Jays Sweep Orioles as Romero Goes Complete

Ricky Romero threw a spectacular game while getting some help on the offensive side.The Blue Jays hit there 51st,52nd, and 53rd home runs of May as they cruised past the O's in Toronto.The Home Plate Umpire was horrible as his strike zone began at least half a foot below the knee. Jose Bautista and Alex Gonzalez went back to back with home runs in the same direction. Bautista still leads the MLB in Home Runs and tied a career high in home runs in one season today.Although Bautista will most likely not be here again next year it is nice to see him contributing to the line up.

Brian Tallet will be called up on Tuesday to make the start at home against the Rays. Tallet is getting close to his 30 day limit of rehabilitation in the minor leagues so he was a front runner to be called up. He will be making the start in place of Dana Eveland who was designated for assignment last week. I think Tallet will be sent down once more on Wednesday as that is the Jays last time they need a number 5 starter in June because they have 4 off-days. My guess is that David Purcey will be sent to Las Vegas on Tuesday to make room for Tallet.

First Pitch tomorrow at 7:07 EDT
