C’mon Billy! The “Running of the Goats” was held Wednesday. Goats raced down a path in Riverside Park in Manhattan’s Upper West Side, where they will stay to munch on vines and other unwanted vegetation. No wagering, but betting sites will be humming for “Running of the GOATS 2.” Field includes Tom Brady, Tiger Woods, Michael Jordan, Wayne Gretzky, Michael Phelps, Usian Bolt, Joey Chestnut and Bartolo Colon. Thinking about a Bolt-Colon exacta.
Staying in Buffalo. Hyun Jin Ryu (8-5, ERA 3.56) throws for the Jays. We backed Ryu on July 1, and he rewarded our faith by allowing four runs in four frames to the Mariners. He rebounded on July 6, beating the lowly O’s, limiting them to one run over five. The Rangers’ Kolby Allard (2-6, ERA 3.69) gave up four runs over six to the A’s prior to the break. Sticking with the Blue Jays, 10 units.
Vlady Guerrero hit numbers 29 and 30, Robbie Ray pitched 6 ²/₃ innings of shutout ball and the Jays toasted Texas 10-2. Another win. Down -712 jaybuhners.
