‘Gades Complete Sweep of SI Yanks

 STATEN ISLAND, NY – An intimate crowd of 1,905 was on hand at the Richmond County Bank Ballpark to see the Staten Island Yankees take on the Hudson Valley Renegades.  The Renegades have been cementing themselves as the first place team of the McNamara Division and showed again, completing a three-game sweep of the Yankees.
Jonathan Holder got the start for the Baby Bombers.  The 2014 sixth round pick out of Mississippi State went three innings allowing four hits and striking out one Renegade batter.
The Staten Island Yankees started off the scoring in the bottom of the third inning.  Devyn Bolasky started the inning off with a fly ball single to center and then moved over to third on a double to right by Luis Torrens.  After a pop out, Isaias Tejeda grounded out to the Hudson Valley shortstop to bring home Bolasky and give the Yankees the first run of the ballgame and move Torrens to third.  Next at the plate was Austin Aune who hit a fly ball to left field for his fifth double of the year and scoring Torrens.
The score remained 2-0 until the top of the fifth inning when the Hudson Valley Renegades managed to plate three runs to give them a 3-2 lead.  Staten Island retook the lead in the bottom of the fifth.  Devyn Bolasky reached on a bunt single, then stole second and came home to score on a one-out double by Ty McFarland.  McFarland moved to third on a wild pitch and then scored on a single to right by Austin Aune.
Hudson Valley added a run in the top of the sixth to tie the game once again but the Yankees added another run in the bottom of the frame to take the lead again.  Connor Spencer doubled to right to start the inning, went to third on a fly out to right and was then thrown out at the plate attempting to score on a fielder’s choice hit into by Jose Javier.  Javier then stole second and scored on a single to center by Devyn Bolasky.
Hudson Valley would take the lead once again in the top of the seventh inning when they plated two runs and then added an insurance run in the top of the ninth.  In the bottom of the ninth the Yankees cut the lead to one run when Isaias Tejeda hit his first homerun of the season.
Devyn Bolasky was 3-for-5 in the game with 2 runs scored and an RBI, he raised his average to .306 for the season.  Luis Torrens continued his solid hitting with a 2-for-4 day to bring his average to .357.  Austin Aune and Connor Spencer each had two hits.  Tejeda and Aune had 2 RBIs each and the Yankees combined for 12 hits to raise their team average to .234.
David Palladino took the loss for Staten Island, allowing six runs on five hits and three walks.  He struck out two in his three and a third innings of work.  Rony Bautista pitched two and a third innings allowing a run on two hits and three walks.  Ethan Carnes had a third of an inning of work as well.
Tomorrow night the Staten Island Yankees will start a four-game series with the Aberdeen Ironbirds with a double-header starting at 6pm.  The Baby Bombers will be making up a road game that was postponed and will be the road team for the first game of the double header.
