Dunedin Blue Jays vs Lakeland Flying Tigers (Win 7-2)
The day was led by offense but solid pitching kept the Tigers from flying to high. Luis Santos pitched a solid 5.2 innings and allowed only 2 runs on 5 hits. Santos also recorded 8 strike outs and only allowed 1 free pass. The 2 runs knocked Santos from the game in the 6, but Alberto Tirado came on to keep the Tigers down. He allowed only 3 hits over the remaining 3.1 innings.
The offense came out of the gate red hot. The D-Jays rocked Tigers pitcher Locke St. John for 7 runs in the first inning. St. John was chased from the game after recording only 2 outs. The Tigers bullpen would prove to be efficient and did not allow another run through the rest of the game. Christian Lopes went 3-5 with 2 doubles and a pair of RBIs. Catcher Jorge Saez recorded 2 RBIs also on a single. He would go 1-2 after walking 2 times in the game. The D-Jay’s performed well and have now won 4 in a row.
