Jays win again today, making them 9-2, with a tie on the spring. The split squad also beat the Canadian under 18 team too.
Another good day for the Jays. We got 11 hits off Twin pitching, the down side is we struck out 13 times:
- Davis: 0 for 3, 2 k. .294.
- Gose: 0 for 2, k. .286.
- Snider: 1 for 4, double (high off the right field wall), 2 RBI, 3 k. .304.
- d'Arnaud: 1 for 4, double, 2 RBI, k. .214.
- Thames: 1 for 4, single, 2 k. ..286.
- Cooper: 1 for 3, double, RBI, k. .316
- Sierra: 1 for 3, k. .316.
- Hechavarria: 2 for 3, double, RBI. .353.
- McCoy: 0 for 2, hit by pitch, k. ..231.
- Diaz: 2 for 3, RBI. .429.
So not a great day for either of two battling for the LF job. Snider did make a couple of nice plays in the field and was only a few feet short of a homer. Hechavarria had another good day with the bat.
It was a pretty good day for our pitchers too, except for Rick VanderHurk.
- Brett Cecil: 3 innings, 1 hit, 2 walks, 2 k. I think there were only 1 or 2 hard hit balls against him. In all, not bad.
- Rick VandenHurk: 2 innings, 4 hits, 2 earned, 1 walk, 2 k.
- Evan Crawford: 2 innings, 2 k. He hasn't given up a hit yet this spring.
- Perez: 1 inning, 1 walk, 1 k.
- Coello: 2 k.
In the game against the under 18 Canadians, the Jays won 10-2. Scott Richmond had some troubles, 3 hits and 2 earned in 2 innings. The other Jay pitchers, Tepera, Chavez, Carpenter, Magnson, Farquhar and Beck, only gave up 1 hit in 7 innings.
Michael Crouse had 3 hits. Gustavo Pierra, K.C. Hobson, John Tolisano had two hits each.
I'm watching Yu Darvish, he walked the first two Indians but both were thrown out at second trying to steal.
