 Glaus goes deep with 'em loaded
Troy Glaus' 27th homer of the season cleared loaded bases in the first, but Toronto went dormant thereafter. Glaus walked in his next three trips to the plate, and Alex Rios, batting after Glaus in the order, struck out five times. Dustin McGowan took the loss in his first start this season.
