- Mark Buehrle’s line: 5.1IP, 7H, 2HR, 6ER, 1BB, 4K.
- Home runs from Bautista, Encarnacion, Rasmus, and two from Arencibia were all no-doubters.
- Jose Reyes scored 3 runs and you love him.
- The 9th and 10th Jays runs of the game, which proved to be incredibly important, were the only two runs not driven in by homers and were both products of Bonifacio and Reyes scoring from 2nd as plays were made at first. Reyes ran through a stop sign from 3rd base coach Luis Rivera, who must have forgotten he was dealing with Jose Reyes because he scored standing up without even a hint of a throw.
- Bonifacio’s run was particularly impressive after he used that same speed and heads up running to stretch a simple hit into centre into a sliding double.
- The Jays drew 6 walks.
- You’re right to hate Brett Myers.
- Adam Lind has opened the season 0-for-12
- Casey Janssen cruised in the 9th, striking out 2.
The Jays open up a series with the Red Sox tonight, Felix Dubront vs Josh Johnson. You should go to the game and boo John Farrell.
