More from Toronto Blue Jays News

Solid pitching and a ton of offense will win you many games and was the case Tuesday for the Lugnuts.  The Lugs pitching staff was able to keep the Hot Rods to 3 runs even with the defense committing 4 errors.  Starlyn Suriel pitched 6 innings of shut out ball to allow the offense to outburst.  The stellar performance lead to the win that put the Lugnuts into first place.

The offense just pounded the ball all night and had a huge surge from the 6th inning on.  The team compiled 17 hits which included 4 home runs.  Jason Leblebijian collected 2 of those home runs and went 3-5 for the night with 3 RBI.  Richard Urena hit his 11th home run with a runner on in the 6th.  Chris Carlson also hit a homer and went 4-5 with a double, 3 runs scored, and 2 RBI.  Not to be out done Anthony Alford tied his career high with 4 hits in the game and was only a homer away from the cycle.  He also collected 2 RBI’s.  The offense is looking good as the now first place Lugnuts look to keep rocking during their home stand.
