Toronto played a B game against the Phillies this morning at Bright House Networks Field in Clearwater, Fla. The game doesn’t count in terms of the Grapefruit League standings or statistics.

Dustin McGowan started for the Jays and allowed no runs on two hits in two innings. McGowan threw 49 pitches — 29 for strikes — and he walked three, struck out two and hit one batter. The two hits he gave up were an infield single and a single through the hole between first and second that came on a hit-and-run.

Casey Janssen also pitched two innings for the Jays and looked very sharp. He threw 26 pitches, including 20 for strikes. Janssen gave up two hits and struck out four, including Phil’s Aaron Roward and Pat Burrell. Toronto second baseman Russ Adams belted a two-run homer off Philadelphia starter Freddy Garcia in the third.

It’s game time at Knology. Stay tuned for more…
