State Tournament

The PL Jays recent losing steak came to a halt in recent River Valley League action in Fairfax & Arlington on Sunday 6/8.  Both opponents played good games and hung close until late Swarms gave the Jays the cushion needed to bag 2 big road wins.

In Game 1 at Fairfax pitcher Jesse Sheidecker faced 30 batters in 8 innings yielding 2 hits, walking 2 and striking out 3 enroute to bagging the win.  He also knocked in the first 2 Jays runs with Pete Hoffer & Travis Johnson on in the 5th in the Jays 6-0 Win.  Marshall Mullenbach threw the 9th inning, giving up no runs.

In Game 2 at Arlington Travis Johnson got the nod on the hill and struck out 6 in 6 innings work with the score 2-1 PL but got no decision as the A's tied the game at 2 in Rob Tschimperles 1st inning of relief.  The Jays scored 2 in the 6th after Arlington posted 1 in the 4th inning.  Tschimperle struck out 1 in 3 innings work and picked up the win.  Firstbaseman Scott Geisler was 2-5 at the plate scoring twice and knocking one in while Tim Garceau was 2-5 with 1 run scored and 3 RBI.
