MiLB Recap – Herd Bats awaken, Cats win late

Dunedin Blue Jays vs Clearwater Threshers (Loss 8-9)

A rough night for pitchers in general in Dunedin Sunday.  Both starting pitchers would allow 5 earned runs to kick off the slug fest.  Alonzo Gonzalez gave up 4 runs in the first inning for the D-Jays.  This would set a trend for the Jays pitchers for the game.  Every pitcher for the Jays allowed at least 1 run.  The offense for the Jays was the only reason they were still in this game.  Two big home runs for the Jays kept things going.  Anthony Alford and Matt Dean would each collect 2 run homers.  The third homerun by Jorge Saez almost capped off an impressive comeback as he hit a solo home run in the 9th.  The Jays would then fall just short in the 9th of completing the comeback.

Line of the game

Anthony Alford 2-5 with a 2 run homer, 3 runs scored, and 2 RBIs
