Jays 7th inning rally gives Tampa third straight loss

The Tampa Yankees concluded a three game series versus the Dunedin Blue Jays on Tuesday afternoon and despite having a 2-0 lead, were defeated 10-2 after the Jays had a commanding seventh inning rally.

RHP Nick Goody made his first appearance in a year as he rehabilitates from undergoing Tommy John surgery early in the 2013 season. Goody pitched just the first inning with no hits allowed and striking out 2 of the 3 batters he faced.

The Yanks’ runs came from consecutive singles by Jake Cave, Cito Culver and Eric Jagielo to start the game. Cave and Culver were each able to score and put Tampa up 2-0.

Tampa’s RHP Brett Gerritse (ERA 5.40) seemed to hold his own until he allowed a homer by the Jays’ Kevin Patterson in the top of the sixth. It was the 7th inning performance by Dunedin that sealed the T-Yanks fate. Gerritse seemed to struggled at the beginning of the inning and with runners on first and second, RHP Zach Woods (ERA 4.05) took the mound for Tampa. Unable to control the situation and then loading the bases, Woods was replaced by LHP Evan Rutckyj (ERA 3.86) but after all was said and done the Jays scored nine runs; Gerritse was charged with the loss (2-2, 5.40).

The Tampa Yankees will come back home to George M. Steinbrenner Field on Wednesday evening to start a four game series against the Lakleland Flying Tigers.
