Chacin Earns Win #4 As Jays Get Back to .500
While some believe it to be his stutter step within his delivery that keeps hitter off-balance, he's been able to utilize all of his pitches at anytime in the count and working both sides of the plate. He is extremely poised and zoned-in on the job he has to do as he prepares well before every start.
The Toronto Blue Jays got on the board in the second inning against Kazmir when Alexis Rios tripled to lead off the inning and was later brought home on a single to leftfield by John McDonald. They would score again in the fourth, as Reed Johnson doubled home McDonald and Huckaby for a 3-0 lead.
Tampa would finally get on the board off Chacin in the fifth when Alex Gonzalez singled home Jonny Gomes making it 3-1 for Toronto.
Toronto would put two more on the board in the seventh off reliever Seth McClung who came in for Kazmir, mainly because the young lefty had already thrown 107 pitches thru six innings. Rios would be at it again, hitting an RBI infield single to third base scoring Shea Hillenbrand. Orlando Hudson hit a sacrifice fly scoring Corey Koskie making it 6-1 Jays after seven innings.
Chacin would give up his second run in the top of eight, when Eduardo Perez lined one into centerfield scoring Aubrey Huff. That would chase Chacin from the game with Jason Frasor coming in to retire Jorge Cantu on a fielder's choice, ending the inning.
The Jays would add two more in the eight making it 8-2 before Scott Schoeneweis sat down the Devil Rays in the ninth.
Toronto will try for a series sweep on Thursday in an afternoon matinee at Rogers Center. Josh Towers (1-1) will get the ball for the home team, going up against Doug Waechter (0-0) for Tampa Bay.
Thursday's game will not be televised but can be heard on The FAN 590AM with a first pitch scheduled for 12:37pm EST.
