More from Toronto Blue Jays Prospects

An early lead vanished as the Canadians implode for 3 runs in the last 2 innings.  Evan Smith pitched a solid 7 innings but he probably should have been taken out after the 7th inning.  After pitching 7 dominant innings Smith allowed a solo home run to Ryan Uhl to lead off the 8th.  This would start the rally and knocked Smith out of the game.  Bob Wheatley would replace him and the Canadians would proceed to allow 2 more runs in the 9th to doom themselves to the loss.

On offense the C’s only managed 5 hits but they were able to string 3 singles together in the 3rd.  The 3 singles along with some excellent base running allowed the C’s to grab a pair of runs.  This would be the end of the offensive showing unfortunately as the C’s just couldn’t keep it up.  Aqua Sox pitchers held them in check and also did not walk many batters.  7 total base runners is just not enough to put a big number up on the score board.

Line of the game
