Toronto lost their 2nd game in a row on Sunday against the LA Angels, 4-3. The LA win gives the Angels the series 2 games to 1. The Jays now look at a 31-28 record and sit in 3rd place in the AL East now 5 games behind the division leading Rays.
The Jays had the game in hand until the bottom of the 9th came and B.J. Ryan couldn’t hang on. Marco Scutaro had a solid game despite the loss going 1-for-4 with 1 RBI. The RBI is his 20th of the season and his batting average now stands at .272. Rod Barajas also chipped in with a RBI when he hit a solo-homer with 2 outs. The homer was his 5th of the season and his RBI count now sits at 17. Scott Rolen put up some good numbers as well going 3-for-4 bumping his batting average to .310.
A.J. Burnett nearly went the distance in the game pitching a gem. He work 8 inning allowing just 3 hits, 2 runs, all earned, 3 walks and 8 strike outs. When the 9th came B.J. Ryan entered the game looking to close it out. Unfortunately he had a little bit of difficulty going 2/3rd inning giving up 3 hits, 2 runs, a walk and the game. He received the blown save giving him 1 for the year and making his record 1-1.
The Jays couldn’t have asked for a better performance from their starter. The offense even had a solid game getting 10 hits. Too bad for us and the Blue Jays is that closer B.J. Ryan had a forgettable game and lost it in the 9th. Hopefully the team has a short-term memory and can get ready for their next series with the Yankees.
