The GCL Blue Jays reliever Jared Carkuff got things done on just two pitches in the seventh against the Yankees West squad on Friday.  Relieving starter Lupe Chavez with none out and the bases loaded in the top of the seventh Carkuff went to work.  His first pitch induced the Yankee hitter to ground into a 5-2-3 double play.  His next offering had the Yankee player ground out 4-3.  Over the final two innings to earn his first save as a pro Carkuff allowed just two hits and lower his era to 1.42.
