**Estee Harris**.

**Steven White**was not spectacular on Tuesday but his defense did not help him out either. He had some control problems, issuing three walks through his two innings of work. He threw 47 pitches, 24 for strikes and 23 balls. He gave up one hit, two runs and had one strikeout. He started off the game inducing Toronto's leadoff hitter to hit a ground ball to second base on his second pitch of the game but second baseman J.T. Stotts bobbled the ball and allowed the runner to reach base. It did not let it affect him as he got the next two hitters to fly-out to centerfield but he ending walking the next batter and giving up a booming double to right centerfield. He then issued his second walk of the game on four pitches he ended the inning by striking out the batter swinging on a nasty breaking ball. He only needed 12 pitches to get out of his second inning of work, walking one and inducing two fly-outs and a ground out.

**Brett Gardner**had a fantastic day at the plate, collecting two hits in his three at-bats and scoring two runs on Tuesday. He used both sides of the field and continues to impress this spring. In his first at-bat, he spanked a double into the left-centerfield gap and ended up scoring Scranton's first run of the game on a RBI groundout by Eric Duncan. He flew out to right field in the third inning and ended his day by ripping a single through first and second base.

**Eric Duncan**went 1 for 4 in his five plate appearances on Tuesday with two RBIs. In the first inning, he knocked in Brett Gardner on an RBI ground out to first base. He walked in the third and got his second RBI of the day in the fifth by driving in the go-ahead run on a fielder's choice. His only hit of the day came in the seventh inning on a line drive to right field and he ended his day by flying out to left field.

**Jeff Kennard**had great control and was very efficient with his pitch count in his three innings of work. He threw 37 pitches, 25 of them for strikes. He gave up two hits, struck out two and did not issue a walk. He gave up a single on his first pitch of the game but he settled in nicely and struck out the next two batters. He came back from a 3-0 count before getting the batter to strikeout swinging. In his next two innings of work, his one mistake was a little hit up the middle. He was also helped out by his defense, getting two spectacular plays from third baseman Kevin Howard and second baseman JT Stotts.

**Alberto Gonzalez**went just 1 for 3 but made productive outs in his other at-bats. In his first at-bat, he grounded out to second base but his out moved Brett Gardner to third base, which helped Scranton score their first run. In the third inning, he reached base on an error by the Toronto shortstop and also stole third base after a walk by Eric Duncan moved him to second. In his last at-bat, he executed a perfect hit and run that led to another Scranton run to tie the game at two.

**Michael Gardner**'s fate on the mound on Tuesday should have been better but miscues in the field let him down. He gave up one unearned run, one hit, walked one and struck out one. His outing started off by inducing two weak ground balls to second and third base. He then gave up a single and a walk, but an erroneous throw by Jeff Beachum on the next play let a run score. He got out more trouble by ending the inning with a ground out. He had a 1-2-3 inning in the seventh by striking out one and inducing two ground outs.

**J.T. Stotts**went 1 for 3 with a walk and an RBI single on Tuesday. He walked in his first at-bat in the second inning and grounded into a 5-4-3 double play to end the fourth inning. He struck out swinging in the sixth inning and hit an RBI single in his last at-bat of the day to score Joe Burke which led to Scranton's fourth run of the game. He also scored the fifth and last run of the game for Scranton.

**Estee Harris**went 1 for 4 with an RBI. He grounded out twice, struck out looking but roped a single to right field which scored the last run of the game for Scranton. He had a little miscue on the base paths by getting picked off second base when he wandered too far when the pitcher pulled a Jeff Nelson move to third and then to first.

**Gerardo Casadiego**was knocked around in his two innings of work on Tuesday. He threw 38 pitches, 24 of them for strikes. He gave up four runs, five hits, walked two and struck out one. He did not help himself by making a throwing error on a sacrifice bunt to first baseman Eric Duncan, but was helped out by a head's up play by third baseman Aarom Baldiris who made a terrific double play on a ground ball by tagging out the runner on third who wandered too far away from the bag and throwing over to first base to get the runner out. In the ninth inning, he started out well by getting a ground out and a strikeout but he allowed four more hits, a walk and three runs to score before being taken out without getting three outs.

**Kevin Howard**reached base in both of is plate appearances. He hit a single up the middle in the second inning but was caught stealing second base. He also reached on an error by the second baseman in the fourth inning.

**Charleston's Batting Order**:

**Seth Fortenberry**,

**Austin Jackson**,

**Mitch Hilligoss**,

**Josue Calzado**,

**Francisco Cervelli**,

**Jesus Montero**,

**Carlos Urena**,

**Gerardo Rodriguez**,

**Wilmer Pino**, and

**Jose Pirela**.

**Ivan Nova**started for the Riverdogs and tossed two innings of scoreless baseball, allowing just one hit, walking none, and striking out a pair of batters. His fastball sat mostly in the 93-94 MPH range and he ripped off a few wicked curveballs, one which nosedive on top of the plate for a swinging strikeout.

**Carlos Urena**, who entered Tuesday's game with a home run in each of his last three official at-bats, crushed a 97 MPH offering from the Blue Jays' pitcher for a hard-hit double to left-center in his first at-bat of the day. He saw his streak of reaching base safely snapped at six at-bats when he struck out swinging in his second at-bat and capped off his day grounding out into a fielder's choice.

**Wilmer Pino**had his second straight multi-hit game on Tuesday, going 2-3 with a 2-RBI double and a run scored. He did however get caught stealing second base but continues to look solid at the plate.

**Dellin Betances**looked both inconsistent and dominating at the same time. Throwing a fastball that reached 95 MPH on Tuesday, he appeared to be in better command when sitting around 92 MPH with his heater. He threw 17 strikes and 13 balls on the afternoon, but he was getting incredible movement with his pitches. In fact, the wicked movement he was getting on his curveball was drawing quite a response from the on-looking Blue Jays fans seated in the stands behind the plate. He didn't allow a hit, walked two, and struck out two in two innings.

**Josue Calzado**hit the ball hard all three times he stepped to the plate on Tuesday, going 2-3 with an RBI double. If he can continue that type of consistency, he is going to have a great year power-wise.

**Jesus Montero**went 0-1 in three at-bats. While he failed to get a hit, he keeps showing a very good eye at the plate, drawing two more walks on Tuesday. He got down 0-2 quickly in his third at-bat and fought he way back to get himself into a full-count before drawing his second walk.

**Zach McAllister**wasn't throwing particularly hard in his two innings of work, sitting mostly 88-90 MPH with his fastball. But his curveball, which has come a long way since last year, and his changeup were getting excellent movement. He gave up the only Toronto extra-base hit in the game

*(a double)*but still managed to strike out three batters and walked just one in his two innings.

**Francisco Cervelli**, who had the day off on Monday, struggled once again on Tuesday. He went 0-3 with two more strikeouts, extending his hitless streak to seven at-bats. He did have a beautiful pickoff at first base, catching a base runner leaning off a bit too far.

**Austin Jackson**went 0-2 with a walk an run scored in the victory. He lined out to deep centerfield in his first at-bat and flied out to right field in his second at-bat of the day. He also has been playing left field for the past two games while Urena has been a fixture in center.

**David Robertson**has been a completely different pitcher than advertised. Reported to hit the low-to-mid-90's with his fastball in college, he hasn't yet shown that type of velocity. He saw mostly in the 86-89 MPH with his fastball on Tuesday, but while his secondary stuff weren't reported to be there, he has shown a good slider in camp so far and mixed in a good looking changeup and curveball on Tuesday. He struck out a game-high four batters in his two innings of work, walking one and giving up one hit.

**Prilys Cuello**continues to make the most of his limited opportunities. While he didn't get the start on Tuesday, he hit a ringing triple to left-center while batting left-handed in his only at-bat of the day.

**Jose Pirela**had an RBI single in the victory, but after stealing second base, got picked off when he fell for the fake move to third base. He then struck out in his final two at-bats. He shows signs of both being a very exciting player and a very young one at the same time with the types of mistakes he has made.

**John Axford**only pitched on inning against the Blue Jays but made quick work of them. Sitting 90-91 MPH with his fastball, he was also throwing his curveball and changeup for strikes in his scoreless inning of relief.
