Blasters Blank T-Bones in Joe Becker Debut

Updated:

Press Release Joplin Blasters:


The Blasters concluded their four-game exhibition schedule with a crowd-pleasing 2-0 victory over the Kansas City T-Bones Tuesday night at Joplin's newly minted Joe Becker Stadium.


Joplin (2-2) was playing at its refurbished and historic ballpark for the first time ever, and after a scoreless top of the first the Blasters plated the only runs they would need with one swing of the bat. A one-out walk put Oscar Mesa on at first. Yasser Gomez followed with a single to right. Mesa and Gomez later moved into scoring position on a double steal. With two outs, Austin Gallagher smoked a line drive double into the left field corner that brought home both base runners.

Kansas City (3-4), playing in its final exhibition tune-up, never had a base runner reach past second. Only two T-Bones advanced to second all night. Joplin starter Rob Tejeda worked a scheduled two innings and posted the win. Tejeda allowed just one hit and struck out two without a walk. Kansas City starter Blake Holovach suffered the loss. Holovach lasted four innings and gave up two earned runs on five hits with two strikeouts and three walks. Winston Abreu pitched a 1-2-3 ninth and earned the save. Abreu struck out two.

There were only 12 hits between the teams in the two-hour and twenty-three minute contest. Neither team committed an error. At the plate for Joplin, Austin Gallagher went 3-for-4 with two singles, a double, and two RBIs. Gallagher finished the exhibition slate 9-for-17. 

The Blasters inaugural regular season and home opener is this Thursday, May 21st against the Wichita Wingnuts. For 2015 ticket information and promotion specials at Joe Becker Stadium, call 417-437-6105 or visit the Blasters website at www.joplinblasters.com.
