Astros Drop 2013 Season Opener At Bluefield

The Greeneville Astros opened their 2013 season with a 5-0 loss to the Bluefield Jays Thursday night.

Jays' pitchers Chase DeJong and Shane Dawson combined for the shutout. DeJong earned the win, throwing the first five scoreless innings and Dawson took the save, tossing the final four innings.

Marc Wik led off the game with the first hit of the Astros' season when he doubled to left center. Jack Mayfield looked to move Wik to third with a fly ball to right but Bluefield right fielder Jesus Gonzalez had other ideas when he fired to third and picked off the base runner for the first of four double plays executed by the Jays.

Jorge Saez earned the Jays' first hit of the season in the second inning and was scored by Mitch Nay's double to right field. Nay was moved in by Matt Dean who singled to center as Bluefield took a 2-0 lead.

Both of those runs were against Enderson Franco, who took the loss for Greeneville. Over the next three innings, Franco gave up only three hits and no runs. In the fourth inning Franco retired the side on four pitches.

Frederick Tiburico, Jordan Miller and Gerardo Ramirez finished the game on the mound for the Astros, each throwing one inning.

In the eighth, the Jays' offense got going as they added three more runs to create the final margin. Eric Arce highlighted the frame with a three-run triple to right field.

The Astros will be at Bluefield Friday and Saturday before their home opener on Sunday against Elizabethton.
