Roy Halladay, RH Adam Loewen, LH (7-1, 2.81) (0-0, 7.45)
Game time is 7:05 on CSN and RSN.
If we can manage a split of this series with this pitching matchup, count your blessings. Loewen didn't embarrass himself against the Yankees on June 3, but Halladay is one of the best pitchers in baseball. Loewen has thrown 9 2/3 innings this season and walked seven. In 80 innings, Halladay has walked 10 people. He walked 18 in 141 2/3 last year.
It's no fun to go into a game knowing you'll probably lose just because of the pitchers, but really, what can I do here? I love to rally the troops and all, but it's Adam Loewen against Roy Halladay. Then again, Loewen is Canadian, and might have his family watching on TV up in the tundra, so perhaps -- perhaps -- Adam Loewen is going to be extra psyched. Also the Jays have not seen him before. Oh my -- oh my God. Adam Loewen is going to mow down the Blue Jays. We're gonna win.
