TheVAB Jets came out flat and battled from behind most of the day losing 7-0 and12-8 to Treasure Valley Junior College from Oregon. Game 1 saw Luke Whelpton start on the mound going 4 innings allowing 5 hits, 3 runs, 2 K’s and 6 K’s. Next action is tomorrow in Boise vs a very tough College of Southern Idaho team. Game 2 saw some more offense but the Jets could not hold TVCC late in the game.
