  • Ellsbury doubles, Gardner and Beltran with singles to bring Ellsbury across. Fun stuff.

  • McCann moves Gardner to third with a deep fly to right center, and Teixeira beats the shift to score Gardner. Two runs and Dustin McGowan is still in trouble.

  • Kelly Johnson protecting the outside corner after a couple of edge pitches, takes the seventh pitch the at bat to right field for a single to load the bases for Ichiro. Nice at bat.

  • McGowan finally gets out of it. Surprised the Yankees only got two runs out all of that. 30 pitches!

  • Encarnacion down swinging. So homer, ground out, backwards K, swinging K for Tanaka’s first inning in the bigs.

  • Tuned in to a 3-2 Blue Jays lead already in the 2nd just in time to catch two Tanaka K’s and a reply-extended top half of the 3rd lead to Solarte’s 2-RBI double. Nice. OK, it’s almost 3am here now. Good night krueg!

  • Good win.

    Tanaka-san was solid. He really settled in as the game went along. He got stronger. Which was nice to see.

    Solarte is a golden god.

    Tex got hurt again. Left early. Hammy. He might be a lost cause at this point.

    .500 feels good.

  • PS Jacoby Ellsbury is the shit. This guy does it all as we know from the when we was on the other side…people were mad about his signing and I never understood why? He is an MVP-caliber guy. Diving catch, stolen base, 3 hits…does it all.

    Love the guy and the wife does too already. For different reasons I think but still…

  • PSS DRob is 2-for-2. No problems. Looks comfortable. I guess we will just have to get used to “Sweet Home Alabama” instead of “Enter Sandman” for the next decade…I hope.
