El Duque rocking

It’s great to see El Duque rocking. Today he had his best start since returning. 3 starts so far – but in the first two he went 2-0 where he got a no decision today. He went 7 strong, allowing just 4 hits and striking out 10.

The Blue Jays pitching was also fantastic, though, and both teams were scoreless up until the bottom of the ninth with two outs when Ruben sends one deep.

The only previous 1-0 win on a game-ending homer for New York was accomplished by Joe Pepitone with leadoff shot in the ninth against the California Angels’ Hoyt Wilhelm on May 18, 1969, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. In addition, Tommy Henrich did it against Brooklyn’s Don Newcombe leading off the ninth inning of the 1949 World Series opener.
