Toronto Blue Jays Notes, Quotes 2009-05-15
--INF John McDonald got his first start of the season in Thursday's game, in the 36th game. He started at second base in place of Aaron Hill, who fouled a ball of his shin in Wednesday's loss. Hill, one of the hottest hitters on the club, was in the lineup as the designated hitter.

--2B Aaron Hill went 0-for-4 Thursday to mark the first time all season he has been held hitless in consecutive games. Hill was 0-for-2 in Wednesday's loss.

--RHP Roy Halladay's complete game Tuesday was his first of the season, the 41st of his career and 36th since 2003, most in the major leagues. In fact, the 36 complete games over that time frame is more than the total of 21 major league clubs.

--Halladay has gone at least seven innings in each of his eight starts this season and has gone eight or more innings four times. Tuesday's complete game was the fifth of his career against the Yankees and the 41st of his career overall.

BY THE NUMBERS: 204 -- The Blue Jays' run total through 34 games, making them the first team in the majors to the 200-run mark.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "We do have to make some decisions. If he continues to pitch like that, there's no reason to take him out of the rotation. He was able to get through the seventh inning and looked like he was still strong. He comes to pitch." -- Toronto manager Cito Gaston, after Brian Tallet made his second consecutive strong start, beating the A's in Oakland.
