The Jays won last night in 11 innings and 27,119 fans were there hoping for Toronto to make it 2 in a row. Brandon Morrow was on the mound with a 9-6 record this season, and in one game came an out away from a no hitter. He faced a pitcher making only their 2nd start of the year.
Our seats were great. I got them from someone at work and were just 4 rows above the Jays' dugout. They were so close Teena said she could see Cito's scowl as he came off the field after arguing with the umpire about a close play at the plate.
The game had everything. A great catch by third baseman Brandon Inge of Detroit. A triple by home run hitter Jose Bautista, and a shot that missed by just a foot before bouncing off the wall dead centre 400 feet out. There were two close plays at the plate and, in the ninth, the Jays let a 5-1 score become a 5-4 comeback for the Tigers before Gregg got the last out.
Teena and I had a great time and are looking forward to seeing Seattle in those same seats on a cool September Thursday night.
With 42 home runs this year, Jose Bautista had a triple and double today.
