TORONTO, Ont. – George Steinbrenner can rest easy tonight as his high priced New York Yankees rolled…
Young and Drese Too Much For Jays
Most of the damage from Texas though, came off the bat of former Blue Jays farmhand Michael Young, who doubled in Alfonso Soriano in the first, and homered off of Toronto starter Ted Lilly in the third, driving in the first three Rangers runs. Mark Teixeira hit a solo home run off Brandon League in the eight to put the game out of reach at 4-2.
Lilly, making his second start of the season, looked rusty, struggling with his control, walking four batters in his five innings of work. League, then came in to pitch the remaining three innings for Toronto.
Toronto, who has seen their offense struggle to score runs the past couple of games, got on the board in the second inning when Greg Myers scored Corey Koskie on a groundout to second base. Frank Catalanotto provided the other Blue Jays run with his first home run of the season in the third inning.
The Blue Jays will have to find a way to create more runs on Saturday with veteran lefty, Kenny Rogers (0-0), taking to the hill for Texas, going up against Gustavo Chacin (2-0) for Toronto.
The game can be seen on Rogers Sportsnet starting at 8pm EST, and on The Fan 590AM.
