Probably it’s not a great idea to get excited about winning spring training games, but winning is better than losing. Looking for news in the box score:
— Homer and a double for Miguel Tejada. Obviously probation agrees with him.
— Three hits, including a double, for Kaz Matsui, although he wiped out one of the hits with a caught-stealing.
— Michael Bourn was 0-for-4 with a strikeout. All that enthusiasm about playing well in winter ball fades a bit when you’re hitting .206 this late in the spring.
— Roy Oswalt pitched 6 innings with no walks, 6 strikeouts and 1 home run. Right on track for the opener.
