Marcum, Snider Power Jays to 3-2 Victory Over Streaking Red Sox
Shaun Marcum pitched seven stellar innings and Travis Snider had all three Blue Jay RBI's as the Jays defeated Boston. Adam Lind was given a much needed day off as Randy Ruiz got to start at Designated Hitter. Aaron Hill was scratched from the line up right before the game, due to right hamstring soreness, the same injury that put him on the 15 day DL earlier in the season. Vernon Wells went 0-4 for the 3rd straight game and Kevin Gregg got his American League leading 10th save of the season. Tim Wakefield threw 102 pitches while getting his second loss of the season to move his record to 0-2. Once again the 2 through 5 hitters struggled while getting 2 hits in this important win for the Blue Jays. J.D Drew and Adrian Beltre both had one RBI in the 9th inning against Jays Closer Kevin Gregg.
