MiLB Recap – Cole on fire, D-Jays squash comeback

3 of 3

Mandatory Credit:

Dunedin Blue Jays @ Tampa Yankees (Win 8-5)

An early lead in this one turned into a constant rally for the Tampa Yanks.  Alonzo Gonzalez got the ball rolling well for the D-Jays as he pitched a solid 4 innings.  He allowed 6 hits but was able to scatter them through out the innings and came up big when he needed an out.  He did not allow a run through his 4 innings.  The D-Jays bullpen did not fair as well as Gonzalez as they would surrender all 5 runs and allow the Yankees to think they were still in this game.  Griffin Murphy and Brady Dragmire would surrender all the runs.  Wil Browning would come on and finally slam the door shut in the 9th after the Yanks scored 3 in the inning.

Derrick Loveless helped get the offense going as he popped his 10th homer of the season with a runner on in the 4th.  Loveless showed no love for Tampa pitching as he would go on to have an amazing day as he went 2-3 with the homer and a double while driving in 2 and scoring twice.  Jason Leblebijian also had a banner day as he rocked 4 RBI’s in a stellar 3-4 with 2 doubles in his performance.  The solid offense picked up the bullpen while they held the off to win this one.

Line of the game

Jason Leblebijian 3-4 with 2 doubles and 4 RBI’s
