The Upsala Blue Jays were scheduled to play a pair of league games this past weekend. On Saturday afternoon, the St. Stephen Steves were scheduled to visit Varsity Field in Upsala, however, Mother Nature was the only one who would win on this day, as a steady rain throughout the day led to the cancellation of this game. A make-up date has yet to be determined.
On Sunday, Upsala was scheduled to play at Flensburg Due to wet field conditions in Flensburg, the game was moved to Upsala. Upsala would prevail in this one by a 12-0 final. Eric Lampert and Brandon Welinski both homered for Upsala, while Brock Cichon and Brady Burggraff each contributed 3 hits. Josh Genske had 2 hits for Flensburg. The win moved Upsala to 5-0 in league play, and the loss dropped Flensburg to 0-5 in league play. Upsala is currently tied a top the Victory League West Division with the Sobieski Skis who are also 5-0.
