That was the Darwin Barney show. He 3 for 3 with 2 doubles, 5 RBI (he would have had 6, but Richard Urena got thrown out at the plate).
Beyond that, Marcus Stroman looked good, even if he gave up 2 earned. He had a quick first inning. In the second he gave up a 2-out single. Then a soft roller down the third base line that he tried to make a play on (I'd like him to take it easy in spring), that he threw wide of first for a single plus error. 2 more fairly soft singles and the Phillies had 2 runs in.
On the Phillies side, our old friend J.P. Arencibia singled and hit a solo homers.
Some other Jays lines:
- Dalton Pompey: 0 for 2, with a nice 9-pitch walk to start the game.
- Anthony Alford: 0 for 2, with a strikeout.
- Darrell Ceciliani: 0 for 3.
- Roemon Fields: 1 for 2, double. Slashed a ball down the left field line that rolled under the padding of the fence. I think he should have been awarded a triple.
- Chris Colabello: 1 for 2, a single that he barely touched, but it rolled into just the right spot on the infield that no one could get him BABIP King.
- Justin Smoak: 1 for 2, hard hit double and a walk.
- Matt Dominguez: 1 for 2, strikeout.
- Ezequiel Carrera 0 for 2, strikeout.
- Jon Berti: 0 for 2, strikeout and a bad error in the outfield. In his defense, he's really an infielder.
- Josh Thole: 0 for 2. Soft pop outs.
- A.J. Jimenez: 0 for 2.
- Maicer Izturis: 0 for 2.
- Drew Hutchison: 2 innings, 1 hit (the Arencibia homer) 1 k. Other than the home run, he looked pretty good.
- Steve Delabar: 1 inning, 1 hit, 1 k.
- Ryan Tepera: 1 inning, 1 walk.
- Chad Jenkins: 1 inning, 1 walk, 2 k. I thought he looked pretty good.
- Jay Copeland: 1 quick inning.
- Wade LeBlanc: 1 inning, 1 walk, 1 k. And he got the save.
One game, one win. nice way to start, even if it was the Jays B team.
