Jays drop two in Detroit


David Purcey returned for the Jays tonight. Unfortunately, his command didn't.

David Purcey returned for the Jays tonight. Unfortunately, his command didn't.

While I was busy watching football and forgetting the Jays existed the past two days, they managed to drop a pair of games in Detroit to settle for a split of their four-game set at Comerica. Ricky Romero’s late-season implosion continued in a 7-2 loss yesterday and Jason Frasor blew a 5-2 ninth inning lead in a 6-5 loss in 10 tonight.

Adam Lind hit a three-run homer in a five-run sixth in tonight’s loss, upping his RBI total to 100 on his 29th blast of the year. David Purcey returned from exile to toss five-and-two-thirds, giving up five hits, two runs and — surpsrise, surprise — four walks. No shocker there.

As for Romero, it’s getting tough to see him get lit late in the season. Yesterday’s ten-hit, four-run outing bumped his ERA to 4.22 and dropped his record to 12-8, all but eliminating him from the Rookie of the Year picture. At 154 innings, it might be time to go the Brett Cecil and Marc Rzepczynski route and shut the kid down. All in all, a fine rookie year.
