Happ stifles Rangers

In Toronto, Jay Happ won his second straight start for the Blue Jays, holding the hard hitting Rangers to just 1 run on 2 hits and 1 walk, striking out 8 over 6 solid innings in a 3-2 Jays' win..  At one point, Jay (9-10) struck out 6 straight Texas batters, equaling a Blue Jays franchise mark.  Anthony Gose had a 5th inning triple and scored what proved top be the deciding run.  He was also hit by a pitch and stole his 9th base for Toronto.

The victory for Happ was #52 for the HomeSide this year in the major leagues.

In Atlanta, the Braves walked off against the Dodgers in the 11th inning, 4-3. Michael Bourn (.293) had 2 hits, a sacrifice, and a walk, and stole his National League leading 32nd base for Atlanta...........In Oakland, Jason Donald was 1 for 4 and scored a run, and Lou Marson was 0 for 3 for the Indians in their 6-4 loss to the Athletics.........In Milwaukee, the Brewers beat Vance Worley and the Phillies, 6-2.  Worley's funk continues, he lasted just 4.2 innings, charged with 4 runs on 7 hits and 3 walks, slipping to 6-8 for the year.  BJ Rosenberg came on and recorded 4 outs, allowing a 2-run bomb by Ryan Braun in the 6th.  Ryan Howard had an RBI double, and Domonic Brown was 1 for 4, but Brown missed a fly ball in the 4th inning that was ruled a triple that should have been caught, and opened the door for a 4-run rally by Milwaukee.
