If you blinked...

...you missed the first run of the game.

Toronto leadoff hitter Fred Lewis swung at the first pitch from Jeremy Guthrie, a fastball, and drove it 405 feet over the center field fence to give the Blue Jays a quick 1-0 lead.

Adam Jones made a nice leaping attempt, but couldn’t bring down the ball.

Lewis has hit four leadoff homers this year, and five in his career.

Guthrie has allowed 16 homers this season, including one in each of his last four starts.

The Blue Jays added a two-out double and walk in the first. I expected Jones to be charged with an error on Vernon Wells’ hit, since the ball bounced in front of him, deflected off his glove and rolled into left-center field, but the official scorer gave Wells a double.

That decision might change a few minutes after I send this entry.
