Jays Take Two of Three From the Giants,Get Bad News on the Injury Front

The Blue Jays won the first two games in the San Fransisco series with ease,but there bullpen faltered to giveaway the third one.Brian Tallet surrendered the lead, while giving up five runs in the decisive 6th inning.The Jays defence also did its part in handing this to the Giants as they committed two errors;one by defensive liability Edwin Encarnacion, and the other by Fred Lewis.It was Lewis's first error this season, because he can get to balls in the outfield with all of his speed.

Last Tuesday John McDonald lost his father Jack, and was on the bereavement list until Sundays game.It was only fitting that his first at bat came on Sunday June 20th; Fathers Day.On a 0-1 curveball Johnny Mac hit a towering 2 run home run in memory of his father. After every teammate gave McDonald high fives,he sat down and started crying in his sleeve. It was McDonald's first home run his season and it was definitely one to remember.

3B Edwin Encarnacion was designated for assignment on Sunday with 2B Jarrett Hoffpauir getting called up to "The Show".I like this move because Encarnacion was struggling with the bat and Jarrett is doing the complete opposite.Hoffpauir is batting .328 and has hit for the cycle twice this season,something that happens in MILB rarely.

Today SP Dustin McGowan is undergoing another surgical procedure done by Dr.James Andrews in Alabama. McGowan in my opinion will never make another big league start in his career.

Remember to vote for the Jays in the all star game as there are only 9 days remaining to do so.
