The Toronto Blue Jays fielded a lineup full of players who are expected to play every day for the big league club on Wednesday and beat up the traveling Baltimore Orioles 14-2.
Offensively, the Jays put on a show with a slight wind blowing out to center field. Bo Bichette (2/3, 2B, RBI, 2 R) led off the game with a home run and the Jays never looked back.
Then Randall Grichuk hit two more home runs as part of a 3/3 day with five RBI and three runs.

Then Danny Jansen hit his fourth home run of the spring, also going 3/3 with three RBI and a run, adding a triple.

Santiago Espinal came in in the fifth inning for Bichette, hitting a home run in his first at bat and going 2/2 with two RBI and a run before Andy Burns hit his first home run of the spring, going 1/2 with a solo shot subbing in for Brandon Drury, who was 0/3.
Additionally, Jonathan Davis was 1/2 with a double, a walk and two runs and Lourdes Gurriel Jr. was 2/2 with two doubles, two RBI and three runs.
On the pitching side of things we got to see a lot of pitchers either guaranteed spots on the 2020 club or guys chasing after a bullpen job. Chase Anderson had a better outing, going 3 2/3 innings with just a solo home run against him, allowing three hits and a walk with four strikeouts. Thomas Pannone went 1/3 of an inning, getting the only batter he faced. Anthony Bass retired all three batters he faced while Ken Giles had a 1-2-3 sixth, striking out one. A.J. Cole allowed a hit in the seventh, striking out one while Brian Moran gave up a solo home run in the eighth, striking out two (both righthanded hitters while lefty Mason Williams went deep). Ryan Dull finished the game with a scoreless ninth, walking one.
The Blue Jays are now 11-6 on the spring and split their squad on Thursday with some players (mostly minor leaguers) playing the Canadian Junior National Team at TD Ballpark at 1:07 pm while the rest of the squad goes to Bradenton to face the Pirates with Trent Thornton on the mound.
