Update: Blue Jays 4, Pirates 2
BRADENTON - We're in the top of the sixth, and the Jays lead the Buccos 4-2.
David Cooper and Edwin Encarnacion have homered for the Jays, and Neil Walker hit one for the Pirates.
Some random thoughts:
- Stewart Harris, today's anthem singer, was incredible. His classy, understated renditions of both anthems earned a rousing ovation from the crowd, as well as one from us cynical folk in the press box.
- What a crowd! A Wednesday afternoon? The Blue Jays?! Haven't received an official attendance figure just yet, but this could be McKechnie's second straight sellout this spring. And the Blue Jays?! Oh, Canada, indeed.
I'll be back with more as the game rolls along.
