Blue Jays blank Burlington, Rays shut out Greeneville

BLUEFIELD — Jeremy Gabryszwski pitched six scoreless innings and the Blue Jays’ bullpen allowed one Burlington hit over the last three innings, while Nico Taylor was 3-for-3 at the plate to lead the Bluefield Blue Jays to an 8-0 win over the Burlington Royals, Sunday evening at Bowen Field.

Bluefield’s runs came in pairs, in the  fourth, sixth, seventh and eighth innings. In the fourth Anderson was hit by a pitch. Back-to-back singles by Seth Connor and Christian Lopes loaded the bases. Santiago Nessy grounded into a double play, but Anderson scored and Conner went to third. Taylor then singled to bring home Conner and make it 2-0.

The Jays added another deuce in the sixth. Again it was Anderson who got it started with a singled to center. He was erased on Conner’s fielder’s choice. Conner raced home on Lopes’ double to left. Again enter Taylor with a single to right that scored Lopes to make it 4-0.

In the seventh D.J. Jones legged out an infield single to third, stole second, went to third on Jorge Vega-Rosada’s fly out to right. Anderson then slammed his third home run of the season to make it 6-0.

The Jays were not finished. Nessy homered to open the eighth. Taylor and Dickie Joe Thon both walked and a ground out sent Taylor to third. Vega-Rosada hit a fielder’s choice that scored Taylor with the game’s final run.

Gabryszwski got the win, while Les Williams, Colby Broussard and Wil Browning each worked a scoreless inning of relief for Bluefield.

Yender Carmano, Burlington’s starter, pitched seven innings and was tagged with the loss.
