The Toronto Blue Jays Historic Weekend

You might not have noticed, but the Toronto Blue Jays achieved two incredible feats during Saturday and Sunday’s games against the Tampa Bay Rays. On Saturday, the Blue Jays bashed 8 home runs, including two from J.P. Arencibia in his first major league game. It was only the twentieth time in major league history that a team has hit at least 8 home runs in a single game. As if that wasn’t enough, Brandon Morrow had, arguably, the best performance by a major league pitcher this year earlier today by throwing a complete game, one hitter (which came with two outs in the ninth when a grounder deflected off the glove of Aaron Hill that seemed a little out of reach), with two walks and seventeen strikeouts. Incredible. That is in Nolan Ryan and Randy Johnson territory.

This is an example of one of many reasons why baseball is an incredible game.
