Defensive woes lead to 8-5 loss

Final: Blue Jays 8, Pirates 5

WP: Darren Oliver (1-0, 18.00 ERA)

LP: Shairon Martis (0-1, 0.00 ERA)

SV: Jesse Chavez (1, 0.00 ERA)

The Pirates made 3 errors (Chase d’Arnaud, Shairon Martis, and Starling Marte), which led to 3 unearned runs. There was also some poor base running as Rod Barajas was thrown out at 2nd trying to stretch a single into a double and d’Arnaud was picked off 1st base.

Erik Bedard started and gave went 2 innings and gave up 2 runs, both earned, on 1 hit, 2 walks, and a hit by pitch.

A new, slimmed down Evan Meek struggled and wasn’t able to get through his inning of work. He gave up 4 runs (3 ER) on 4 hits and 2 walks in 0.2 IP.
