Watch me pull a win outta my hatLots of notes in the at-bat boxes about batter approaches, pitching strategies, and shifts - how they were pitched and how the batter dealt with them.
Jays floated a line-up designed to hit a lefty - very weak at the bottom I thought. With Lind hot as a hot potato, I don't see the reason to create this weak right-lefty line-up unless Lind needed the day off as his injury continues to heal.
Jays almost pulled a win out of their hat* with some adroit PH-ing in the ninth - and a lot of mistakes on the field by the Sox - and one I thought, in the dugout by Chicago Manger Robin Ventura in the 8th (see Chicago 8th, batter #4).
With slugger phenom Jose Abreu coming up next the Chicagos hit and run - which leads to a stike out and a stolen base - the Jays immediately signal 4 balls for the slugger. Could have blown the game wide open if it hadn't gone down that way.
Don't know if it was a play from the dugout or not.
