Hill goes long twice; sets Jays record

Aaron Hill had a day to remember. Too bad the rest of the team didn't. Hill hit not one, but two homers, his 18th and 19th of the campaign to surpass Roberto Alomar and his own previous record for most home runs by a 2nd basemen in club history.

Hill two solo shots combined with Jose Bautista's 2 run dinger staked Toronto to a 4-1 lead. And that's when the team disappeared. Starter Brian Tallet couldn't find the strike zone, coughing up the lead in the 4th frame after hanging up a 4 spot for the Phillies. Those runs turned out to be the difference in a deflating loss.

Hill just keeps on trucking, and if he continues on his current tear he'll smash Blue Jays records for a 2nd basemen. It's too bad his accomplishment is overshadowed because the team couldn't find a way to bury the Phils.
