Halladay Gets Better of Colon

(SN Report #506) - Carlos Lee went 3-4, Joe Borchard knocked out his first homer and Bartolo Colon went the distance, but it wasn't enough to pull off a win against Roy Halladay and the Toronto Blue Jays, losing 5-1.

Both pitchers were the only pitchers on the mound. Colon threw eight innings, giving up five runs on nine hits and two walks. Colon struck out six and threw 124 pitches. Halladay gave up just one run in nine innings, striking out seven.

The Blue Jays took a 1-0 lead in the second inning off an Orlando Hudson infield single at short, scoring Carlos Delgado, who doubled earlier in the inning and advanced to third on a wild pitch.

Borchard tied the game with a solo home run, his first of the season and third in his career, in the third, but the Sox couldn't do anything after that as the Blue Jays added two runs in the fifth, one in the sixth and another in the eighth.

With men on second and third and no outs, David Berg hit a grounder up the middle that was knocked down by D'Angelo Jimenez. Jimenez then recovered the ball and tried to throw out Josh Phelps at home, but Phelps slide under the tag of Miguel Olivo. Chris Woodward grounded into a double play, giving Toronto the 3-1 lead.

Magglio Ordonez, Jose Valentin and Joe Crede each went 1-4 in the game, while Armando Rios and Brian Daubach went 0-8 combined.

Game three will be played on Wednesday night at 6:05 CT and will be televised on Fox Sports Net Chicago. Jon Garland is scheduled to start against Kelvim Escobar.
