Kids, don't try this at home. In the Toronto second, Baltimore pitcher Rick VandenHurk tried unnecessarily to reach behind his back and glove a chopper struck by Adam Lind. The ball deflected off his glove and Lind had himself a single. Had VandenHurk had the presence of mind to let the ball go, it likely would have resulted in a groundout to second base. … The Blue Jays' John McDonald got the start at shortstop in place of Yunel Escobar, who had started the previous 18 games in a row. It was a prudent move as McDonald drove in three of the Toronto runs. … Travis Snider had an embarrassing moment in the Toronto seventh after leading off with a single. Snider then attempted to steal second as Aaron Hill lifted a high fly ball to centre field that was caught by Adam Jones. Snider pulled up at second and had no idea where the ball was. By the time he had figured out it was in Jones's glove, it was too late and the Blue Jay was easily doubled off first.
