This is one crazy-ass Blue Jays blog! →

How did the Toronto Blue Jays do last night? Who performed and who didn’t? You can check the boxscores if you want to. Or, you can visit Jays STAT. With a quick glance, you know the score and you know who to praise or who to blame. Lens flares? Yeah, we got ‘em. Happy cat? Yeah, we got him too. Don’t forget the Angry Little Girl. If we see her less that 80 times this season, consider 2010 a success.

According to this boxscore, they decided to skip the 10th inning?

EPIC. BASEBALL.
Just look at that line score. The game lasted so long that the Mets logo had to posted above the two teams’ names. Crazy baseball.
Some fun facts:
It lasted nearly seven hours.
Scoreless for the first 19 innings, only four innings short of the record held by the (surprise!) Mets. That game was played on April 15th, 1968 and the Mets lost 1-0 to the Houston Astros.
A total of 19 pitchers used. Nine by the Mets and ten by the Cardinals. 
Although only eight of the Cardinals hurlers were actually pitchers. Shortstop Felipe Lopez threw a scoreless frame, and outfielder Joe Mather pitched two innings and gave up the two runs. 
A total of 652 pitches were thrown. (Assuming my math is correct.)
The Cardinals could have won it. Ryan Ludwick ground out with two men on to end it, leaving Albert Pujols on deck. Albert also had a game that he will probably never see again. 2-5 with 4 BBs.

No one hits like Gaston! Matches wits like Gaston! In a spitting match nobody spits like Gaston!


I am going to assume this is about Cito.
