The Toronto Blue Jays continued their strong season so far today against the Cleveland Indians. The game was a sure lock after the seven-run, seventh inning by the Toronto Blue Jays, thanks to the bats of Scott Rolen, Aaron Hill, and Adam Lind. Brett Cecil made his major league debut for Toronto and pitched well, going six innings and giving up one earned run.

Cleveland went into the sixth inning with a 2-1 lead over Toronto. Toronto left the 6th inning withtwo runs, heading into the seventh inning with a 3-2 lead.

The seventh inning was when the game got wild, when Cleveland had a four-run top of the inning, followed by seven runs by the Jays in the bottom, which brought the score to 10-6 in favor of Toronto. Scott Downs came in and shut the game down for Toronto for his fourth save of the year.

It was a breakout game for Travis Snider, who has had a miserable stretch at the plate (3-for-31), but ended it today going 2-for-4. Cito Gaston has showed much patience with this young player and believes he has a strong future.

Toronto and Cleveland split the two-game series; the Blue Jays play in Los Angeles against the Angels tomorrow night.
