MiLB Recap – D-jays win 4th in a row! Boyd Debut

3 of 4

Mandatory Credit:

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.
