ST14: Rangers drop game to Blue Jays, 6-2

No time at all today to write a commentary – I’m way too busy today at work. I barely have the time to do this. In fact, the only reason I’m even updating at all is I wanted to have something online about Lee Stevens being dealt away today. :)
DUNEDIN, Florida (Ticker) — Charlie Greene hit a two-run homer and DeWayne Wise doubled in two runs as the Toronto Blue Jays defeated the Texas Rangers, 6-2, in a Grapefruit League game overshadowed by a three-team trade involving the two clubs.
The Blue Jays acquired Brad Fullmer from Montreal and sent David Segui and cash to Texas, which shipped Lee Stevens to the Expos.
Segui started the game as the designated hitter but was removed in the sixth inning after the deal was completed. Stevens was the starting first baseman before leaving for a pinch hitter in the sixth.
Wise’s two-run double in the fifth inning came off former Blue Jay Tim Crabtree, who took the loss after he was tagged for three runs and five hits in two innings.
Greene allowed the Blue Jays to move out to a 5-2 lead in the seventh inning and Kevin Witt added a solo homer in the eighth.
Clayton Andrews pitched four scoreless innings in relief for the victory. Starter Chris Carpenter allowed one run and four hits in two innings.
Mike Simms hit a solo homer in the seventh inning for Texas.
Doug Davis got the start for the Rangers and hurled three scoreless innings, striking out four.
