Kamloops, BC –
The Jets played their final game in Kamloops today in a consolation game against the Fraser Valley, B.C. Chiefs and won 7-0. The Jets played well throughout the game led by outstanding pitching from Zach Mayo, Logan Seifrit, and Anthony McKinley. The game moved at a rapid pace due to both teams pitchers working quickly and efficiently. Zach Mayo picked up his first win of the spring season throwing 4 outstanding innings allowing a single hit, no runs, no walked batters, and he struck out five (4 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 5 K). Logan Seifrit followed and continued the Jets dominance on the mound throwing 3 innings, allowing only a single baserunner on a dropped third strike. His line would read 3 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 5 K. Anthony McKinley came on to work a scoreless 8th inning throwing well in the process – 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 0 K. In the Jets past 22 innings of work their pitching staff only allowed 4 hits, and 2 earned runs.
Offensively, the Jets scattered 2 runs and 4 hits through a quick first five innings of the game before breaking out for 2 in the sixth and 3 in the seventh inning. They ended up scoring 7 runs on 11 hits against a depleted Fraser Valley pitching staff. The Jets continue to grow offensively and that was witnessed in more aggressive approaches and the hitters putting themselves in better counts to succeed.
Zarowny 2-4 3B 1 run RBI, Kendall 1-2, Balog 0-2, Hendriks 1-3 BB 2 runs RBI, Adams 1-3 1 run HBP, Fagnan 3-4 1 run, Benn 0-1, McGeein 1-3 2 RBI, Lutz 0-3 2 RBI, Wallace 0-1, Mazurkewich 0-2 1 run BB, St. Jean 2-2 3B 1 run BB
