Gabler Lifts Jays Past Gaylord

Journeyman Billy Gabler helped to power the Prior Lake Jays past the Gaylord Islanders in a 2-0 win on Tuesday night.

Gabler, having made multiple appearances already in the 2004 season started on the mound for the Jays.  The Islanders, who have been struggling to wrangle hits much like the Jays, came to this matchup with a league record of 4-5 and hoping to lift themselves to the .500 mark.

A game that was played in just over two hours at beautiful Welsh Field in Gaylord set the stage for what would be considered a photo finish and a top performance for the Jays who are 4-1 in league play.

Throwing a complete game, Gabler allowed only two hits.  The Jays mustered four hits: one each by Casey Brinkman and Aaron Johnson, and two by right-fielder Chris Rooney.  In addition, Rooney displayed his lightning speed with two stolen bases.

Gabler's ability to mix rhythm with pitch speed and pitch type proved to be a detriment to the Islanders who knocked on two hits.

The Jays are back in action on Thursday night when they will face the Victoria Vics at Veteran's Field.  First pitch is slated for 7:30 PM.
