Make that 6 in a row
With today’s narrow 4-3 over the Chicago White Sox, the Toronto Blue Jays made franchise history by winning their first 6 series to start the season. With some timely hitting by Scott Rolen in the top of the 8th inning, Roy Halladay pitched just long enough to pick up his 4th win of the season. Once again the wall of defense was on its game, as was the bullpen.
The Jays continue to dominate against AL Central teams, compiling a 10-4 record against them. This should bode well for Toronto as they head into Kansas City for a 4-game series.
While the Blue Jays sit perched atop the AL East for the 3rd straight week, the Boston Red Sox have put together a nice little 10 game winning streak to narrow the gap to a single game between the Sox and the Jays. The unfortunate thing about not having any divisional matchups against the Red Sox, Yankees or Rays this early on is that it’s very tough to gain any real ground on them.
But for the time being, I could get used to this winning 2 out of 3 games business. Congratulations boys, let’s keep the ball rolling!
