Morrow has strong start as Blue Jays' split squad beats Canada junior national team 12-2

Brandon Morrow gave up four hits over three innings, Jose Bautista drove in a run and a Toronto Blue Jays' split squad beat the Canadian junior national team 12-2 Tuesday.

Making his second start and third appearance of spring training following a season-ending forearm injury last May, Morrow allowed two runs — one earned — walked three and struck out two during a 46-pitch outing. He gave up five runs and six hits in three innings against Pittsburgh on March 5.

Bautista went 1 for 2 with a double and a first-inning sacrifice fly off 17-year-old Ben Onyshko.

Colby Rasmus returned to the Blue Jays' lineup after missing seven games with a stiff neck. He was 0 for 2 with a walk.
