BRADENTON, FLA.–Right-hander Sean Reid-Foley got the win throwing four no hit innings as the Toronto Blue Jays SS beat the Pittsburgh Pirates SS 11-0 in Grapefruit League play.     Reid-Foley walked one and struck out four who along with three Blue Jay relievers allowed the Pirates just three hits.     Leading the Blue Jays offence was Anthony Alford who had two solo homers and a double while Bo Bichette went 3-4 with a two run homer.     In the fifth inning left fielder Billy McKinney added a solo homer to the Blue Jays hit parade on the first pitch he saw.   The funny thing was that the scoreboard at LEMCO Field had McKinney’s correct stats but the photo was of Devon Travis and it appeared no one noticed.     Also hitting the long ball was Jonathan Davis, a solo shot to left in the fifth to bring the Blue Jays total to five for the game.
     In the first inning Dalton Pompey fouled a pitch off his left knee then left the game after striking out looking.  He went to the clubhouse and it was later reported that he was okay.
