My favourite Blue Jay of all time and one of the most
exciting players the Blue Jays have seen in years.
While the Blue Jays were winning 11 in a row, the Bisons were losing 2 series in a row before the Bulls came to town. The Herd were able to take 3 of 4 and got back in the winning ways with a little help from a rehabbing superstar.
Game 1: W 3-2
Thad Weber got the start and was excellent for the 2nd outing in a row. He threw 6 innings and gave up 2 runs (1 earned) on 7 hits to get the win. Mickey Storey, Tommy Hottovy, and Brad Lincoln threw 3 shutout innings. Lincoln picked up his 2nd save.
On offense, the big hit was a 2-run double in the 5th to put them up 3-2 for good.
Jose Reyes was 1-4 with a double and a run scored.
Game 2: W 6-3
Mauro Gomez was the star of this one, going 2-3 with a walk. His 2 hits were his 20th and 21st HR of the season, which leads the league. He added 5 RBI.
Jose Reyes was 2-4 with 2 runs scored and a SB.
Chad Jenkins got the start and was really good. He threw 7 innings allowing 3 runs (1 earned) on 9 hits. John Stilson got the win with a shutout 8th and Joel Carreno got the save with a clean, 2 K 9th.
Game 3: W 1-0
The pitchers were great in this one, throwing 14 shutout innings. Todd Redmond (pictured) got the start and went 6 shutout innings with 3 hits. Dave Bush went 1.2 IP, Tommy Hottovy went 1 IP, Buddy Carlyle went 2.1 IP, Mickey Storey went 2 IP, and Joel Carreno went 1 IP and got the win.
The winning run scored on a throwing error off a bunt which allowed Mike Nickeas to score from 2nd base after a lead off double.
Jose Reyes went 2-5 and Ryan Goins did the same.
Mike Montgomery pitched 7 innings allowing just 1 run in his start against the Herd.
Jose Reyes managed to go 2-4 with the lone RBI.
Ricky Romero was awful again after a couple solid starts. He went 3.1 IP with 6 hits and 5 walks allowing 5 runs. John Stilson threw 2 clean innings after a bad relief outing for Claudio Vargas.
For the series, Jose Reyes was 7-17 with a double and a SB.
For the year against the Bulls, Mauro Gomez is now 6-32 with 3 walks, 5 HR, and 12 K. His 3-true-outcome is 20 of 35 if that's what he's shooting for.
