Quick Spring Recap: Jays Beat Braves

MLB: Spring Training-Atlanta Braves at Toronto Blue Jays Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Braves 3 Blue Jays 4

Shun Yamaguchi didn’t have a good outing. He gave up 3 hits, walked 1 and hit 1. while giving up 3 runs before being pulled with 2 out in the first inning.

Mike and Ben felt that Shun was robbed on a call which would have been the third strike and would have gotten Shun out of the inning without a run scoring, but then they only had the above view. They felt the pitch was a strike and, also, that the batter swung.

Beyond that, Ben Wagner told us that Buck and Pat would be back this year. Sort of in a roundabout way it does sound like they will be back.

The Jays didn’t allow a run after the first inning.

Other pitchers:

  • Conor Fisk: Got the final out of the first inning, a strikeout. (Just 1 ‘n’ Tom).
  • Travis Bergen: 1 inning, 2 hits, 1 k.
  • Ken Giles: 1 inning, 1 k.
  • Anthony Bass: 1 inning, 2 k. Why didn’t I think his name was Randy?
  • Wilner Font: 1 clean inning.
  • Hector Perez: 1 innings, 1 walk, 1 k.
  • Ty Tice: 1 inning, 1 hit, 1 k.
  • Vinny Nittoli: 1 inning, 2 k. A name that I didn’t expect to come up this spring. Vinny is 29, he pitched out of the bullpen for the Fisher Cats last year (or at the end of last year after being released by the Diamondbacks). 8 walks and 40 strikeouts in 43 innings for the Fisher Cats sounds pretty good.
  • Bryan Baker: 1 inning, 1 K, for the save.


  • Bo Bichette: 1 for 3, singled in the first inning and scored when
  • Cavan Biggio: Doubled, going 1 for 3 with a k. Cavan was the front half of a double steal with Vlad.
  • Lourdes Gurriel: 0 for 3, 2 k. Lourdes is one of those guys who I won’t care about his spring numbers, especially early. I think he will need his time to get his timing.
  • Vladimir Guerrero: 1 for 2, walk.
  • Randal Grichuk: 1 for 1, 2 walks. Double. By Wagner and Wilner’s description, it sounded like the Braves outfielder badly miss played the hit. Vlad didn’t score from second on it, as he had to wait to see if a play was made,
  • Teoscar Hernandez: 1 for 2, 1 walk. Played RF.
  • Danny Jansen: 2 walks.
  • Brandon Drury: 0 for 2. Hit into a double play to end the top of the first, after we score three runs. Being fair to him, it sounded like he hit the ball good and the Braves made a good play.
  • Patrick Kiviehan: 1 for 2, played first base.
  • Ryan Noda: 1 for 1, walk, double.
  • Andy Burns: 0 for 2, k.
  • Riley Adams: 0 for 2.
  • Billy McKinney: 0 for 1.
  • Anthony Alford: 0 for 1, k.
  • Kevin Smith: walk.
  • Ruben Tejada: 0 for 2, k.

For what it is worth, the Jays are undefeated this spring, 2 win and a tie.
