The Toronto Blue Jays swept the Texas Rangers in four games this weekend. When I realized that the Jays completed the sweep on Sunday, I thought I was dreaming.
The Blue Jays hammered the Rangers in the second game of the series 8-0. Colby Rasmus went one for three at the plate, scored two runs, and racked up three RBIs. Starting pitcher Mark Buehrle pitched seven innings, gave up four hits, no earned runs, a walk, and struck out seven batters.
In the third game, Toronto won by a score of 6-1. R.A. Dickey gave up seven hits, an earned run, three walks, and struck out three batters in 5.2 innings pitched.
Unlike his first game with the Jays, pitcher Chien-Ming Wang was much better on the mound. Despite giving up seven hits in seven innings pitched, Wang didn’t allow an earned run. Wang also struck out five batters in a 7-2 Toronto win.
Blue Jay’s first baseman, Adam Lind went three for five at the plate and collected three RBIs during the game.
The Colorado Rockies was the Jays next opponent.
The Blue Jays shut out the Rockies in the first of a three game series 2-0. Maicer Izturis went two for three at the plate and collected two RBIs. Starting pitcher Josh Johnson had a great night on the mound, giving up five hits, no earned runs, two walks, and struck out 10 batters in 7.1. innings pitched.
Toronto won their seventh straight game the next night by hammering the Rockies 8-3. Edwin Encarnacion went two for four at the plate, racking up three RBIs. J.P. Arencibia went three for four at the plate and collected two RBIs. Starting pitcher Esmil Rogers gave up four hits, two earned runs, a walk, and struck out five batters in 6.2 innings pitched.
Toronto is hoping to win their eighth straight game tonight as Mark Buehrle takes to the mound for the Jays.
