Blue Jays Series Recap – Outclassed By The Nationals

The Washington Nationals showed the Toronto Blue Jays they have a ways to go in their march to becoming a bonafide contender, sweeping the Jays without much resistance.  Though none of the game scores scream blowout the truth of the matter is the Jays were soundly beaten in each game.

Edwin Jackson, Chien-Ming Wang and phenom Stephen Strasburg put on a clinic and held the Jays bats in check.  Strasburg flashed three plus pitches this afternoon and struck out 8 batters over 6 innings, picking up the win to improve to 8-1 on the year.

Making the rounds on the net and trending on TWITTER is the “clown question” asked to Bryce Harper.  To quickly sum it up, he was asked by a Toronto reported if he intends to take advantage of the legal drinking age in Canada (19) though Harper is a devout Mormon and didn’t appreciate the question apparently!

The Blue Jays are scuffling, losers of their last three games and 4-6 in the past ten games.

RECORD: 31-32, 4th place, 6 games back of first place.

Here are the quick recaps and boxscores:

Game 1- Nationals 6, Blue Jays 3 – Edwin Jackson solid, Bryce Harper with three hits.

Game 2 – Nationals 4, Blue Jays 2 – Bryce Harper leaves impression, hits massive homerun.

Game 3 – Nationals 6, Blue Jays 2 – Strasburg strikes out eight in six dominating innings.

UP NEXT: Off day Thursday June 14, 2012 followed by a three game set at home versus the Philadelphia Phillies (29-34) sans Roy Halladay.
