College of Sports Media Game of the Night:
They rumbled last night in the Bronx as the Toronto Blue Jays took on the New York Yankees. Tempers flared in the eighth inning. Earlier in the game Blue Jays Edwin Encarnacion and Aaron Hill were plunked by Yankees pitchers. Jesse Carlson sent a message of his own when he threw behind New York catcher Jorge Posada. The benches empty, but nothing happened. Then a couple of batters later Posada scored on a Brett Gardiner single and nudged Carlson while crossing home. That set things off and the two players went at it and this time the both teams spilled on the field for good reason. Posada was ejected and Carlson had a welt on his head. The fight may have been a draw, but the Jays put the bats to the Yanks, blasting them 10-4. Toronto tied a season high with five home runs, two of which were launched by Travis Snider.
Round two, I mean game two goes tonight. Chad Gaudin (5-10) starts for New York, while Brain Tallet (7-9) gets the call for Toronto.
If you want to watch a game with playoff intentions you may want to check out Colorado Rockies in San Francisco to take on the Giants. San Fran took game one and two in convincing fashion and now only trail the Rockies by two and a half in the NL wild card race. Jorge De La Rosa (14-7) toes the mound for the Rox and San Fran counters with one of their aces Matt Cain (13-5).
