Dunedin Blue Jays vs Brevard County Manatees (Loss 12-3)
Any night when you have 2 pitchers give up 6 earned runs each you know that it has been an off night. D-Jays starting pitcher Jairo Labourt got hit hard over 5 innings of work and allowed 6 runs on 8 hits. He also did not help himself as by walking 3 batters. Alberto Tirado would come on in relief and throw a solid 3 innings of work to no allow a runs. Once Tirado left the game the wheels came completely off the track as Matt Dermody would be left out in the last inning to get three outs but allowed 6 runs before it was over.
Offensively there was not much cooking. A couple timely hits by Mitch Nay and L.B. Dantzler would plate the only D-Jay runs. All 3 runs came in the 6th inning which looked to be the start of a possibly rally at the time. Going into the last 3 innings the score was 3-6. The solid bullpen showing by the Manatees coupled with a blow out 9th inning allowed solidified the D-Jays loss.
Line of the game
Alberto Tirado 3 IP, 3 hits, 0 runs, 1 Walks, 1 K’s
