The PL Jays have had some close games of late losing at Dundas 2-1 (10 innings) and losing to the Minneapolis Lakers 2-1 in PL on Friday 7/18.  The “new look” Jays who supplemented a depleted roster with a record 11 signings in 2014 are starting to find answers in one of the most challenging MBA Class B Sections.  Section 3B feature 3 in top 6 of the State Class B poll  and features recent Runner Up Shakopee 2013, Champion Victoria 2012 and Shakopee won 2009 & 2010 Championships.

The Jays 0-3 Section start was not unexpected given the influx of new players and the Sunday 7/20 4-3 WIN over previous State poll #1 team Victoria gives local fans optimism as the stretch run in Section 3B seeding games (9 total).  Trailing 3-1, the Jays mounted a comeback in the bottom of the 9th inning capped by a lasered gap single scoring 2 with 2 outs and bases loaded by Scott Geisler.  Chris Kelly got the win in relief pitching a scoreless 9th with 1 K and 1 hit.  TJ Larson, fresh off a professional 2 game stint with the Windy Cindy Thunderbolts, struck out 13 Vics (26 K in last 13 innings).  The Jays now sit split with Victoria at 1-1 while 0-1 to both Shakopee and Chaska in seeding for the best of 5 game series playoffs.

NOTE: Due to recent flooding, Chaska Athletic Park is CLOSED for 2014. Chaska home games will be played at Veterans Park Field 800 Victoria Drive, Chaska, MN.  Concessions are available.

NEXT GAME: HOST Chaska Cubs in Prior Lake 730PM Friday 7/25
