The PL Jays have added one remaining regular season tuner, vs St Louis Park for 730PM Action with Park Townteam at PL Veterans Field (CHANGED FROM AWAY GAME).  The Jays hosted St Louis Park 5/16 at The Vet coming up short 17-11 in a slugfest.  St Louis Park is a long time opponent of the Jays dating back to the PL Jays Invitational Tournament in the 1990's and a perennial contender in Class A capturing the 2008 MBA Class A State Championship.  This FINAL regular season home game of 2009 will be DOLLAR DAY 2009 with $1 Admission and concession specials and drawings. UPDATE: PL Jays dropped 8-7 in 10 innings by St Louis Park.  Mullenbach started yielding 6 and Cress allowed 2 runs in the final 5 frames.  The Jays hung tough with the defending Class A Champ plating 2 in the first and runs in the 2nd, 4th, 6th, 8th and 9th but were unable to hang on and win in a tune up for both teams.  The Jays pounded out 15 hits and had 5 different players tally RBI.  Batting leaders were: Olynyk 3-5 2 RBI, Doherty 2-3 2 runs, Giles 2-3 2 RBI and Cress 2-4 2 runs scored.
