Jets open the fall season with a victory!

Vauxhall, AB –

The VAB Jets opened the 2010/2011 season with a 3-2 victory over the PBA Dawgs.  It was beginning of Spirit Week at VHS and VES so a sell-out crowd made a very good high school baseball atmosphere.  The high school rock band also played for the crowd between innings.

Chad Hodges started on the mound going 4 innings earning the victory allowing 1 hit, 0 run, 4 K’s and 0 BB’s.  Anthony McKinley threw a solid 5th inning allowing 2 hits, 1 run with 2 K’s and 0 BB’s.  Archie Davis threw a good 6th inning allowing 2 hits, 1 run with 1 K and 0 BB’s.  Ben Dartnell earned the save going 1 inning allowing 1 hit, 0 runs with 1 K and 1 BB.

Offensively, the Jets were led by Jeremie Fagnon who was 1 for 4 with a double and run scored.  Mitch McGeein was 1 for 2 with a solo HR.  Brendan Hendriks was 1 for 2 with a double and an RBI.  Curtis Mazurkewich was 1 for 2 with a run scored.  Konner Lutz was 1 for 1 with a double.  Travis Wallace was 1 for 2.  Mark St. Jean was 1 for 3 with an RBI.  Tyson Zarowny was 2 for 3 to round out a well balanced offense.

The victory starts the Jets off with a 1-0 record this fall and next action is Friday night in Belgrade, Montana vs Big Sky Seniors.

Good luck to the 3 Mizuno Camp Invitees.  Seifrit, McKinley and Spencer will be attending the Mizuno Camp in Toronto at the Rogers Centre.
