Rays 9 Blue Jays 3

Well that wasn't a lot of fun. Jays managed just 5 hits and our pitchers gave up 4 home runs.

Mark Buehrle pitched 4.1 innings, allowed 7 hits, 1 home run, 0 walks, 3 strikeouts and 3 earned. He got his work in. I wouldn't think the Jays really care about his spring stats, as long as he gets his work in.

The other pitchers:

  • Colt Hynes: 0.2 innings, 1 strikeout. He has a 0 ERA on the spring.
  • Steve Delabar: 1 inning, 1 hit (a James Loney home run), and a strikeout. 3.60 ERA.
  • Aaron Loup: 1 inning, 1 hit, 1 k. 2.25. One of the few Jays' pitchers not to give up a home run.
  • Wilton Lopez: 1 inning, 1 hit (a home run), 1 k. 5.79 ERA.
  • Jeff Francis: 0.2, 5 hits, 1 home run, 4 earned, 1 strikeout. 9.82 ERA. If he had a small chance to make the team, he likely doesn't anymore.
  • Cory Burns: hit 2 batters before he got a strikeout to end the top of the 9th. Likely after the 2 hit batters, the third guy just decided to swing at anything and try to get back to the dugout without getting hurt.

On offense...well we didn't have any. Steve Tolleson had most of it, a single and then a 2-run homer in the 9th. Ryan Goins had a double, also in the 9th.  Chris Dickerson and Munenori Kawasaki each had singles.

Russell Martin and Ezequiel Carrera each went 0 for 3. Carrera still hasn't had his first hit of the spring, though he did have a 2 out walk in the 9th. Maicer Izturis, Caleb Gindl, Daric Barton and  Dayan Viciedo all went 0 for 2.

Tomorrow the Jays host the Red Sox, at 1:00 Eastern. Again the game is only on MLB Audio.
