Game 2 saw the Jets come out on top with a 2-0 victory. Brandon Petite was very solid in his start to earn the victory on the mound going 5 innings allowing 2 hits, 0 runs, 0 BB’s and 6 K’s. JC Paquin earned the save in relief going 2 innings allowing 2 hits, with 0 BB’s and 2 K’s. Offensively, Jean-Guy Bilodeau led the way offensively going 2 for 3 with a triple and double and 2 RBI’s. Mark Clauson was also 2 for 4. This was most likely the most complete game the Jets have played all season.
With the split the Jets now have 2 wins and 3 losses. Next action is Saturday March 29th in Twin Falls, Idaho starting at 5 pm.
Several Jet players are pretty banged up so getting healthy is a major priority this coming week.
