Golden Sombrero: Juan Rivera

The move to the cleanup spot prompted four strikeouts

Top 1: Juan Rivera struck out swinging against Nick Blackburn

Top 3: Rivera struck out swinging against Blackburn

Top 6: Once again, Rivera struck out swinging against Blackburn

Top 8: Struck out swinging against Matt Capps

Top 11: Four-pitch walk against Jim Hoey

Final Line: 0-5, 4 K, BB

Notes: Serving as the Blue Jays’ cleanup hitter with Adam Lind out of the lineup, Rivera did his best impersonation of Vernon Wells on Saturday when he fanned in four of his five at-bats.  The designated “hitter” is now batting .217 and slugging a dismal .272. Don’t be surprised if he is a repeat offender this season.

Total 2011 Sombreros: 23
