Scott Copeland

Settling the Score: Wednesday’s results

58 Comments

Blue Jays right-hander Scott Copeland was terrific in his first major league start Wednesday afternoon against the Marlins, firing seven innings of one-run ball in a 7-2 win at Rogers Centre in Toronto. The 27-year-old former 21st-round pick walked none, whiffed four, and scattered six hits over his seven frames. Justin Smoak, Josh Donaldson, and Russell Martin each went 2-for-4 and combined for five RBI.

It’s the eighth straight victory for the Jays, who are now just three games back of the first-place Yankees in the American League East standings. Copeland was sent to Triple-A Buffalo after the game, but he should get another shot soon.

Wednesday’s matinee assignment was only meant to be a spot start for Copeland.
