We got good news from the pitching side. 6 Jays pitchers combined to allow just 1 run off 7 hits with 1 walk and 8 strikeouts.
Joe Biagini went 3 innings, allowed just 2 hits, 1 homer, 3 strikeouts. The homer was after 2.2 innings so maybe he was tiring in his second appearance of the spring. I think he’s the first Jays starter to go 3 innings. Glad to see him do well.
Deck McGuire pitched the last 2 inning, allowing just a walk, with 2 strikeouts. If this was a few years ago, we’d be thrilled, but he’s nice depth.
- Roberto Osuna: 1 inning, 1 single, 1 k.
- Aaron Loup: 1 inning, 2 singles.
- Ryan Tepera: 1 inning, 1 single, 2 k.
- Taylor Guerrieri: 1 inning, 1 single.
Curtis Granderson hit his second homer of the spring, a 3-run shot. He also struck out.
- Dalton Pompey: 0 for 1, k.
- Yangervis Solarte: 1 for 3, k.
- Lourdes Gurriel: 0 for 1.
- Russell Martin: 0 for 3, 3 k. He hit a home run his last game. Today he DHed.
- Dwight Smith: 1 for 1.
- Teoscar Hernandez: 2 for 3, double. His first hits of the spring. He also had a steal.
- Anthony Alford: 0 for 2, sac fly, k.
- Danny Jansen: 0 for 1, sac fly.
- Roemon Fields: 1 for 1. He’s hitting .429 on the spring.
- Max Pentecost: 0 for 2, k. He caught someone trying to steal.
- Jason Leblebijian: 2 for 3, 1 k.
- Gift Ngoepe: 0 for 1, 1 walk.
- Richard Urena: 0 for 1.
And, listening to the radio broadcast, I thought Ben Wagner did a very nice job. I guess we’ll hear him for the next few days. He’s making Sportsnet’s decision a tough one.
