Quick Recap: Spring Game 6, Jays and Astros

Blue Jays 4 Astros 1

Just like a regular season Jays game, we left a ton of players on base. 14 hits, 5 walks but we only scored 4 runs. We left 14 on base. We didn't use many of the regulars today.


  • Ricky Romero was great, 4 hits, no walks, 2 strikeouts and no runs in 3 innings. 
  • Dana Eveland was even better. 3 innings, 2 hit, no walks or runs and 2 K. Have to think that he's at least given himself a chance to make the rotation.
  • Chad Jenkins pitched 2 innings and looked good too. Gave up a hit and a walk, with a flubbed throw (not ruled an error) on the single a run scored on him.
  • Zach Stewart pitched the 9th, got the save. 1 hit and 1 strikeout in the inning. Hard to know if the Jay pitching was so good or the Astros bats so lousy, but we things went well.

Batters of note:

  • J.P. Arencibia hit a first inning home run. 1 for 3. Crushed it, 420 feet apparently. That's his 3rd of the spring. I'd like to think the eye and hip surgery has something to do with his quick start, but let's wait till we see more of him.
  • Joey Gathright was 0 for 2 with a walk and a CS.
  • Lyle Overbay went 2 for 2 with a walk. He's hitting .571 this spring.
  • Brian Dopirak was 2 for 2 as well. Hitting .385
  • Brad Emaus 1 for 3, hitting .400.
  • Brett Wallace went 0 for 3. He is hitting .200.
  • Travis Snider was 0 for 2 with a walk. He's at .154.
  • John McDonald went 2 for 3. Batting .333 this spring.
  • Chris Lubanski was 0 for 1 with a walk. .200 thus far. 
  • Jarrett Hoffpauir went 1 for 3. He is hitting .333

Looks like the Jay have no game tomorrow. Wednesday they have a game against the Phillies and a B game. Morrow, Scrabble and Roenicke are to pitch in the B game. In the A game we'll have Broadway, Drabek, Purcey, Frasor, Gregg, Downs and Jackson scheduled to pitch.
