Forjet Shines as Volcanoes End 4-Game SkidSalem-News.com Sports
Salem-Keizer is still four games out of Hillsboro's pace atop the Northwest League South Division.
(VANCOUVER, B.C.) - Jason Forjet shined in his start at Vancouver, leading the Volcanoes to its first victory in the series, 6-1, Wednesday night at Nat Bailey Stadium.
Forjet was the first starter in this series to record a solid outing, going six innings allowing just one run on five hits and two walks with three strikeouts.
The Volcanoes offense also jumped out early to take the lead. Salem-Keizer scored a run in the top of the third inning as Tyler Hollick lead off the frame with a double and was scored on a play where Will Callaway reached safely on an error by Canadians third baseman Ryan Metzler.
Vancouver tied the game at one the next half inning as Franklin Baretto scored Roemon Fields.
The Volcanoes would break away and not look back in the fifth with a three-run rack. Callaway started off the inning with a single, followed by a Craig Massoni walk. C's starter Starlyn Suriel, who entered the game with a Northwest League starting pitchers best 1.13 ERA, had an errant throw to first base scoring Callaway. Geno Escalante singled in Massoni and Shilo McCall scored Relaford on a sac fly. Salem-Keizer lead at that point 4-1.
The Volcanoes added to their lead in the top of the 7th inning as Relaford and Escalante notched hits to score an additional two runs.
The Volcanoes bullpen combination of EJ Encinosa, Eury Sanchez, and Raymundo Montero was solid in the seventh, eighth, and ninth innings.
Salem-Keizer snapped a four-game losing streak with the win to improve to 9-11, still four games out of Hillsboro's pace atop the Northwest League South Division.
