And down one to Seattle already, a team that has scored what, 11 runs in its last 9 games?

Hopefully that run is it and Jays don't act as slump busters.

Jays already back up 2-1.  Mariners got some pretty lucky hits in the 1st on some tough to hit pitches.

EDIT: Although Cecil isn't looking good in the 2nd either.

Three batters into the second and the Mariners are back up by 2.

Four runs in one plus innings. That is more runs than they have scored in any of their last nine games, and the same as they had scored in their previous five games total.

Ladies and gentlemen, your Toronto Blue Jays. :(

Meh.  I've never cared if a team slumping 'breaks out of it' against a team I like.  They are going to do so sometime, and it's going to be against someone's favourite team somewhere, so if it happens to be the Jays, so be it as long as Toronto comes back and wins.

What an ugly inning for Cecil.  Two HR's given up.

It seems to happen to the Jays a lot, though. Probably just my bias, but meh.

It really sucks to hear of a team doing that badly, then score more runs in an inning than they did for their last four games. :(

Cecil with 51 pitches through 2 innings. Good thing they had the day off yesterday to rest up the bullpen.

Edit: Cecil settled down after that and pitched 7 innings. Jays tied it in the 6th, but failed to bring in the winning run from 3rd in the bottom of the 9th. Now Frasor is pitching the 10th and has given up two singles (luckily separated by a double play :))

Davis now tied with Ellsbury for the lead in AL stolen bases. Man, if he could only get on base.

Nice win last night by the Jays. :)

The Mariner bats went cold for the last 12 innings, and that sure helped. :D

So apparently Encarnacion can't get out. Stole two bases, beat a tag up throw to second, and reached on an error leading to a 3 run hr.

Edit: now 3-4 with a solo bomb.
Edit: bah! Struck out. The dream is over.

Nice to hear McGowan is pitching in the minors and hitting 97 mph.

It would be really great to see McGowan back with the Jays after all he has been through.

I have heard people speculate that he could try out being a closer - it would probably be less strenuous on his arm, what with all the problems he has had.

Also, nice to see the Jays beat the snot out of a team that is struggling! :)
