Blue Jays 5 Orioles 2

Another very good appearance for Daniel Norris. He went 6 innings, allowed just 3 hits, 1 earned, no walks, hit a batter and struck out 7. He looked very good. He might have had the odd change stay up,  but I have no real complaints from that start. The Orioles TV radar gun had him generally around 96 fastball, there was one pitch clocked at 100 mph, but I have my doubts it was right. Great curve and change up.

  • Steve Delabar gave up the Orioles run on a homer by Delmon Young, in his inning of work. He also gave up a single. It wasn't his most impressive inning of the spring.
  • Jeff Francis pitched a clean inning.
  • Aaron Loup had a 1, 2, 3 ninth inning.

On offense, our lineup of not quite regulars, did more than enough to win. Steve Tolleson and Kevin Pillar each homered, both crushed to left. Tolleson also had a double in his 2 for 2 day. Munenori Kawasaki and Ramon Fields had a triple each. Danny Valencia, Caleb Gindl and Justin Smoak had singles (Smoak also walked twice).

O fors went to Devon Travis (0 for 4 with 2 strikeouts), Dayan Viciedo (0 for 4), Josh Thole (0 for 3) and Ryan Goins (0 for 4, with a walk).

Travis did make a couple of very nice plays at second base.

Tomorrow the Jays host the Phillies. The game isn't on MLB.tv.
