Jays rally in fourth


© St. Petersburg Times, published March 11, 2001

DUNEDIN -- Four pitches. Three runs. One inning.

Boston right-hander Frank Castillo no-hit his old Toronto teammates through three innings, then saw it all unravel in the fourth inning of the Blue Jays' 6-2 win.

Shannon Stewart slapped a long single to leftfield. Shortstop Craig Grebeck's error allowed Alex Gonzalez on base. Raul Mondesi scored both with a shot to deep center that Boston's Carl Everett misplayed, letting the ball fall over his head as Mondesi stretched it into a triple. Carlos Delgado's sacrifice fly scored Mondesi.

The Jays' Hector Carrasco got the win in relief of Chris Michalak, allowing one hit in the fourth and fifth innings. Brad Fullmer and Vernon Wells added RBI, and Wells held a fielding clinic in center.

"He made some great plays today," Toronto manager Buck Martinez said. "He made some great reads out there."

Toronto infielder Mickey Morandini made his first appearance of the spring, playing two errorless innings after being sidelined with a sore right shoulder.

B TEAM: Toronto's B squad fell to Philadelphia 5-2. Joey Hamilton gave up a run and two hits in three innings and Kelvim Escobar took the loss, giving up four runs and three hits in two innings.

FULL HOUSE: Red Sox fans showed up en masse, giving the Jays their first spring training sellout, 6,106 at Grant Field, including Olympic figure skater Nancy Kerrigan.

MOVES: Toronto assigned left-hander Mark Hendrickson to its minor-league camp. Right-hander Orlando Woodards was optioned to Double-A Tennessee of the Southern League. Boston sent left-hander Casey Fossum and infielder Juan Diaz to its minor-league camp.

SEEING DOUBLE: Today's a split-squad day for Toronto. The Jays' Pasqual Coco starts at Grant Field against the Yankees and fellow right-hander Adrian Hernandez. Chris Carpenter starts in Bradenton against the Pirates' Bronson Arroyo in another battle of right-handers. Both game times are 1:05 p.m.
