Placeholder Image

The Blue Jays came close to avenging an opening-day loss to the Twins but left Israel Rosenblum stranded at third in the bottom of the sixth inning, ending the game in a 4-4 tie in Spreckels Park Little League minor action.
Rosenblum (3 for 3, double) did all he could to erase that tie, lacing a two-out single to right field in the sixth. He stole second and third base only for Twins reliever Jayden Mordes to escape the jam with a strikeout.
The Blue Jays built an early 3-0 lead. Rosenblum (single), Jake O’Neill (walk) and Marcus Davenport (walk) scored after reaching in succession to start the first inning.
The Twins bounced back and took a 4-3 lead on runs by Ryan Fox, Daniel Pardes, Sam Perez (2 for 3) and Carter Thornton.
The Blue Jays tied the game on an RBI double in the fourth inning by Noah Valdivia, driving in Dominic Wilson from first base after he drew a leadoff walk.
Rays 12, Blue Jays 4
The Rays scored five runs in the first and fifth innings.
Christopher Stackpole closed out the game on the mound for the Rays and was 2 for 2 with a double and a run. Cody Camarena (three runs), Julian Ruiz (run), Cody Castaneda (run) and Felix Hosmer (triple) were all 1 for 1 for the Rays. Jacob Morrow was 1 for 3 with two runs and Sean Elder and Joseph Guillory each scored a run.
Rosenblum was 2 for 3 with two runs for the Blue Jays. Wilson went 2 for 2 with a run, Valdivia (1 for 2) had a two-run double and Elijah Hernandez scored a run.

Collins Schluer (RBI, two runs) drove in the first run for the Orioles in the first inning and started on the hill, going two innings and striking out two.
