Blue Jays right fielder Jose Bautista hit a 1-2 offering from Rays starter Taylor Guierrieri (0-1) in the third over the left center field fence to power the Jays to a 6-1 Grapefruit League victory.  Bautista’s homer could have been a grand slam except a wild pitch  two pitches earlier allowed Andy Burns to score from third with the games first run.  The Blue Jays are off on Monday before hosting the Orioles on Tuesday with a 1:07 PM first pitch.
