Nobody in Hollywood could have written Travis Snider's return any better.

He hit a home run in his first at bat back with the Blue Jays along with a single on the evening, Snider was 2 for 4 in his major league return and sent a big message to any doubters and naysayers.

Randy Ruiz hit his third home run in less than a week, making that eight hits in the span of just 25 at bats already. I have a feeling that Ruiz isn't going to let up any time soon.

What else can you say about that game?

The Blue Jays major league leading 22nd one-run loss of the season stung a little bit, but all was not lost. On any other night of the week, nine runs would be plenty to take down the competition, but Ricky Romero and Casey Janssen got kicked around a bit so the offense had to pick up the slack.

Overall, it was a great effort and the Blue Jays narrowly missed winning that game by a just a few feet on multiple occasions.

Maybe if the dome were closed, those fly balls from Adam Lind and Randy Ruiz could have cleared the fence.

Instead of dwelling on something in the past, we move on to tonight's matchup featuring former trade-bait candidates Roy Halladay and Clay Buchholz.

Run totals will most likely be down tonight, but when it's the Boston Red Sox you can never be quite sure what might happen.

Hell, they might even have a bald-headed man running at them.

I'll be liveblogging tonight's game over at The Score (link to come later) so come check it out and hopefully watch Doc win his 14th game tonight.
