Las Vegas –
The Jets broke out of a minor funk today in a big way beating Bishop Gorman High School’s #2 squad 15-3 today in a mercy-rule shortened 5 inning game. Anchored by an explosive offensive performance and solid pitching, the Jets put together as complete a game as they have played all season long. Blair Balog got the start and the win for the Jets working his way through 4 solid innings scattering 7 hits and only a single earned run. Greg Adams would come in after him to work a clean 5th to finish the game.
The Jets would score early and often plating runs in each of their five offensive innings. Each of the 9 starting position players would record at least a single hit. The outburst was led by 8 and 9 hitters Travis Wallace and Marc St. Jean who each went 4 for 4 with four base hits apiece and 4 RBI’s between them. In a freak play, Mitch McGeein hit a home run in the 6-run 3rd inning and broke an aluminum bat in doing so. In total, the Jets would bang out 18 hits. Defensively the Jets shored up having one of their better days yet this year committing only a single error and making numerous good plays all around the infield.
The Jets now travel to Phoenix, AZ in the morning where they will hold a practice and play a game in the next three days at the Seattle Mariners Spring Training Complex in Peoria, AZ. The win brings the Jets record now to 8-5-1 on the spring season.
