SEATTLE – The salvaging of a six-game swing on the west coast at 3-3 was good, and the party at Safeco Field with the thousands of Canucks who came down to get after it sure was fun. But perhaps the most heartening – and most important – development for the Toronto Blue Jays over the weekend was the way J.A. Happ pitched in Sunday’s 4-0 victory over the Seattle Mariners.
For the first time in three starts since coming back from the elbow injury he suffered April 16, the left-hander resembled the pitcher he was last year. He worked off four- and two-seam fastballs to induce weak contact and get swing-and-miss results over six shutout innings.
