A 27TH HOME RUN BY JOSE BAUTISTA HELPS THE BLUE JAYS AVOID A SWEEP
Mon, 04 Jul 2011 05:42 PM EDT

The great Cliff Lee’s seemingly unstoppable streak came to a grinding halt on the first July start. It was Jose Bautista who hit the leading 27th home run one of the players from the Toronto homers in a four run eighth as the Blue Jays snapped a scoreless inning streak at 34 with a great 7-4 win over the Phillies on Sunday in order to avoid the streak.

The manager for the Phillies Charlie Manuel said “(Lee) had a clean seventh inning,” “All of a sudden in the eighth inning, things kind of fell apart.”

It was Edwin Encarnacion got a two run shot as well as Eric Thames who also connected for his team in the eighth in order to chase Lee. Bautista said “For Eric to come out and start the inning like that was huge,” “I was able to follow up and Edwin’s blast just capped it off. It was a good feeling in the dugout and we all had high energy.”

The Blue Jays also managed to hit three homers in an inning on April 25 at Texas. Lee who wasn’t given the green to run a home run in the 49th also disputed Manuel’s assertion that the pitches he was throwing was in the pivotal eighth. NFL betting lines

He said “I felt like they were decent pitches but obviously that doesn’t matter,” “The result is what matters.”

The left-hander, who went 5-0 with an 0.21 ERA in five June starts, had not lost since May 31 at Washington and came in having pitched three consecutive shutouts.

Octavio Dotel pitched in the 1 2/3 innings for the win as well as Rajai Davis went from a 3 for 4 in three stolen bases for his team Toronto who had previously lost five of six. Lee managed to give up the season high of seven runs and earned six with 10 hits in the 7 1/3 innings. He also didn’t walk and struck out nine. Basketball odds

Lee said “I don’t really care about the month I had,”  “I care about today and giving the team a chance to win.”

Toronto was the one to score the run against Lee since back since June 11 when Davis managed to triple to lead off in the third and returned home on John McDonalds’ grounder to shortstop.
