4:33: Blue Jays are leading 4-3 in the bottom of the ninth, and the biggest news is that Vernon Wells went 3-4, with a HR and 3 RBI.  The Blue Jays need him to play like the superstar the they signed to a $126 million extension in 2006, and for today, he did.  Last year, he only had 15 HR in 630 PA, with a .260 average.  He's still only 31, so an MVP-type comback isn't out of the question.  He's batting 4th with Aaron Hill and Adam Lind in front of him, so there should be plenty of RBI opportunities.

6:05: Well, it didn't work out so well for the Blue Jays: they lost 5-4 after Jason Frasor gave up 2 runs in the ninth. Nevertheless, Adam Lind and Vernon Wells went 6-7 with 2 HR and 4 RBI, and Shaun Marcum pitched reasonably well, so it wasn't all bad.

6:15: I guess the Braves know what they're doing.  Jason Heyward hit a 3-run home run in his first major league at-bat.  It's going to be tough for some pitchers on the Cubs to look at their ERA for at least a few weeks: Carlos Zambrano: 54.00, Jeff Samardzija: 108.00.
