D-backs Double Trouble for the Jays

May 22, 2010 by  

The Toronto Blue Jays faced the Arizona Diamondbacks for the second game of the three game series. One day after the D-backs successfully defeated the American League team, they went head-to-head with the Blue Jays once again. With Edwin Jackson on the mound for Arizona, the Diamondbacks would drive in plenty of runs early on to give them the lead.

Four runs were scored by the team in the bottom of the first inning and another four were scored in the bottom of the second as Toronto was only able to put one run on the board. The D-backs would benefit from doubles by Jackson, Johnson, Reynolds and Young. Chris Young alone would drive in four of the runs for the team. Edwin Jackson would strike out nine in the game as he would pitch seven and two-thirds innings of baseball.

In Jackson’s final two-thirds innings, he would have a tough time as the Jays looked to stage a comeback. After hitting four more runs off of the pitcher he was removed from the game and the relief staff would take over. The relief was able to hold Toronto to no more runs as the D-backs were able to hang on to win the game and take a two to nothing series lead against the third-place Blue Jays.
