DUNEDIN, Fla -- The Blue Jays rode the shutout pitching of Brandon Morrow, Francisco Cordero and Casey Janssen -- plus some timely hitting by non-roster veteran Omar Vizquel, Colby Rasmus and Travis Snider -- to their eighth win of the spring, 4-1, over the Orioles on Monday at Florida Auto Exchange Stadium.
Morrow, making his second start of the exhibition season, turned in three more scoreless innings. Morrow has now yielded two hits and faced just 18 batters in five innings of work.
Baltimore starter Wei-Yin Chen, making his second spring start for the Orioles after pitching for four years in Japan for the Chunichi Dragons, also worked three innings.
"The most important thing for me today was that I lost my tempo in the first two innings, and in the third [inning], I felt really really good because everything was comfortable," Chen said.
Rasmus doubled down the right-field line with two outs in the second inning, driving in Kelly Johnson with the Blue Jays' first run. Snider knocked in another with a long single off the right-field fence against Baltimore's Armando Galarraga in the fourth.
And Vizquel, who is fighting to make the team as a utility infielder, delivered a bases-loaded two-run single to left.
Up next: Baltimore will send Jason Hammel to the mound against his former team, the Tampa Bay Rays, for his second Grapefruit League start on Tuesday at Ed Smith Stadium. Hammel, who is slated to go three innings, will be opposed by Rays ace David Price. Matt Moore will also throw for Tampa Bay, while the O's will also have Brad Bergesen and Troy Patton take the mound in the 1:05 p.m. ET contest on Gameday Audio.
