Jays Ride Early Swarm to Win Over Chaska In RVL Section 3B

By PLB Admin

The PL Jays posted 5 in the 2nd on hits by Doherty, Olynyk, Geisler, Wartman, Cress and a tape measure solo shot to start the inning by Tim Garceau enroute to a 6-4 win at Chaska 7/1.  Chris Swiatkiewicz went the distance for the Jays walking 4 and striking out 4 while scattering 8 hits in the big victory to help the Jays in Section 3B Playoff seeding.  The Jays are now 4-9 in Section games with 2 remaining vs. Green Isle 7/9 and Shakopee 7/6.  The Jays also posted one in the 5th following a Sam Hoppe double that defied the fence by boucing back in off the outfield fence.  Hoppe would score on a fielders choice by Mullenbach and also tallied 2 sac bunts at the plate.  4 Jays had multi rip outings.  The Cubs threatened inthe 6th scoring 3 on 3 hits and a walk but Swiatkiewicz avoided damage in the 8th facing 3 and the 9th yielding 1on 2 hits and a walk.  He was strong throughout with a deadly mix that kept the dangerous Cub attack off balance and had some fine defense from the PL nine.  Dauwalter started and Matt Lane yielded 1 run thru 6 innings of relief on a great night in Chaska for the Red & Black.  The Jays return to the Vet in Prior Lake for non-League action with Minneapolis Wesley Homes Wednesday 7/2 730PM before a respite on the 4th, returning to action in PL VS Shakopee in 3B action on Sunday at 600PM.
