Jays Rock Santana, Towers Wins Fourth Straight
Santana would settle down after that, shutting down the Jays for the next three innings. On the other side of the ball, Josh Towers blanked the Twins thru the opening three frames, but started to falter a bit in the fourth when, with a man already on, Torii Hunter took Towers deep out of the yard to left, cutting the lead to 3-2.
Toronto would push further ahead off Santana in the fifth when Ken Huckaby earned a hard fought walk, and was advanced to third on a Johnson double. Hillenbrand would bring them both home on a single to center, making it 5-2.
Minnesota would load the bases in the fifth against Towers, but were unable to push the tying run across, getting out of the inning. That would be the end for Towers, going five innings, giving up two runs on seven hits.
The Blue Jays weren't done with Santana yet, as they would get two more runs in the sixth thanks to an Orlando Hudson two-run home run. That would be Johan's last batter, being relieved by Jesse Crain. Santana would go 5 and 1/3 innings, giving up 7 Runs, all earned, on 9 Hits.
The Twins would get one more run in the game, courtesy of a Justin Morneau solo-shot in the sixth off of Vinnie Chulk, but the Jays would score once in the seventh and twice more in the ninth to trounce Minnesota 10-3.
The two teams will continue their three-game set tomorrow, when Kyle Lohse (2-2) goes up against Toronto righty David Bush (0-3).
The game tomorrow can be seen on TSN starting at 8pm EST as well as on The FAN 590am.
