Good Pitching Prevails Even If It's Not Pretty

With Dana Eveland doing his best Brian Tallet imitation with his baggy uniform may have looked like an unmade bed but he was effective as Jays defeated the Orioles 3-0 today. Except for a shaky 4th when he gave up a walk and a hit to start the inning, he was never in trouble and appeared to get stronger as the game went on. Until giving up a hit to his final batter, he had retired 9 of 10 and might have gone longer but had thrown 94 pitches. Given the strength of our pen, it was time to turn it over. Downs came in to throw 2 pitches inducing an inning ending double play. Jason Frasor made it interesting yet again giving up a walk and single with one out, but got a strikeout and popout to end the game.

Jays spread the hitting throughout the lineup again with Lind, Ecnarnacion, Molina, and Gonzalez each recording 2 hits. This game was a matter of getting the runs when it mattered with a couple of timely hits with runners in scoring position and a bases loaded hit batsman. A 4-1 record works whatever the formula.
