Amanda's album - Junior National Team vs. Jays - March 17

A team consisting of some of the Toronto Blue Jays' top prospects defeated the Canadian Junior National Team 11-3 on Saturday at Dunedin Stadium.
The Blue Jays' starting lineup also featured three Canadians: Russell Martin (Montreal, Que.), Vladimir Guerrero Jr. (Montreal, Que.) and Connor Panas (Toronto, Ont.). But it was Bo Bichette who led the way for the Blue Jays, racking up three hits - including a two-run home run in the first inning - and four RBIs. Marcus Stroman, who had been sidelined with a shoulder injury, made his first spring start and pitched two scoreless innings.
Denzel Clarke (Pickering, Ont.) registered two hits for the junior squad, including a triple in the ninth inning. The highlight for the Canadian squad, however, was Roy Halladay's son, Braden, pitching a 1-2-3 eighth inning in his debut.
