The good news is that Marcus Stroman pitched 2 clean innings, with 3 strikeouts. Much better than his first start.

And we hit some home runs. Smoak, Drury, Bichette and Pentecost all homered.

Bad news? We lost another.

Other pitchers:

  • Elvis Luciano: 1 inning, 2 hits, 1 earned, 1 k. He has looked pretty good this spring. He did give up a double and a single this time out but it wasn’t a bad inning.
  • Thomas Pannone: 2 innings, 2 hits, 2 earned, 1 walk and 4 k.
  • Yennsy Diaz: 2 innings, 2 hits, 3 earned, 2 walks, a home runs.
  • Corey Copping: 1 inning, 1 walk, 1 k.
  • Zach Jackson: 1 inning, 3 hits, 1k. He was helped out by a player thrown out going home.

Batters:

Starters:

  • Dalton Pompey: 0 for 4, reached on an error. Hitting .267 now.
  • Bo Bichette: 1 for 3, home run.
  • Randal Grichuk: 0 for 2.
  • Justin Smoak: 1 for 2, home run.
  • Kendrys Morales: 0 for 3, k.
  • Brandon Drury: 1 for 3, home runs, k.
  • Danny Jansen: 1 for 2.
  • Cavan Biggio: 0 for 2, k.

Replacements:

  • Eric Sogard: 0 for 2, k.
  • Nash Knight: 0 for 1, k.
  • Reese McGuire: 0 for 1.
  • Santiago Espinal: Walk.
  • Max Pentecost: 2 for 2, home run.
  • Andrew Guilotte: 0 for 1, k.
  • Dwight Smith: 0 for 1.

So we are now 1-6-1 on the spring.

Tomorrow’s game will be Sportsnet.
