The Toronto Blue Jays drafted catcher Curtis Thigpen in the second round of the 2004 Major League…
Young Jays Perform Well in First Spring Game
Santos came up in the seventh inning with the bases loaded, and drilled a double to the left-field wall which cleared the bases. Santos finished the game 1-for-2 with three runs batted in and a run scored.
Rob Cosby also had a solid game, making his first appearance as a pinch runner for Frank Catalanotto. Cosby stayed in the game, and played in left field, but InsideTheDome Premium Subscribers already knew Cosby was working out in left field in winter ball by reading Cosby's Scouting Report. Cosby finished the game with two singles in three at bats.
Catcher Curtis Thigpen also had a memorable game, scoring his first run in a major league game, despite being held hitless in three at bats.
Third baseman John Hattig, who missed most of last season because of injuries, went 1-for-2 in relief of Troy Glaus.
Guillermo Quiroz took over for Bengie Molina behind the plate and finished the game 1-for-2 with a run scored.
Ryan Roberts was held hitless but managed to drive in a run and also score a run. Roberts also committed a throwing error at second base in the top of the ninth inning, trying to complete a double play attempt.
Vince Perkins and Brian Tallet both pitched in the game, and had different results. Perkins struggled in his tune-up before leaving for the World Baseball Classic allowing three runs in just 2/3 innings of work, while Tallet pitched 1 1/3 perfect innings.
Perkins came in the top of the seventh inning to relieve Brandon League, who pitched a scoreless inning, and allowed two hits, and four walks, including a base on ball with the bases loaded.
