Padres Win to Earn Split with Toronto

Padres Take Game Two 5-4 to Split the Series with the Blue Jays

August 7 – San Diego

The San Diego Padres scored five times in the third off the Blue Jays Doyle Alexander and held on to outlast the Blue Jays 5-4. Alexander drops to 9-10 after scattering eight singles in his 3+ innings of work before being chased in that wild third inning.

The Padres singled six times and walked twice leaving the bases loaded after scoring five runs in the third.

Andy Ashby lasted only three and two-thirds innings before running out of steam. Craig Lefferts came in and held the Blue Jays hitless in two and a third innings to pick up the win and even his record at 4-4.

I would have liked to give the MVP awards to the bullpens. After Alexander gave up the five runs to the Padres, Aaron Loup and Roy Lee Jackson combined for five perfect innings; three by Loup and two by Jackson. The Padres went to the bullpen and Lefferts (two and one-third innings pitched), Scott Linebrink (two innings pitched), and Heath Bell (one inning pitched) only gave up one hit combined.

Neither starting pitcher survived the fourth inning, but the relievers for both teams were amazing.

The Padres stay home to take on the Braves tomorrow while the Blue Jays enjoy a day off before taking on the Chicago White Sox at home.
