Jays Sweep Away Rangers to Improve Home Record to 10-10

The Blue Jays took all three games against the Rangers this weekend.
It was a power show the first night as the two teams combined for 26 runs,25 hits, and 17 walks as the Jays took that one 16-10.
On Saturday Ricky Romero threw his first complete game shutout of his career to blank the Rangers 6-0 while racking up 12 strikeouts.
Today the offence struggled being out hit 9-3,but the Jays still won 5-2 thanks to John Bucks 3 run double in the bottom of the 4th. Brandon Morrow although not perfect was showing some signs of being able to be a regular in this Blue Jays rotation.
The 3RBI double by Buck in the bottom of the 4th,was reviewed by the umpires to make sure it was not a home run. Everybody on the field and in the stands thought it was a grand slam home run but the umpires on the field knew that it wasn't.After about 2 minutes the Umps came out of the first base dugout and ruled it a 3 run double.

First pitch goes tomorrow night at 7:07 Eastern. Dana Eveland (3-2,4.81) for the Jays,Kevin Slowey (4-3,4.62) for the Twins.
