Dunedin Blue Jays vs Daytona Tortugas (loss 1-3)
Some how on a 3 error night the Tortugas only managed 3 runs. Most of this was due to good pitching as Shane Dawson was able to strike out 6 Tortugas hitters through 5.2 innings. He pitched well but threw at least one bad pitch to Joe Hudson who deposited the pitch over the fence for a 2-run home run. This would prove to bee all the offense that the Tortugas would need as they would end up winning 3-1. Chris Smith pitched well out of the bullpen and threw 2.1 innings and struck out 4 without allowing a hit. This held the Tortuga attack in check but their pitching was just to much for the D-Jay’s to gather any offense.
Matt Dean collected 2 of the 5 D-Jay hits and he collected the only RBI as he plated himself on a home run in the 5th inning. The quite bats were unable to take advantage of 4 walks and an error that were given to them through out the game. Derrick Loveless collected the only other extra base hit of the game as he popped a double in the 6th. Solid Tortuga pitching won this game and kept the D-Jay’s off the bases throughout the game.
Line of the game
Matt Dean 2-3 with a home run, a run scored, and an RBI
