Dunedin Blue Jays vs St. Lucie Mets (Loss 7-4)
The hit parade against Jays minor league pitching continues as the D-Jays got blasted for 15 hits. Justin Shafer thought things were going to go well after a good first inning but in the second he got tagged for 3 runs. His struggles would continue and ended up allowing 6 runs (3 of them earned) and was taken out. Jeremy Gabryszwski came on and pitched 3 innings and allowed only 1 run. The bullpen kept the Mets at 7 runs for the remainder of the game.
The D-jays offense awakened in the 7th and scored 3 runs. They would score another run in the 8th but would not score anymore. They were unable to keep the comeback alive as the Mets pen closed the door. Derrick Loveless had a stellar showing and went 3-4 with a pair of RBI. The entire D-Jays collected at least 1 hit with the only exception being catcher Jorge Saez. The 7 runs were just to much for the D-Jays to over come with a solid pitching turn out by the Mets.
Line of the night
Derrick Loveless 3-4 2 RBI
