This one was an old fashion slugfest, both teams scored early but the Phillies kept the pressure up as they scored in 6 different innings including 5 in the 8th that put them ahead for good. Pictures from the game are up from the AP, click on the picture to the right to see others from the game.
The game was on MLB Radio only so I am not sure how many got to listen, but here are some of the highlights from the boxscore.
- Rajai Davis - 3-4, 2B, HR, R, 2 RBI, Hitting .343/.395/.714 on the Spring, Power won't hold up but maybe he can prove me wrong and be an everyday CF for us
- Anthony Gose - 1-2, R, 3B, 2 RBI - Showed off the speed again with a Triple.
- Jose Bautista 0-2, 2BB, R. No hits but still a factor with the walks. Gotta love it
- Adam Lind - 2-3, R - Hitting .346 through 10 Spring games
- Travis Snider - 2-3, 2RBI, Continues his strong start to the Spring. Hitting .478/.500/.565 (7 games)
- Juan Rivera - 2-4
- J.P. Arencibia - 0-3, Continues to slump, batting below .100
- Jesse Litsch - 3.1IP 9H, 5R, 4ER, BB, 4K - Not a good start at all, definitely did not help his chances at the rotation. 4.50 ERA, 1.42 WHIP, 10Ks 3BB in 12 Innings so far this Spring
- Jason Frasor - 1 IP, 2H, HR 1ER
- Jon Rauch - 1 IP, K - Looks to be a front-runner for the closer job if Francisco can't get healthy quick
- Shawn Camp - 1 IP, K
- Wil Ledezma - 0.1 IP - 3H, 2BB, 5ER, K
- Winston Abreu - 1IP - 3H, BB, 2ER, K
- Mike Hinckley and Ross Buckwalter combined for the other 1.1 Innings which were clean.
Tomorrow the Jays face off against the Pirates at 1:05 Eastern. The game will not be broadcasted on the radio or TV in any form so it looks like we are stuck with Gameday for this one.
