An ok start for Brandon Morrow. 2 innings, plus a batter, 1 hits, 1 walk, 3 k, 1 unearned run. He wasn't helped by a dropped popup by Lance Zawadzki, lost in the sun. He was to go 3 innings, but hit his pitch count early.
Brett Cecil relieved him, with a runner on second and two out, and got out of the inning without the run scoring. He had a more trouble in the 4th, a lead off double, 2 strikeouts, a walk, then another double, scoring 2, and a ground out to end things In total, 1 innings, 2 hits, both doubles, 1 walk, 3 k.
After that we had an inning each from:
- Michael Schwimer: 1 hit, a home run, 1 walk, 2 k, 1 earned.
- Tommy Hottovy: 1 hit, 1 k.
- Aaron Loup: 1 hit, 2 k.
- Ramon Ortiz: 1 hit.
Our batters had troubles hitting Justin Verlander, not really a surprise. They only had 2 base runners in 4 innings against him, Adam Lind walked and doubled against him.
- Anthony Gose: 0 for 3, walk, k. .300.
- Rajai Davis: 0 for 3..176.
- Maicer Izturis: 1 for 3, k. Gets his first hit of the spring. .056,
- Jim Negrych: 1 for 1, home run. .400.
- Adam Lind: 1 for 1, double, walk. .474.
- Lars Anderson: 1 for 1, walk and a base running mistake that ended the game. He'll fit in great. .250.

Tomorrow the Jays head over to Sarasota to play the Orioles and this game will be shown on FX Canada, for those of you that get the channel.
