Toronto Blue Jays

A Collection of "O Faces"

Ian HunterCorrespondent IJuly 12, 2009

Some were happy, some were sad, but ultimately the O Faces that the Blue Jays had to watch were of the Orioles celebrating victory.

Their third loss in extra innings just this week alone was another tough pill to swallow even though Ricky Romero put together another quality start (for those who even count quality starts anymore).

Aside from Melvin Mora's walk-off home run, the thing I will remember most about this game was the rundowns on the basepaths. Mora was caught completely caught off guard and was picked off by Rod Barajas.

Then just a few innings later, Scott Rolen was also caught in a rundown but Matt Wieters dropped the ball. Then of course there was the rogue tag when Vernon Wells was supposedly "tagged" out on the way to second base.

It's hard to believe but tomorrow is the final game of the first half of the season. I'll be liveblogging the rubber match of this series over at The Score; it's Marc Rzepczynski going up against Brad Bergesen.

With a win, the Blue Jays can pull back to the .500 mark and end the first half with a 45-45 record. Yay for mediocrity!
