Sox Edge Jays 4-2 With More Good Pitching

The Red Sox got more good pitching today as they topped John Farrell's old Blue Jay team, 4-2 in Dunedin, Florida. Knuckballer Steven Wright got the win—firing two shutout innings to start the game. Also solid on the hill was Allen Webster, who hit close to the century mark on the radar gun and struck out four in his two innings—impressively Jose Bautista, Edwin Encanarcion, Brett Lawrie and J.P. Arencibia. On the offensive side, Jackie Bradley, Jr. had three hits and an RBI. By the way, when Farrell was asked by the Toronto media how he felt leaving before all the new Blue Jay acquisitions, he simply stated, "As you recall, I was traded."
