In their first home appearance at the Himes Complex in Tampa, Florida, the Florida Complex League (FCL) Yankees were beaten by the FCL Blue Jays 7-3 in an almost three and a half-hour game that was completed a little early as a result of a strong thunderstorm.
The first hit of the day came in the second inning from a hard-hit single by Alex Guerrero, today’s 1B, but a couple of well-hit back-to-back RBI triples were what got the FCL Yanks on the board in the third. Unfortunately, those runs early in the game would be all the FCL Yankees would score as they had trouble with the pitching on offer by the FCL Blue Jays.
The FCL Yankees’ pitching was stellar going into the eighth inning. Tyrone Yulie started the game and hit as high as 97 mph on the radar gun over his three innings of work. The entire pitching staff allowed only one hit, 4 walks, and 8 Ks recorded until Kevin Milam gave up an RBI single and a 3-run home run over the batting cages in right.
