Summer Collegiate Baseball: Juengel’s double helps Blues beat Vegas

Matt Juengel’s three-run double capped a four-run fifth inning to help the San Luis Obispo Blues beat Team Vegas Baseball Club 6-3 on Saturday in Las Vegas.

Dylan Gavin singled in Mike Kindel to get the Blues on the board in the third, but San Luis Obispo trailed 3-1 after three innings.

The Blues (5-6) got an insurance run in the eighth on a Chad Christensen RBI single.

Closer Sean Johnson allowed a leadoff triple in the ninth before striking out the next three batters to close the game.

Santa Maria Valley Packers 12, San Luis Obispo Rattlers 8

The San Luis Obispo Rattlers allowed five runs in the ninth inning to fall at SLO Stadium.

Leading 8-7 and needing just three outs to win, Todd Simko allowed a leadoff double and a walk before giving way to Rattlers closer Marc Damon.

Damon struck out the first batter but the tying run eventually scored on a throwing error on a double-steal attempt.

The Packers got a bunt single to take the lead and scored three more runs before retiring the Rattlers (7-5) in order to close out the game.
