Austin DeCarr starting the game for the Yankees (Vermont Lake Monsters)

DeCarr Returns to Game Action in SI Yanks Victory

After missing all of the 2015 season rehabbing from Tommy John surgery, Austin DeCarr returned to game action for the Staten Island Yankees, pitching 4 innings, allowing 2 runs on 6 hits and walk.  The 21-year old former third rounds pick joined the Baby Bombers on a rehab assignment.

Vermont struck first early on, platting a run in the bottom of the first inning off of DeCarr.  Staten Island answered with a run of their own in the top of the second to tie the game.  Drew Bridges walked then moved to third when Chris Godinez reached on a fielding error and moved to second on the errant throw.  Bridges then scored on a ground out by Dalton Blaser.

The Lake Monsters added another run in the bottom of the third inning, but the Yankees answered yet again in the fourth inning with a run to tie the game.  Kane Sweeney singled to open the inning and after 2-outs he moved to second when Dalton Blaser was hit-by-a-pitch before Keith Skinner lined a single to center to bring home Sweeney.

Staten Island would take the lead for good in the top of the fifth inning. Ricardo Ferreira was hit by a pitch to start the inning, and then moved to third on an infield single to third by Kane Sweeney with 2-outs and scored on a single by Drew Bridges.

The score remained 3-2 until the top of the seventh inning when the Yankees plated 3 more runs.  Ricardo Ferreria homered to right field for the first Baby Bomber homerun of the 2016 season before Dom Thompson-Williams, Luis Torrens, Kane Sweeney and Drew Bridges hit back-to-back-to-back-to-back singles.  With the bases loaded and a run already in Chris Godinez grounded into a force out at the plate to keep the bases loaded and 1-out.  Dalton Blaser then hit into a force out at second base, bringing home Sweeney and giving the Yankees a 6-2 lead.

Staten Island plated 1 more run in the top of the eighth inning.  Ricardo Ferreira walked, stole second, moved to third on a throwing error before Dom Thompson-Williams walked.  Williams stole second before Luis Torrens flew out and a wild pitch brought home Ferreira, giving the Yankees a 7-2 lead.

The Yankees and Lake Monsters play the rubber game of the series on Monday night with Freicer Perez scheduled to make the start for Staten Island.
