Blue Jays 4 Pirates 1

Quick recap.


Marcus Stroman went 1.2 innings, 2 hits, 1 strikeout, allowing an unearned run. Munenori Kawasaki made a throwing error from third that cost Marcus.

Todd Redmond (5 total pitches) and Scott Barnes each pitched a clean inning.

Matt Albers, Scott Barnes and Bo Schultz each pitched a scoreless inning, though the broken GameDay boxscore gives all three innings to Schultz. Schultz gave up a couple of walks in his inning.

Liam Hendriks gave up a hit and made a bad play on a ground ball hit back to hit.  The runner on second got too far off the bag but Liam threw to third and the runner made it back to second. But Liam ended the inning with 2 strikeouts.

Matt West closed out the game, getting two strikeouts around a deep fly out to the track

On offence:

Dalton Pompey had a very good game, 2 for 3 with a walk and a double.

Kevin Pillar was 1 for 4 with a double.

Caleb Gindl was 1 for 2 with a triple and a strikeout.

Matt Hague went 1 for 2.

Daric Barton walked and was hit by pitch.

Dioner Navarro was 1 for 3 with a double.

Having bad days:

Ezequiel Carrera was 0 for 3 with 2 strikeouts.

Chris Colabello 0 for 3 with 3 strikeouts.

Ramon Santiago, Steve Tolleson, and Ryan Goins were all 0 for 2. Devon Travis was 0 for 1.


Kawasaki had the throwing error. Liam Hendriks made the bad play that wasn't called an error.

On the good side A.J. Jimenez threw out his second base stealer. Pompey made a nice catch and doubled off the runner at second (the GameDay box score says Pillar, but I'm pretty sure it was Pompey. Wilner said it was and there are a number of problems with the GameDay boxscore, so I'm going with Wilner). Pillar made a good catch in the outfield.

Make Pompey the Jay of the Day.

Our first win of the year.

Tomorrow the Jays play an evening game against the Orioles.
