So really only one important moment in that game:

The rest of it?

Tanner Roark went 2 innings allowed 2 hits, 2 walks, 1 earned (a home run), 2 k.

  • Shun Yamagucki: He pitched a nice quick 3rd inning. Gave up a solo homer and a double in the 4th inning. The 5th inning didn’t go well, homer, strikeout, walk, homer, double and then he was out of the game. I discount the third inning of work, he’s building up the arm strength.
  • Ty Tice got the last 2 outs for the 5th. He walked a guy and hit a guy, but got out of the inning without more runs scoring.
  • Thomas Pannone: 1 inning, 1 hit.
  • Thomas Hatch: 1 inning, 2 k. I’m a fan, and not just because of the name. I would hope we see him this season, but that would mean a couple of bad things happened to others on the staff.
  • Justin Miller: 1 inning, 1 walk, 1 k.

On the offensive side, Vlad homered (and walked) and that’s all I really care about. He’s hitting .263 this spring with 2 homers.


  • Billy McKinney: 0 for 3. k. Hitting .333 this spring.
  • Andy Burns: 1 for 3, k.
  • Cavan Biggio: 0 for 3, k. Hitting .188 this spring.
  • Travis Shaw: 1 for 2 k. Hitting .118. I’m not going to worry about what he’s hitting early in the spring, but I’ll worry if he hits a buck something the last week of spring.
  • Randal Grichuk: 1 for 3, k. .214.
  • Reese McGuire: 0 for 2, k. .091.
  • Anthoy Alford: 0 for 2. .167. No strikeouts, no errors. Let’s count it as a success.
  • Ruben Tejada: 0 for 2. .111.
  • Kevin Smith: 0 for 1
  • Alejandro Kirk: Walk.
  • Chavez Young: 0 for 1, k.
  • Patrick Cantwell: 0 for 2, k.
  • Forrest Wall: 0 for 1.
  • Santiago Espinal: 0 for 1.

There were a few others who went 0 for 1.
