Wow, that game took a turn for the worse very quickly. The Jays chances of winning bascially flew out the window once Jason Werth slammed one into the nosebleeds at the Rogers Centre...and it all went downhill from there.

While a ten run defecit is a tough one to overcome, it doesn't help when the Blue Jays can only string together five hits in total. Surprisingly, two of those hits came from John McDonald - that's when you know it's going to be a tough day at the office.

So, like a true trooper, the Blue Jays will put the worst behind them and attempt to salvage the series with a win in the rubber match today. Watch it all go down at The Score and join me while I liveblog this afternoon's matinee against the Phillies.
