The Jays collected 11 runs in the first three innings against Newcastle and cruised the rest of the way for an 11-3 final to improve their record to 19-8. With the win, Guthrie has won two games in a row and winners of six of their last 10 games.
Prior to the Newcastle game, the Jays had an unusual five-day break from action with mother nature playing her part.
The blue birds will have their work cut out for them in joining the 20 win club with the Irish. McGuinness has taken both games this season with 6-5 and 18-2 wins in early March and April, respectively.
