It became quite the home run derby for the Toronto Blue Jays as they squared off against the Minnesota Twins in game three of their series. The Wolfond Centre Hillel branch at University of Toronto got organized earlier in the week and brought out nearly 30 of its members to the Rogers Centre for this amazing game.
The Jays' Fred Lewis got the crowd cheering early, as he cranked one over the wall in the bottom of the first inning to lead off the game 1-0.
Then, in the bottom of the second inning, the Jays found their stride as Adam Lind drove the ball into deep right field and with bases loaded, Alex Gonzalez put a double in right-centre that scored three runs putting the home team well in front at 5-0. Everyone gasped when the Jays gave up the shutout allowing the Twins one run. Thankfully, the fans could all cheer loudly again as two more home runs were knocked in following the seventh inning stretch and a final run in the eighth put them well in the safe zone, making it a solid 8-1 victory.
Hillel picked quite the night where everyone greatly enjoyed an open dome smashing game.
