SLO Blues split after dropping make-up

The San Luis Obispo Blues summer collegiate baseball team had a good news, bad news kind of day.

The Blues used an eight-run seventh inning to blow open a close game in a 10-1 victory over the Conejo Oaks on Sunday. The win came just a few hours after the Blues gave up a run in the bottom of the 10th inning to lose 8-7 in the completion of a Friday game that was suspended by darkness.

In the second game, Adam Frazier, Dylan Gavin and Tanner Witt each drove in two runs for the Blues (25-11, 16-10 California Collegiate League).

After allowing a first-inning run, the Blues took the lead in the top of the sixth on a two-run home run by Gavin. The Blues scored eight times in the seventh on four hits, three walks, two hit batters and a wild pitch.

Blues starter Tom Barry (5-2) pitched seven innings, allowing a run on five hits and three walks. He struck out six.

In the suspended game, Conejo (20-16, 14-15 CCL) won on a walk-off single by pitcher Kenny Hatcher, who also earned the win with a scoreless inning of relief.

Gavin and Zac Elgie had two RBI apiece for the Blues in that game.
