MiLB Recap – Hoffman Debut, Nolan bomb

3 of 4

Mandatory Credit:

Dunedin Blue Jays vs Tampa Yankees (Win 6-5)

A night full of expectations in Dunedin ended in a win.  Jeff Hoffman made his professional debut Wednesday now that he has recovered from Tommy John surgery.  Hoffman got off to a good start with a shut out first inning but then derailed in the second.  Hoffman allowed 4 runs in the second and that included a 2 run homer to Kyle Higashoika.  Hoffman stayed on the mound for another 3 innings and did not allow another run after the 4 run 2nd inning.  Jeremy Gabryszwski kept the D-Jays in the game by pitching a solid 4 innings in relief.  He allowed only a home run to Abiatal Avelino and struck out 7.  Offensively the D-Jays scattered 12 hits to score 6 runs.  Dawel Lugo provided the pop in the 9th inning to walk off the Yankees.

Line of the night

Jeremy Gabryszwski 4 IP, 7 K’s, 2 hits allowed, 1 ER, 0 BB

Matt Dean 2-4 with a double, 1 Run, 1 RBI
