Several rockets hit off Matt Clement in the second inning -- when Toronto scored five times -- and two miscues from E6dar Renteria mean the Sox are now 2-1 when I see them at Skydome.
The atmosphere was further ruined by a party coordinator type-guy pumping up the crowd and giving away t-shirts and gift certificates between innings, like you'd expect at a minor league park. No spin-your-forehead-on-a-bat-and-try-to-walk-a-straight-line though, unfortunately. I can't recall if they did this kind of crap the other times I was there.
Keith Foulke also had a rough inning, facing eight Jays in the seventh, walking two and allowing a hit and run. Chad Harville mopped up.
Who the hell is Scott Downs?
Papi hit his 41st tater of the season, a solo shot to right center. He also singled and walked, and has reached base eight times in the last two games.
Kevin Millar doubled and hit a sac fly, but he also looked (yet again (or still)) like ass in the outfield. Man, we need some outfield depth -- stat. (Good news on Damon's MRI.)
Roberto Petagine got his one AB of the week, struck out, and had Tito wondering why this guy is so rusty.
The Yankees routed Tampa 17-3 and are 2.5 games oot. They trail Cleveland by one game for the wild card.
Wells / Towers at 7:00.
