Tigers 5 Blue Jays 4

As usual, the Jays show us some good stuff and some bad stuff.


  • Ryan Tepera pitched the first inning, and had a quick 3 up 3 down inning, with a strikeout.
  • Joe Smith had a tougher time. He gave up 2 runs on 2 doubles and a single.
  • Tim Mayza had a scoreless inning, allowing a soft single, and getting 2 strikeouts.
  • Chris Smith hit a batter, got a ground out, and a strikeout/throw out, in his inning.
  • Mike Bolsinger had a quick inning, giving up a leadoff single, but following it with a strikeout, fly out and ground out.
  • Bo Schultz gave up 2 singles, and run, but the run wasn’t his fault. JaCoby singled then scored from first on James McCann, when Darrell Cecillani threw to second instead of the cutoff man.
  • Dominic Leone gave up a couple of runs, on three singles and a Josh Palacios error, where he let a ground ball go threw his legs in the outfield.
  • Ryan Borucki allowed a soft single, surrounded by 3 ground outs.
  • Leonel Campos had a quick 9th, with a strikeout.

On offense:

  • Kevin Pillar: 2 for 3, with a double and a strikeout.
  • Russell Martin: 0 for 1, walk.
  • Jose Bautista: 0 for 2, walk, strikeout, and fly out to the wall.
  • Justin Smoak: 0 for 3, 2 k.
  • Melvin Upton: 1 for 2, k.
  • Darrell Ceciliani: 1 for 3, double, RBI, 2 k. Plus the misplay in the outfield.
  • Darwin Barney: 1 for 1, run, walk.
  • Ryan Goins: 0 for 2, moved a runner up with a ground out.
  • Jake Elmore: 0 for 2, k.
  • Dalton Pompey: 1 for 1, home run, walk, in his first 2 PA of the spring. Also a nice catch in the outfield.
  • Richard Urena: 0 for 2, k.
  • Jon Berti: 1 for 2, RBI and he reached on error in the 9th, but was thrown out at second on a missed hit and run.
  • Jonathan Diaz: 0 for 2, k. And he missed making contact on a hit and run. He homered yesterday.

Tomorrow the Jays host their spring neighbors the Phillies. Again, it looks like it will only be on radio.
