For the 1971 Baltimore Orioles, the 1995 Atlanta Braves, or the 2010 San Francisco Giants the outing probably would have been scoffed at.
Right-hander Chien-Ming Wang made his debut Tuesday night with the Blue Jays allowing 10 hits and five runs in 7 1/3 innings.
The Blue Jays won once down to their final two outs in the ninth, Jose Bautista hit a game-tying homer and Rajai Davisí bat and legs won it in the 10th, landing them a 7-5 win over the last-place Chicago White Sox, before 20,700 fans at U.S. Cellular Field.
Yet in the grand scheme of things, the most impressive was Wang.
He worked 7 1/3 innings -- only the fourth Blue Jays starter to work 7 1/3 or more this season.
Roughed up in fourth for four runs, he gave his team a chance to win the game.
