Off night for Halladay
It does not happen very often, but Roy Halladay had an off night. That aside I think the real turning point in this one was in the 8th, bases loaded 1 out, and Barajas lined out to third. A fly ball would have scored the tying run, so I hate to put this one on Barajas but he just didn't get it done. I have to tip my hat to the rangers closer Frank Francisco who shut this one down and looked good after allowing a base hit and a walk. The Jays were 2 for 10 with runners in scoring position, in a 1 run game, so Doc wasn't as sharp as usual but he pitched 8 innings and I really have a hard time pinning this one on him.
