Marcus Stroman had a very nice start. Through 4 innings he allowed just 1 base runner and that was on his own error. He went after a popup and didn’t peel off when called off (the picture above shows the error). He had some troubles in the 5th inning. He hit the first batter, got a strikeout and then gave up back-to-back singles, scoring a run. Javy Guerra came in and got a double play to end the inning.
In all, Stroman pitched 4.1, allowed 2 singles, 1 earned, no walks, the hit batter and had 6 strikeouts. And the error. A pretty good showing.
- Javy Guerra only faced the one batter, getting the double play.
- Sean Reid-Foley: Had a tough time. He get up 2 hits, a walk, 2 earned with 4 strikeouts. 5.73 ERA.
- David Paulino: Had a much tougher time. Gave up 2 hits, 2 walks, 3 earned without getting an out. 9.00 ERA.
- Danny Barnes: 1 inning, 1 hit, 1 k. 1.80.
Hitters, starting lineup:
- Dalton Pompey: 0 for 4, k. .250. Good to see him back in the lineup.
- Bo Bichette: 2 for 5. .387.
- Billy McKinney: 1 for 3, k. .276.
- Danny Jansen: 1 for 3, k. .286.
- Rowdy Tellez: 2 for 3, k. .324. He had a couple of infield singles.
- Cavan Biggio: 0 for 3, walk, 2k. .222.
- Jonathan Davis: 2 for 4. .214.
- Eric Sogard: 1 for 2, walk, double, ,231.
- Richard Urena: 1 for 4. .304. He’s, quietly, having a very nice spring. I’m hoping he gets a MLB job, with Travis likely starting the season on the DL.
None of the replacements had a hit. Chavez Young made a nice catch in the outfield.
Jays are now 9-8-1 on the spring.
Tomorrow the Yankees come to Dunedin. The game isn’t on TV. Friday’s game is on TV.
