Box Score: Blue Jays 3, Indians 0

The Indians faltered again today in a rubber match against the Blue Jays. Toronto scored three times against Derek Lowe in the third, and that was all the offense for the day.

The bats were miserable again today, with the team mustering just five hits and five walks total. Yet again, there were several wasted opportunities and some truly awful at-bats by the bottom of the lineup.

Cleveland now goes off to Tampa Bay for four games this week before returning home Friday to take on Baltimore. Hooray for lots of doses of the AL East right after the All-Star Break.
