CLEVELAND - A three-game sweep of the Indians was getting ready to be placed in the books but then another bullpen hiccup occurred.

Aaron Loup has been one of the steadiest relievers the Blue Jays have had this season but Saturday against the Indians he caught a bug transported from Minneapolis.

Back in Minnesota, the eighth-inning meltdown by the Jays in Thursday’s second game was the stuff of legends, an inning that featured eight walks, three wild pitches and six runs.

Loup wasn’t part of the Minneapolis fiasco but whatever it was that afflicted the Jays relievers that night struck Loup in the sixth inning yesterday.
