Rajai Davis' great catch over the LF wall

Scored the Yankees at Blue Jays today from the radio, and heard Rajai Davis make his great catch over the left field wall. Below is the Headline, Game Description and Notes from the scorecard.

I added the MLB video as soon as the game ended.

Radio-only day.

The new scroll bar scorecard worked OK, I have the line height set so small it's a little hard to click on the right line when opening a new text box - but that's just a learning curve thing.

On Rajai Davis' catch of the year over the LF wall (which I haven't seen yet) --- I was able to type in a long note in the AB box where the out happened.

In my note I used Jays' broadcaster Mike Wilner's great description of the catch.

Here's my note in 7 hitter Casey McGehee's AB box, in New York's 7th inning: "Davis gets to the track waits and times his jump scaling the wall with his spikes and catches the ball over top of the 10' wall!"

Also of note - if you've seen Rajai Davis throw from the out field before ... that was a scintillating throw after the catch, trying to double-off Granderson at 1B (of coarse the Blue Jays' television Producer is a hockey player, so he always cuts away from throws).
