MiLB Recap – Hobson, McFarland lead Fisher Cats to win

3 of 4

Mandatory Credit:

Dunedin Blue Jays @ Tampa Yankees (Double Header)

Game 1 (Loss 5-1)

Luis Santos got off to a good start but lost it in the 3rd inning.  His line ended up having 8 hits that were good for 5 Yankee runs over 4.2 innings.  This hole would prove to be too deep for the D-Jays to climb out of.  The D-Jays would only gather 4 hits and a run over the 7 innings game.  Dawel Lugo collected the only RBI on a single in the 4th.

Line of the game

No standouts in a rough game for the D-Jays

Game 2 (Win 7-5)

Pitchers struggled in Tampa Wednesday.  Yankee starting pitcher Gabriel Encinas got tagged for 5 runs in the first 2 innings and was knocked out of the game.  Mean while Jeremy Gabryzwski pitched 5 innings but allowed 4 runs on 8 hits.  The D-Jays bullpen would be the difference over the 7 innings game.  The Jays would only allow one more run through the remaining innings where the Yankee pen allowed 2 runs after taking over in the 3rd inning.

Timely hitting would lead to the D-Jays runs.  9 hits were perfectly placed to score the 7 runs.  The D-jays collected 2 extra base hits and raked singles.  The top 4 in the lineup all collected a hit and a run scored to help lead the offense.  J.D. Davis collected 2 stolen bases to and an RBI also.

Line of the game

Solid team effort as a whole but Martin Medina 2-3 with a run scored, a double, and an RBI
