After a Cards’ rally, T-Yanks drop to 7-3

The Tampa Yankees took the field early on Thursday afternoon for a match-up with the Palm Beach Cardinals at Roger Dean Stadium. Lefty Conner Kendrick (ERA 6.24) took the hill for the Yanks as they hoped to earn the win and gain some momentum in this second half of the season. However, with a powerful fourth inning and a final score of 7-3 the T-Yanks dropped another to the Cards.

The T-Yanks did get on the board first in the top of the fourth inning with a two run homer by Angelo Gumbs on a fly ball to left field with Aaron Judge on first. The bottom of the fourth was the most detrimental to the Yanks as Kendrick allowed seven runs by Palm Beach.

With a 7-2 ballgame, the Yanks were able to tack on just one more as Greg Bird hit his fifth homerun of the season on a fly ball to center. With a four run deficit, the T-Yanks put righty Chris Smith (ERA 3.48) on the mound. Kendrick’s final line would be four innings with eight hits, seven runs and six strikeouts. Smith would work the fifth and sixth innings with no hits allowed; striking out two batters.

Recent callup and 2014 Second Round Draft Pick LHP Jacob Lindgren made his first appearance as a Tampa Yankee as he struck out the side in the seventh inning.

Dante Bichette Jr. extended his hitting streak to nineteen games as he went 2 for 4 on Thursday. Gumbs’ homerun is his second consecutive in two days.

With this loss the Tampa Yankees drop to 12-14 and are in third place four games behind the division leader, Kendrick now falls to (3-7).

The Tampa Yankees will take on the Palm Beach Cardinals on Friday evening at Roger Dean Stadium at 6:35pm
