Jays romp over Twins


FORT MYERS, Fla.—Shortstop Bo Bichette had two home runs and went 3-for-5 as the Toronto Blue Jays routed the Minnesota Twins 10-1 yesterday afternoon in Grapefruit League action.

First baseman Rowdy Tellez also had two homers—a three-run shot in the first inning and a two-run blast in the sixth—for the Jays (9-6).

Ryan Borucki struck out three and gave up five hits over five scoreless innings as Toronto's starter.

First baseman Tyler Austin had three hits and an RBI for Minnesota (8-7).

Bichette is one of the Jays' top prospects and his solid performance was a welcome relief after it was announced that Vladimir Guerrero Jr., considered the top minor-leaguer in baseball, would miss the next three weeks.

Toronto general manager Ross Atkins told media before the game that Guerrero was strained his left oblique in a game against the Pittsburgh Pirates on Friday.
