Holliday's Stewart Pitches Well, No Decision in Blue Jays Loss

Holliday High School graduate Zach Stewart pitched six innings for Toronto in Monday night's makeup game in Detroit, allowing two runs for a quality start, but he did not record a decision in the Blue Jays' 4-2 loss to the Tigers.

For the second time in his three Major-League starts, Stewart pitched well enough to win, only to have the bullpen lose the game for him.

Stewart (0-1, 4.86) scatted nine hits over his six innings, striking out four and walking one.

He allowed two RBI hits to Detroit's Miguel Cabrera, a 2nd-inning double and a 3rd-inning single, to fall behind 2-0, but allowed no more as Toronto scored twice in the 4th on an RBI groundout by Jose Bautista and a solo home run by Adam Lind to tie things up.

Stewart left after six innings, having thrown 105 pitches, 64 of them for strikes.

Jason Frasor threw a scoreless 7th, but in the 8th inning Toronto reliever Marc Rzepczynski allowed a one-out single to Magglio Ordonez, then was relieved for Shawn Camp.

Camp then allowed a triple off the bat of Jhonny Peralta that just sliced away from right fielder Jose Bautista, which let pinch-runner Austin Jackson (of Denton Ryan) score the go-ahead run.

After an intentional walk to Alex Avila, Ryan Raburn beat out a double-play ball to bring in Peralta for the final margin.

Stewart's next scheduled start is Saturday at home against the Philadelphia Phillies.
