Running With The Bulls

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.

Game 4:

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.
