Rios, Scutaro lead Jays in win vs. Tribe

Rios, Scutaro lead Jays in win vs. Tribe

at Dunedin, Fla.
Monday, March 3

Indians at the plate: In the fourth inning, Cleveland left fielder David Dellucci drilled a 1-1 pitch from Jays lefty John Parrish deep to right field for a solo home run. That marked the only offense for the Indians, who have plated 10 runs in their past four games after scoring 12 in their spring opener.

Blue Jays at the plate: Right fielder Alex Rios opened up the scoring with a single in the first inning that sent infielder Marco Scutaro across home plate. Rios added a stolen base and scored when Buck Coats drew a bases-loaded walk in first. Rios and Scutaro had two hits apiece, and Adam Lind, Wayne Lydon and Curtis Thigpen each chipped in one RBI.

Indians on the mound: Cleveland right-hander Fausto Carmona toiled through a 47-pitch effort against the Blue Jays, who chased the pitcher from the game after 1 2/3 innings. Carmona gave up two runs on five hits with one strikeout, one walk and one hit batsmen.

Blue Jays on the mound: Toronto right-hander Shaun Marcum, who projects to be the club's fourth starter this season, spun two shutout innings against the Indians in his spring debut. Marcum threw 25 pitches, including 16 for strikes, and finished with two strikeouts and one hit allowed.

Grapefruit League records: Indians 2-2-1; Blue Jays 2-3.

Up next: After a rough spring debut last week, Blue Jays right-hander Jesse Litsch will take the mound against the Yankees on Tuesday for his second start of Spring Training. Toronto hosts New York, which will send righty Phil Hughes to the hill, at 1:05 p.m. ET at Knology Park.
