Another good day for both out pitchers and our hitters. Kind of surprising, since we didn't have our 'A' team pitchers going tonight. We are 14-4 so far this spring.
- Aaron Laffey: 5 innings, 3 hits, 2 earned, 0 walks, 3 strikeouts, 1 home run. He had a really good game. He only had troubles in the second inning, when he gave up a hard hit double and a long home run to Kelly Shoppach. He only allowed one other hit.
- Andrew Carpenter: 2 innings, 2 hits, 1 k.
- Jesse Chavez: 1 inning, 2 k.
- Robert Coello: 1 inning, 1 walk, 1 k.
- Kelly Johnson: 0 for 4, 1 k. .233.
- Yunel Escobar: 0 for 3, walk. .258.
- Jose Bautista: 0 for 4. .296.
- Eric Thames: 2 or 3, 2 walks. .353. A good day at the plate for Eric.
- Edwin Encarnacion: 2 for 4, double. .297. He played third and made a couple of nice plays.
- Colby Rasmus: 1 for 3, walk. .207.
- Travis Snider: 2 for 4, double, k, 2 RBI, steal. .324. He had a good night at the plate too.
- David Cooper: 2 for 3, double, 3 RBI. .313.
- Jeff Mathis: 1 for 3, RBI. .143.
- Brian Jeroloman: 1 for 2, double, 2 RBI. .200.
On the Boston side, reliever-turned-starter, Daniel Bard, had an up and down 5 innings, giving up 3 hits, 3 earned, 3 walks, with 2 strikeouts. I don't know if I'd be confident about having him in the rotation, if I were a Red Sox fan. Former Jay Jesse Carlson got into the game, he face one batter, giving up a single to Eric Thames, and was pulled from the game. Only Bobby Valentine would use a pitcher to get one batter in spring training.
Tomorrow the Jays play the Orioles in Sarasota, and we are back to afternoon games, with a 1:00 eastern start. Kyle Drabek get the start.
