The Toronto Blue Jays defeated the Baltimore Orioles 9-3 in Grapefruit League action at Ed Smith Stadium in Sarasota, Fla., on Thursday.

Three of the Blue Jays' top prospects - Vladimir Guerrero Jr., Bo Bichette and Anthony Alford - combined for nine hits, while right-hander Aaron Sanchez allowed just one run while striking out five in three innings to record his first win of the spring.

Here are some photos from the game:
