The PL Jays downed the Green Isle Irish in the opening game of Section 3B seeding games (10 Total) for 2009. The game was a tight pitching dual in the early innings until the Jays swarmed for 6 in the 5th to take a 7-1 lead for Rookie Pitcher Kyle Zweber who yielded 1 hit. The key play was a GI error on a hit by 3rd baseman John Somrock that cleared the bases. Multiple great plays by the red and black in support of Zweber and Marshall Mullenbach (8th & 9th) led to a 10-4 final score. NEXT ACTION: The Jays will host the Chaska Cubs at 4PM on Sunday 6/7 in a 7 inning RVL game which will be followed by a 9 inning Section 3B Seeding tilt at about 615PM. 2 Games for the price of 1!
