Quick Recap: Not much offense, Jays lose

New, 41 comments
MLB: Spring Training-Atlanta Braves at Toronto Blue Jays Butch Dill-USA TODAY Sports

Braves 5 Blue Jays 1

Not a great start for Joe Biagini, though most of the damage happened in his last inning of work, when he was likely tiring. The team does have to push him a bit. He went 3.1, gave up 4 hits, 3 earned, with no walks, 5 strikeouts, 1 hit batter and 1 home run. 2 of the earned runs came in the 4th inning. The 5 strikeouts are a nice sign.

Other pitchers:

  • Luis Santos: Got the last 2 outs of the 4th, got a strikeout.
  • Tim Mayza: Gave up a leadoff homer, but got the next 3, with 1 k.
  • Al Alburquerque: Also a leadoff homer, and a k in his inning.
  • Chad Girodo: 1 inning, 2 k.
  • Chris Rowley: 1 inning, 2 hits, 2 k.
  • Jordan Romano: 1 inning, 1 k.

Hitters:

  • Aledmys Diaz: 0 for 3. Played short, he might be starting the season there. Hitting .200 on the spring.
  • Lourdes Gurriel: 0 for 1, k. .267.
  • Yangervis Solarte: 0 for 3, k. .118.
  • Josh Donaldson: 1 for 1, walk. .333. Played his first defense of the spring.
  • Gift Ngoepe: 0 for 2, 2 k. .154. After the home run in his first appearance, he has not hit much at all.
  • Justin Smoak: 0 for 3, k. .133. I’m not worrying yet.
  • Russell Martin: 0 for 2. .182. There were 2 wild pitches, one that went through Russell’s legs.
  • Max Pentecost: 0 for 2. .083.
  • Kendrys Morales: 0 for 4, 1 k. .200.
  • Randal Grichuk: 1 for 2, home run. .364.
  • Anthony Alford: 0 for 1. .294.
  • Kevin Pillar: 0 for 2. .500.
  • Dalton Pompey: 1 for 1. .200.
  • Teoscar Hernandez: 1 for 2, home run (hit deep to center). .188.
  • Roemon Fields: 1 for 1. .364.

Jays are now 3 and 8. Tomorrow they have a pair of games. At Dunedin vs. the Pirates (likely with the A team) and away vs. the Tigers (the B team for sure).
