Blue Jays Win 10th Straight Game and Take First Place
44,597 fans, including Teena and I, were at tonight's Toronto Blue Jays - Oakland A's game. A win combined with a New York Yankees' loss would mean the Jays' would take over first place.

A full house.
The walk up music for the Blue Jays. Looks like Jay-Z (Canadian pronunciation "Jay Zed") wins out with two tunes.
R.A. Dickey deals the first pitch.
Former Blue Jay Brett Lawrie received a nice applause before the game but once it was game on, the tone was different. He was the enemy and fans cheered every out.

A Josh Donaldson hit. In the second inning, the Jays had seven men cross the plate. With a 10 - 2 lead, every one in the stadium could relax.
Jays Force was up in our section.
A Colabello hit.
Later he fouls one off.
A Bautista double.
The last pitch of the game. A strikeout!
The Jays wins 10-3. The Yankees lose 2-1. Guess what. JAYS ARE IN FIRST.
So much fun. The next 6 weeks of the pennant race is going to be a whole lot of fun!
