Ho-hum.

Another day, another hit for Austin Jackson. Actually, several. Two triples are the headliner, of course. But he added to that an infield single. Starting to believe he's living up to that "exciting" billing Baseball America gave him this offseason. If only I could see some of it! Oh, and MLB.com's Jason Beck tweets Jackson is leading the Grapefruit League in hits.

Rick Porcello threw another four innings of scoreless ball, allowing two hits and two walks while striking out one.

Most of the pitchers had good days actually. Phil Coke, Eddie Bonine, Joel Zumaya, Fu-Te Ni, Robbie Weinhardt ... there really wasn't anything all that eventful there to report. Daniel Schlereth got lit up, but he was almost certainly going to be bound for Triple-A anyway.

These boys can score some runs

I hope it translates into the season
