Final Line: 0-for-6, 4 K

Notes: After working out some kinks in his swing at Triple-A, Snider has been on fire since returning to the Blue Jays’ lineup.  On July 6, Snider was hitting .210. Since then, he has hit safely in eight of the last 10 games—five of which have been multi-hit performances—and entered Tuesday’s game against the Mariners hitting .256.  On Tuesday night, however, Snider wasn’t as successful, fanning in four of his six at-bats and failing to reach base in the 14-inning game.  While his golden sombrero was impressive, I find it even more impressive that Snider’s mustache was also 0-for-4 with four strikeouts.
