Encarnacion and Sierra homer, Jays beat Tigers


Tigers 4 Blue Jays 9

That makes 4 wins in a row.

It really looks like the offense has it together (doesn't hurt the offense that the wind was blowing out). Now if the starting pitching could come around.....

Happy Thoughts:

  • Todd Redmond threw 4 scoreless innings, gave up a walk and hit in a scoreless 5th. The 6th wasn't so good, he gave up a homer and 3 doubles, and 4 runs. In total 6 innings, 5 hits, 1 walk with 8 strikeouts. 4 runs, 3 earned. Until he tired, he looked great.
  • Steve Delabar, Aaron Loup and Tyler Ybarra pitched a scoreless inning each.
  • Melky Cabrera went 3 for 4, with 2 doubles. .434.
  • Jose Bautista went 2 for 2 with 2 walks..390.
  • Edwin Encarnacion was 2 for 4, with a double and a home run. .320.
  • Moises Sierra went 1 for 2, with a home run. .256.
  • Colby Rasmus had a 2 for 5 day, with a double. ..242.
  • Josh Thole was 2 for 4 with a double. ..227.

Less Happy Thoughts:

  • Ryan Goins went 0 for 4 with 2 strikeouts. .180.
  • Brett Lawrie was 0 for 4 with a strikeout. .318.
  • Jonathan Diaz made his 3rd error of the spring. It was a pretty hard hit ball, but Redmond really could have used the help to get through the 6th inning.

We are back to 11-11 on the spring. Not terrible. Tomorrow they play the Yankees at Tampa Bay. The game is on, but not on Sportsnet. Mark Buehrle gets the start. Michael Pineda for the Yankees.
