Blue Jays Series Recap – Jays Take 2/3 From A’s

The Blue Jays took two out of three games against one of the hotter teams in all of baseball but outside of improving their run differential (by 4 runs) they failed to make up a single game in the AL East or the wild card race.  Still it was nice to see the team play the Oakland A’s so tough and they really looked liked the superior team in most aspects and they will hope to continue this strong play against the Los Angeles Angels.

The Angels have lost six games in a row and are 2-8 in their last ten games.  They recently lost Albert Pujols and if the Blue Jays have any hope of a late season surge I don’t think a four game sweep is asking for too much.  This is a time the Jays just have to go for the jugular.

CURRENT RECORD: 50-57, 5th place, 14.0 games out of first place, 9.0 games out of wild card (-20 run differential)
