Staten Island Yankees Fall 8-4 to Tri-City in Series Finale

After winning the first two games against Tri-City, the Yankees were looking at a sweep and their first one since the beginning of the season. Their potent offense was on display in the first two games scoring 19 runs total. Timmy Robinson led the way with 6 hits in the first two games alone. Nick Solak, Drew Bridges, and Angel Aguilar would all hit home runs en-route to a blowout 13-7 victory on Friday.

The Yankees had their ace on the mound for the final game of the series, in Kolton Mahoney. He would go 6 innings, allowing 5 runs (4 earned). He is now 3-2 on the year, however, he still holds one of the best era’s in the league thus far.

Tri-City got on board in the top of the first as Stephen Wrenn hit his 9th home run of the year.  The Yankees countered in the bottom of the 2nd as Dom Thompson-Williams homered to right center field. Things turned for the worse in the top of the 3rd as Tri-City put up a 4 spot. Brauly Meija would double with the bases loaded bringing in 3 runs. Mahoney would also walk Ronnie Dawson with the bases loaded.

The Yankees would score in the bottom half of the inning, trimming the lead to 5-2,however they did not get much after that scoring only 1 run in the 6th and 8th innings. Despite this, they only 5-4going into the 9th, but Tri-City would answer, putting up 3 runs in the 9th. Claudio Custodio was the victim allowing those 9th inning runs. His era is now a dismal 5.19. The Yankees are now 21-14 on the year and still hold a 2 game lead over the Hudson Valley Renegades.

The Yankees will be back in action vs their cross-town rivals, the Brooklyn Cyclones today at 4. They look to continue their dominance over the Cyclones and increase their division lead.
