Reynolds blanks Blues

The Portland Rockets stifled the Fort Wayne Blues’ offense on Thursday for an 8-0 victory at Runkle-Miller Field.

Tyler Reynolds had himself a night, giving up only two hits through seven dominant innings. He struck out eight batters while only giving up one walk in the ball game. The Blues only reached second base once in the entire game, when Juan Arcilla advanced on a passed ball.

Jared Holley pitched the final two innings, surrendering two hits without allowing a run.

Six of the Rockets’ (14-9) eight runs were scored in the first inning. Holley started the hit parade with a one-out triple. Zach Tanner plated a run with a single, while Peyton Smith and Magnuss Lee each drove two runs in with singles. The other run was scored when Ayden Lichtenstiger was hit by a pitch.

An extra run scored in the second thanks to a double by Joel Kennedy making it a 7-0 ballgame.

The final run scored in the eighth inning. Gavin Gleason hit a single to the left side of the infield, scoring Varin Ridgeway to win the game.

Holley and Cameron Pratt tied for the most hits in the game with three apiece.

Abelardo Paz suffered the loss after giving up seven runs on twelve hits in seven innings pitched.
