Kyle Yates Continues Outstanding Pitching
Dunedin got a run back in the second inning, and tied it in the third when David Smith, who doubled in the inning, came around to score on a Joey Reiman single. Dunedin took the lead in the sixth inning when Joey Reiman, who led the inning off with a single, and moved to second on a Michael Snyder single, went to third and then scored on consecutive wild pitched. The Blue Jays added an insurance run in the seven inning, when Joey Reiman grounded into a force out at second base, with the bases loaded, allowing a run to score.
