game thus season and a few things have changed -  you can bring food and drinks in now as long as it isn't glass...that shocked me.

I loved the Donaldson roof report... I didn't know they did that

No... That's the dream though.

But my daughter got on the jumbotron with her goofy poster she made...so that's something I guess.

6th sellout of the season and already the Saturday and Sunday games later this month vs. the Yankees are sold out to make 8 (and counting)!

Since the glory days the Jays usually only sellout twice a season (Opening Day and Canada Day), so its fun to see the excitement returning for this team from the casual fans.

Wow, what more can you say about Donaldson at this point.

Bautista was pretty good just now too ;). Man that was a fun inning to watch.

But yes, hopefully Hutchinson doesn't screw it up anymore than he already has.

9-7

His numbers are hilarious. ERA of almost 5 and a half. Only charged with 2 losses, because the Jays score an average of 8 runs when he starts.
