The Toronto Blue Jays finally have a pitcher to cheer for since the loss of Roy Halladay from the roster. Brandon Morrow had a no-no into the ninth inning against the Tampa Bay Rays and struck out 17 batters before giving up his only hit of the game to Evan Longoria, who was taken two picks ahead of him in the 2006 First-Year Player Draft.
