You know something’s in the air when both Vernon Wells and Alex Rios hit bombs. The bash brothers went to work tonight, hitting two of Toronto’s season-best five homers in a 10-6 win over the Mighty Indians of Cleveland. Aaron Hill also hit a solo shot and power hitting shortstop Marco Scutaro hit a pair of homers — a solo in fifth and a three-run blast an inning later.

Like fellow rookie Brett Cecil last night, Ricky Romero struggled with his command but got along fine until giving up a one-out, three-run homer to noted slugger Luis Valbuena in the sixth. In all, Romero lasted five-and-one-third, giving up six hits and four runs while walking five for the second straight start. Nevertheless, a win for the soon-to-be Rookie of the Year, running his record to 8-4.

The win evens the series at a game apiece, setting up a rubbermatch between rookie lefties Mark Rzepcynski and David Huff tomorrow afternoon.

    I fucking love Scoots.

    It wasn’t pretty, but Ricky got the win. It was good to see the offense say, “Hey, we got this, tonight, young fella.” They simply haven’t done it enough of late.

    I’m live-blogging the rubber match over at The Score’s website tomorrow. Lucky me, I get to type Rzepcynski all afternoon. Drop on by.
