Jays rally late

Robert Ray, en route to dominating the White Sox

Robert Ray, en route to dominating the White Sox

Fun fact: When the Chicago White Sox scored a first inning run against Robert Ray this afternoon, it was the first time they’d led the Jays at Rogers Centre since sometime in the summer of ’07 (I believe it was legendary Jays’ broadcaster Jamie Campbell delivering that tidbit, which I picked up while watching the game on my break today). Chicago’s lead held up until the eighth inning, when Adam Lind doubled home Vernon Wells and Jose Bautista singled home Lind. The end result — a 2-1 Jays win, their eigth in a row at home against the ChiSox.

Ray was remarkable in his third career start, going eight innings and giving up just three hits and the one run, which was unearned. Who needs an $82 million bum when you have Baby Burnett? Anyway, it was Ray’s first career win and one of the top performances by a Jays starter all year.

The Jays, of course, were winners last night as well, topping Chicago 8-3 behind another solid start from Brett Cecil. So, after dropping a pair to the hated Yankees, Toronto has bounced back with two wins against the White Sox and have Roy Halladay set to go tomorrow. Ah yes, life is good…
