Is this really happening? Broadcasters and writers referring to Fake as "clutch"? After last night, it is hard to argue as DCB's favorite whipping boy delivers in a big 6 run 7th inning as the Local Nine take care of "Doc" Halladay and the Jays 6-1. Casey, with the bases loaded in a 1 -0 deficit, bangs one off the wall and the Tribe never looked back. Another big hit delivered in a PH role by Benny Francisco. This dude is dinero en el banco (money in the bank) as he takes a Jeremy Accardo (Accardooooh how are youuuuu) pitch and smokes it to the wall in left scoring two. What an inning and what a much needed explosion!
CC Sabathia looks like he is back. The big man strikes out 9 in 7 innings for his second win. “We’ve been struggling to score for C.C. and to be able to do it feels good,” said Fake, a .228 career hitter with runners in scoring position who is batting .429 (15-for-35) with all but one of his 24 RBIs this season coming in that situation.
Even Pronk showed up with 2 hits and reaching base three times. Toronto deserved to lose after optioning down DCB favorite Joe Inglett to AAA before the game. How dare they.
