The Blue Jays improved to 14-4 on the spring with their win over the New York Mets 3-1.

The Toronto Blue Jays came out with the 14th victory of the spring Wednesday afternoon, defeating the New York Mets by a final score 3-1.

Aaron Sanchez was simply brilliant in his start Wednesday, lowering his ERA on the spring to 1.35. At the end of the day, his record manifest a spotless 6.1 innings, allowing four hits with four strikeouts. Although on the radio, Mike Wilner described moments where Sanchez touched 99 mph with his fastball, throwing regularly in the upper 90s. His curveball left Mets' hitters waving, hoping for the best but came well short.

Offensively the Jays were stymied by Mets pitchers led by Bartolo Colon until the 9th inning. Down 1-0, Ezequiel Carrera launched a three-run home run to right-field to walk it off for a 3-1 victory.

While the performance from Sanchez was no-doubt a good one, the story of the day is reserved for Troy Tulowitzki who left the game in the bottom of the 4th inning after getting hit in the hand on a pitch.  The Blue Jays are currently awaiting results on the x-rays which are said to be for precautionary reasons.

Stay tuned for the latest on Tulo's x-rays and what it means for the Blue Jays.

UPDATE (Minor Leaguer): Tulowitzki's X-rays came back negative; diagnosed with bruised knuckles. We (especially Rob Silver) can all now breathe a sigh of relief.
