Jays cruise to victory in home opener against Quincy
Friday, April 1, 2011
Since opening the season two weeks ago, the Jefferson City Jays had been waiting to get back on the field.
On Thursday, they got to release all that pent-up energy as the Jays put together a 13-hit effort in an 8-1 win in their home opener against Quincy, Ill., at Vivion Field.
“The kids had a lot of energy and excitement to play,” Jays coach Brian Ash said. “We’ve been practicing for two weeks after our first game and it was about time to see a different opponent other than ourselves.”
Quincy probably didn’t like it. The Blue Devils did have their chances early, as Jays starter Sean Waldrop gave up a leadoff double in the first and second innings.
