Blue Sox Start the Season with a Win Behind a Solid Pitching Performance

It was opening night in Utica as the Blue Sox handled the Adirondack Trail Blazers pretty swiftly in a 7-2 victory. 

The Blue Sox out-hit the Trail Blazers seven to six, but the key factor in the outcome of the lopsided score line was the four errors on Adirondack accounting for an unearned run and several runners put on base.  The Trail Blazer’s pitchers didn’t help the cause, as they totaled six walks over the span of five pitchers, Cashman, Hardy, Thomas, Larson, and VanBeber.  Kyle Cashman went 5 Innings pitched, allowing two runs on five hits, no walks, along with two strikeouts, and got booked with the loss.

On the other hand, the pitching for the Blue Sox was superb.  Utica starter and winning pitcher Jared Tietgen didn’t allow the Trail Blazers any room for their offense to thrive.  Tietgen threw six strong, shutout innings allowing only three hits, four walks, and he tallied two strikeouts. 

On the offensive side of game, the Blue Sox took advantage of the Trail Blazer errors in the fifth inning and getting on the board first leading 2 to 0.  They later would take advantage of the five walks by Larson and VanBeber in the bottom of the eighth inning adding four more runs.  Taylor Olmstead returning Center Fielder from last season lead the charge for the Sox.  Olmstead went two for four with two RBI’s on two singles, and he also had a stolen base.

With the loss Adirondack falls to an even 1 and 1 on the season.  They travel to Oneonta to take on the Outlaws tomorrow, first pitch is at 7:05PM. 

With the win Utica starts the season 1 and 0.  They are back home again tomorrow night as they welcome the Onondaga Flames, first pitch is at 6:35PM.
