Just a few miles south of the Dallas area, Texans were running for their storm cellars again Tuesday as another round of tornado warnings kept the whole state on edge. Meanwhile, at Rangers Stadium, not a drop of rain fell for the second day in a row and the only thunder was the sound of the Blue Jay bats drumming on the Rangers for the second night in a row. The Jays scored five runs off Texas starter Matt Harrison before Jesse Litsch even took the mound for Toronto on their way to a 10-3 victory. Toronto won the opener of this four-game series 6-4 on Monday. Adam Lind, who came into the game with eight hits — just one of them for extra bases — in his last 50 at-bats, pounded out two home runs and a single, driving in five runs. It was the third time in his career that Lind has had a multi-homer game in this park. The Jays scored five in the first off Harrison, added two in the third and three more in the fourth inning off reliever Brett Tomko. "It was good to see us get some good swings against Harrison right from the start," said manager John Farrell. Litsch, making his first start since being demoted to Las Vegas last week, worked six gritty innings against the hard-hitting Rangers, allowing seven hits, a pair of walks and three runs. He stranded six runners.
