The GCL Blue Jays scored 5 runs in the middle innings and held on for a 6-3 victory. Cliff Brantley, Juan Tejada and Edwin Fuentes each had multi-hit days that made a winner out of Grayson Huffman (first professional win). Huffman has not allowed a run over 3 games (2 starts), while showing good command with 2BB and 8K…..equally impressive is that he has only allowed one hit. Mickey Storey started the game and pitched 2.0IP of 3 hit ball. Freddy Rodriguez hit his first professional home run in the 7th after he took over for Cliff Brantley in leftfield.

Also of note: Shane Opitz made another rehab start for the GCL Blue Jays… 6 games he is hitting .167/.167/.333.
