Towers Brilliant as Jays Shutout Baltimore
Cabrera started the eighth inning by walking both Eric Hinske and Gregg Zaun, and then got Alexis Rios grounding into a fielder's choice erasing Zaun at second but advancing Hinske to third on the play. Adams would then dribble home the lone run of the game.
Miguel Batista would work a perfect ninth inning for the Jays, recording his eighth save of the season.
The story tonight though was certainly Josh Towers, who came into tonight with a career record of 5-7 at Camden Yards, did not allow a runner passed first base and recorded his second shutout of his career.
The base paths were active tonight but the running game was shutdown as four runners (two from each team) were caught stealing.
The Toronto Blue Jays will look to shutdown the Orioles for a third game in a row and a series sweep. The Orioles lead in the American League East is now down to two games over the Jays, when the two teams lock horns on Wednesday night. Ace Roy Halladay (4-1) will get the ball for Toronto as he will go up against Erik Bedard (2-1) for the Orioles, who shutout the Jays thru seven innings last weekend.
The game on Wednesday can be seen on Rogers Sportsnet starting at 3pm EST as well as on The FAN 590AM.
