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.

The exchanging of the lineup cards with the umpires.

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.

Fans in a condo about 30 stories up across the street from the Dome.

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.

Dickey deals.

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!
