Another day, another win. A nice game for a lot of Jays, a bit of sloppy defense there at the end but we survived.
- Henderson Alvarez: 3 innings, 4 hits, 1 earned, 0 walks, 3 k, 4 ground outs, 1 fly out. A pretty good showing, considering he was pitching against what looks, pretty much, to be the Yankees' everyday line up.
- Carlos Villanueva: 2 innings, 1 hit, 1 k.
- Jason Frasor: 1 inning, 1 hit, 1 walk. It sounded like the hit was a ball that should have been caught.
- Joel Carreno: 2 innings, 4 hits, 4 runs, 3 earned, 1 walk, 3 k. Could have been helped without an error by Chris Woodward.
- Jim Hoey: 1 inning, 2 hits, 2 k. Jerry said he hit 97 on the radar gun.
- Yunel Escobar: 0 for 2, walk. .190.
- Omar Vizquel: 0 for 2, k. .385.
- Kelly Johnson: 1 for 3, 2 k, steal. .250.
- Jose Bautista: 0 for 2, walk. .353.
- Adam Lind: 0 for 2, walk. .333.
- Edwin Encarnacion: 3 for 3, 2 home runs, 4 RBI. .333. Didn't to anything wrong in the field but then didn't get many chances to. The home runs were long ones, like most of his tend to be.
- Brett Lawrie: 2 for 3, double, triple, steal. .591.
- Colby Rasmus: 1 for 3, RBI, k. .211.
- J.P. Arencibia: 1 for 3, 2 RBI, k. home run .158.
- Jeff Mathis: 0 for 3, 2 k. .143.
Woodward and A.J. Jimenez each had an error.
So Edwin takes the lead in the battle for LF.
That makes the Jays 10-2 on the spring. Yeah, it doesn't mean much, but winning is always better than losing. Especially when it is over the Yankees. Tomorrow the Jays have a road game against the Astros, it is on MLB Audio again.
