Yahoo! Sports: MLB - Toronto at Seattle Game Recap
July 28, 2000
SEATTLE (TICKER) -- Playing without injured right fielder Raul Mondesi and faced with a 17-minute power outage at Safeco Field, the Toronto Blue Jays still had plenty of juice left to defeat the Seattle Mariners.
Pinch-hitter Todd Greene singled in two runs during a five-run seventh inning and Esteban Loaiza tossed seven strong innings as the Blue Jays snapped an eight-game drought against the Mariners with a 7-2 victory.
A computer malfunction resulted in the delay in the bottom of the third inning but the Blue Jays supplied sufficient power with a 16-hit attack. They more than made up for the absence of Mondesi, who was placed on the 15-day disabled list with an injured right elbow prior to the game.
It was the second delay in the past week for the Mariners, who sat through a 54-minute rain delay Saturday when the retractable roof atop Safeco Field failed to close.
