Dunedin Blue Jays 9, Tampa Tarpons (NYY) 19
The Dunedin Blue Jays got out to a 7-run lead in the second inning but the pitching staff couldn’t hold on as the Tampa Tarpons woke up and destroyed the pitching staff to such a degree that Davis Schneider made his pitching debut.
The game started off poorly for the Blue Jays as Yosver Zulueta, making his professional debut, came out of the game with an injury after throwing just three pitches. He was relieved by Willy Gaston who was solid for a few innings but still allowed five runs (although just one was earned) over 3 2/3 innings, giving up four hits including a home run and three walks with four strikeouts. Gabriel Ponce came in for a rough 1 1/3 innings, allowing another nine runs to the Tarpons, giving up seven hits (including a home run) with four walks and two strikeouts. Thomas Ruwe made his Blue Jays debut and gave up three runs on a hit and two walks in 1/3 of an inning. Roither Hernandez struck out four in 1 2/3 innings, walking one and Davis Schneider gave up three hits including a home run, allowing two runs with a walk with one strikeout in the eighth inning. The Blue Jays made three errors including the second of the year by Miguel Hiraldo and one each by Mack Mueller and Orelvis Martinez.
The D-Jays had five walks in their seven-run second inning with Miguel Hiraldo (1/4, 2 RBI, BB, R) and Addison Barger (1/5, 2 RBI, 4 K) had two RBI each. Orelvis Martinez was 1/4 with a walk while Zach Britton was 1/3 with a walk, a double, an RBI and a run. Mack Mueller was also 1/4 with a walk, an RBI and a run. Jhon Solarte was 2/4 with a double, two RBI and a run. Eric Rivera was 0/2 but walked and scored three times, stealing two bases. Harry Ray also stole two bases, going 0/3 with a walk and a run.
