BMLN: A Good Day for the Jays in the AFL
In the sixth inning, Ryan Roberts grounded a first pitch infield single to the shortstop, but would not advance any further as he was forced out at second during the next at bat. With Peoria down 6-0 in the top of the seventh and a man on first base, Bubbie Buzachero was summoned into the game. Buzachero struck out Andy LaRoche on a 2-2 count and got Andre Ethier to ground out to end the inning.
The momentum continued into the bottom half of the inning. Adam Lind came to the playe with runners on first and second and on the first pitch which he saw, he lined a single into left field to drive in a run. One at bat later, with runners on the corners, Ryan Roberts lined a double to left field to score the second and final run of the game.
Buzachero also pitched the eighth inning and allowed a single and struck out a batter before being relieved in the ninth by Steve Andrade, who allowed a ground ball single and a walk in his inning of work.
Roberts finished 2-for-4 with a run batted in and is hitting .302 (13-43) in ten games with eight runs batted in. Lind finished the game 1-for-4 and is hitting just .067 (2-30) in nine games with two runs batted in. Buzachero went 1 2/3 innings and allowed a hit and struck out two batters, as Andrade allowed a hit and a walk in his inning of work.
