A split squad of Toronto Blue Jays players trounced the Pittsburgh Pirates 13-4 at Dunedin Stadium on Wednesday.

The Blue Jays' offensive explosion was aided by home runs from five different players: Devon Travis, Montreal native Russell Martin, Roemon Fields, Curtis Granderson and Dwight Smith Jr. Left-hander J.A. Happ started and picked up the win for the Blue Jays.

All in all it was a successful day for the Blue Jays as their other split squad defeated the Detroit Tigers 6-5 at Joker Marchant Stadium in Lakeland, Fla.

Here are some photos from Dunedin Stadium on Wednesday:

Born in Ottawa, ON and growing up with military parents, my childhood was filled with new cities all of the time, stretching from one side of Canada to the other. 

I took to sports at a young age, primarily Tae Kwon Do. I loved the competitiveness of it and by age 13 won my first North American and Canadian Championship title.

I moved out West after I was done my schooling, where I obtained a Diploma as an Automotive Technician.  I loved the amazing landscapes Alberta offered me, where I could pursue my passion of photography.  It wasn't until 2013, when I realized what I really wanted to be taking pictures of, after I travelled to Phoenix to watch Team Canada in the WBC. I was hooked on sports photography, and baseball, right then and there.  I currently live in Calgary, AB and spend my summers shooting the WMBL Okotoks Dawgs.
