Lots of offense and good pitching, Jays win.

Blue Jays 9 Orioles 3

The important news?

Vladimir Guerrero Jr was 4 for 5, all singles.

Bo Bichette was 2 for 3, and had a couple of RBI.

Anthony Alford 3 for 4, with a triple and 2 doubles (he went to third on an error on one too).

Other hitters:

  • Dalton Pompey: 0 for 4, 2 strikeouts. .222. He had a rough day at the plate.
  • Roemon Fields: 1 for 1, double. .500.
  • Lourdes Gurriel: 2 for 2. .333. He had a throwing error.
  • Justin Leblebijian: 1 for 4, double. .269.
  • Max Pentecost: 0 for 3, walk, k. .118.
  • Richard Urena: 0 for 3, k. .059.
  • Andrew Guillotte: 1 for 1, walk. .333. He was also picked off first to end the Jays half of the ninth.
  • Gift Ngoepe: 0 for 2. .111. He also lost a ball in the sun.
  • Tim Lopes: 0 for 2, walk, k. .200. Had a throwing error.
  • J.D. Davis: 2 for 4, double. .286.

Pitchers:

Aaron Sanchez didn’t seem to be very sharp, but he went 3 innings, allowing 4 hits, 1 earned, 1 walk with 5 strikeouts, facing most of the Orioles regulars. He had a wild pitch over Pentecost that Homer Bush said ‘he’s having release point issues’.

  • Taylor Guerrieri: 2 innings, 1 walk, 3 strikeouts.
  • Ryan Tepera: 1 inning, 1 hit. He was hit hard, long fly outs, plus a double off the wall, but he got through the inning.
  • Aaron Loup: 1 inning, 1 hit, 1 k.
  • Sean Reid-Foley: 1.2 innings, 3 hits, 2 earned, homer, 1 walk, 1 k. He’s had a rough spring so far. He had a 10.80 ERA. He couldn’t get out of the 9th.
  • Luis Santos: Got a ground out to end the game.

Homer Bush joined Ben Wagner and Mike Wilner on the broadcast. He had some interesting incites, but I didn’t think he was very good in the analyst role.

Jays are now 6-8. The worries about that lack of offense have gone away over the past couple of days.

Tomorrow the Orioles come to Dunedin.
