SI Yankees Drop Opener in Big Series Against Hudson Valley

The Staten Island Yankees woes continue as they suffered a 6-4 loss against the first place, Hudson Valley Renegades. They are now two games behind Hudson Valley in the standings.

The game remained scoreless until the bottom of the 4th, until Nathaniel Lowe singled home Garret Whitley to put Hudson Valley up 1-0. The Yankees would answer in the top of the 5th with a run of their own as they racked up three singles in a row, allowing Carlos Vidal to score. Hudson Valley would score another run in the bottom of the 6th putting them up 2-1. The Yankees would battle back, scoring two runs in the top of the 7th on a Nick Solak ground-rule double. The Yankees were now up 3-2, however, it would not be enough as the Renegades put up a four spot in the bottom half going up 6-3. The Yankees would score another run in the 8th but that was not enough, as they were shut out in the 9th.

Josh Roeder would get the loss in this one, his first of the season. He pitched two innings allowing a dismal five earned runs. Austin DeCarr pitched a great game going 5 innings, allowing one run and striking out seven batters.

Nick Solak and Eduardo Navas led the way with four of the Yankees six hits on the night. The once red-hot Yankees bats have cooled off as of late, scoring only seven runs in the last four games combined. They have lost four in a row overall.

The Yankees look to get back on the winning side tonight against Hudson Valley. Perez will be on the mound. Game time is set for 7 PM.
