MLB: Toronto Blue Jays at Philadelphia Phillies Jonathan Dyer-USA TODAY Sports

Blue Jays 14 Phillies 5

The Jays are now 9-6 on the spring.

Today’s star was Vladimir Guerrero. He was 4 for 4 with two doubles and a triple. He came a few feet from a home run twice. He is hitting .520 this spring.

But then a lot of the Jays batters had a good time today:

  • George Springer: 2 for 4. .278.
  • Josh Palacios: 2 for 2. .400.
  • Marcus Semien: 2 for 4, home run. .240.
  • Santiago Espinal: 1 for 2. .363
  • Bo Bichette: 1 for 4. .150.
  • Breyvic Valera: 0 for 2, 2 k. .118.
  • Teoscar Hernandez: 2 for 4, 2 doubles. .263.
  • Austin Martin: 1 for 2, k. .125.
  • Richard Urena: 0 for 2, k. .000.
  • Lourdes Gurriel, 1 for 4. .292. Also missed a catch in the outfield losing a ball in the sun, playing an easy out into a double.
  • Cavan Biggio: 2 for 3, walk .286.
  • Randal Grichuk: 2 for 4, 2 doubles. .222.
  • Danny Jansen: 1 for 3, 2 walks. .200.
  • Reese McGuire: 0 for 1. .167.

On the pitching side:

  • Tanner Roark: He pitched 3 good innings, with just a hit batter and the fly ball that Lourdes played into a double. The fourth didn’t go well, he gave up a walk, single, walk, single which cost two runs. I’m taking this as a positive and that he tried in the fourth inning.
  • Kirby Snead got the last two outs of the fourth, giving up a sac fly to score a third run against Roark’s record.
  • Ross Stripling, who likely has a starting job with Pearson out, went 3 innings, allowed 3 hits, including a home run, 2 earned, and a walk.
  • Tyler Chatwood: 2 perfect innings with a strikeout.


Tomorrow the Jays host the Yankees
