Dunedin Blue Jays @ Lakeland Flying Tigers (suspended at 1-1)

This game was suspended due to rain in the 16th inning.  To much bonus baseball for a 1-1 score I think personally.  The D-Jays had 12 hits through 16 innings and could not put enough together all at once.  The lone RBI was by Matt Dean on a fielders choice.  The pitching for both teams was the story of this game.  Sean Reid-Foley pitched 5 innings of shut out ball and struck out 2.  Jeremy Gabryszwzki came on in the 6th and pitched 6 innings.  I don’t think he expected to pitch that long but allowed only 1 run and struck out 6.  Brandon Dragmire kept things rolling as he threw 3 shutout innings also.  Then to top it off Albeto Tirado came on and added on 2 more shutout innings.  I love a pitchers duel as much as the next person but I can not imagine hanging out for that long at a ball park with only 20 hits in the game.

Line of the game

Sean Reid-Foley 5 innings, 2 hits, 0 runs, 2 strike outs

Really the whole pitching staff thus far
