Two games, two wins. As my wife told me, yesterday, 'you always say it doesn't matter who wins the spring games'. I said 'no I always say 'it doesn't matter who wins when the Jays lose, when the Jays win it's building a winning attitude'. Every baseball commentator will tell you that a winning attitude is important.
Anyway, our batters did well again today:
- Rajai Davis: 1 for 2.
- Anthony Gose: 1 for 2, RBI.
- Travis Snider: 2 for 4, 3 RBI, double and a steal.
- Ben Francisco: 1 for 3, RBI.
- Brett Lawrie: 1 for 3, RBI, steal.
- Brian Bocock: 2 walks, one caught steal and he was picked off base.
- David Cooper: 0 for 3, walk.
- J.P. Arencibia: 0 for 4.
- Luis Valbuena: 1 for 2, walk.
- Jeff Mathis: 0 for 2, walk.
- Adeiny Hechavarria: 1 for 3, RBI.
The pitchers had a bit more trouble. Batter are always ahead of pitchers at the start of spring. This is how baseball works, if the pitchers do well, you say the pitchers are ahead of the batters, if they batters do well you say the opposite.
- Aaron Laffey: 2 innings, 3 hits, 1 earned, 3 k.
- Darren Oliver: 1 inning, 3 hits, 2 earned, 1 walk, 1 k.
- Francisco Cordero, Casey Janssen and Sergio Santos all had scoreless innings.
- Robert Coello: 1 inning, 2 hits, 1 walk, 2 earned, 2 k.
- Chad Beck and Jesse Chavez: each had a scoreless inning but they both walked 2.
