The hits kept on coming. And coming. And coming. The Toronto Blue Jays' new-look lineup lived up to its billing against Phillies lefty John Lannan, who allowed 12 runs in four innings of work in his final Grapefruit League start. 

Lannan allowed two home runs to Blue Jays catcher J.P. Arencibia and a triple to Jose Reyes as Toronto finished with six extra base hits against him. 

Lannan, who will enter the season as the Phillies No. 5 starter, had pitched relatively well up until Monday afternoon's start.

"For most of the day I was up in the zone and they take advantage," Lannan said. "I got my butt kicked and you move on."

In Lannan's previous Grapefruit League outing he pitched five scoreless innings with four strikeouts against the Rays. The lefty was pragmatic about his rocky outing against the Blue Jays. 

"It's that time of the spring where your arm isn't as quick as it needs to be," he said.
