We had a loss and a tie in the two games.

The biggest news we that Lourdes Gurriel was hit on the wrist by a pitch and came out of the game. They say no fracture, he has a ‘forearm contusion’.

Pirates 1 Blue Jays 1 (in Dunedin)

Aaron Sanchez started, he pitched 2 good innings, allowing 1 walk and had 1 strikeout. Apparently he was hitting 95 on the radar gun. Very happy to see him have a good start to his spring.

The only Jays run was on a Logan Warmoth home run.

Other pitchers:

  • Clayton Richard: 2 innings, 1 hit, 1 walk.
  • David Paulino: 1 inning, 2 strikeouts. I think he is on the bubble with the signings yesterday.
  • Joe Biagini: 1 inning, 1 hit, 1 unearned run, 2 strikeouts. He gave up a double, next batter, Richard Urena made a throwing error and the runner scored.
  • Javy Guerra: 1 inning, 2 hits, 1 walk.
  • Shawn Morimando: 1 inning, 1 k.
  • Mark Leiter Jr.: 1 inning, 3 strikeouts.

Braves 4 Blue Jays 3 (At Disney World).

Sean Reid-Foley went 3 innings, allowed 2 hits, 2 earned, 2 walks. He pitched 2 perfect innings and then had a rough 3rd inning.

Starting Lineup:

  • Jonathan Davis: 1 for 3, home run.
  • Lourdes Gurriel Jr.: 2 for 2, home run, hit by pitch. I hope he is ok.
  • Teoscar Hernandez: 2 for 3. He’s hitting .625 this spring.
  • Kendrys Morales: 1 for 3.
  • Vlad Jr: 0 for 3, 2 k. I have this feeling he isn’t going to make the team.

So now we are 1-5-1 on the spring.
