Salmon Limousine Services Rays 8 vs. Iron Horse Transport Blue Jays 5
The Rays opened their playoff run with a convincing 8-5 victory over the battling Blue Jays. This was a total team effort, and each and every team member helped the Rays win the game. Pitching was huge, with Jordan Greiff and Jacob Seidenberg pitching 3 dominant innings apiece, each with an abundance of strikeouts. Hitting stars came from up and down the lineup, with key hits and RBIs by Jordan Greiff (1 RBI and multiple hits), Matt O’Connor (momentous 2-out, 2-RBI double in the 1st inning), Jack Tucker (1 RBI double), Brian Volk (game changing 2 RBI double with the bases loaded and the Rays clinging to a 3-2 lead) and Ryan Hodes (who followed Brian’s big hit with a huge hit of his own, knocking in 2 more runs). Excellent defense was also displayed all over the field, with special mention to Jared Schwartz who, while playing 3B, teamed with Brian Volk to nail a stealing runner at third in the 6th inning, squelching a late rally. Other defensive gems were turned in by Michael Telsey (great catch of pop-up with the sun in his eyes), Joey Jacobs, Jordan Greiff (stabbing hot shots while pitching), Jacob Seidenberg (great pick at 3B and throw to 1B for an out), Jared Hodes and Karan Thadhani. Next stop for the Rays - Championship Saturday!
