Doug Fister struck out five over the first three innings. He also gave up four earned runs in a 4-2 loss to the Blue Jays on Saturday at Florida Auto Exchange Stadium.

Fister left in the fourth inning after loading the bases with none out. Jose Bautista, who hit a two-run home run in the first inning, doubled in the fourth. Fister then gave up back-to-back walks to Adam Lind and Mark DeRosa to load the bases. The Jays scored two runs in the inning after Fister was replaced by Trevor Bell.

With the four earned runs allowed to the Blue Jays, Fister has given up nine earned runs over seven innings this spring.

"I felt good," Fister said. "First time all spring I felt like I had much behind it, ability to control where it's going. But, you know, I didn't execute today."

Fister termed it "a good and bad day."

"For me, today was trying to get a feel, trying to work on the cutter, trying to work on the curveball. Felt like I had some control with the sinker for a while. Still need to focus on that. That's going to be one of the focuses for next outing."
