GCL Yankees Get 12 Hits In Route to 7-1 Victory over Phillies

The Gulf Coast Yankees 1 put an all-around effort together on Tuesday, beating the Phillies 7-1 while banging out 12 hits and playing error-free baseball.

The only member of the offense to not join the hit parade, ironically, was designated hitter Jordan Barnes. Wilkerman Garcia, Donny Sands, and Victor Rey had two hits apiece for the Yankees 1, and Leonardo Molina knocked in two with a double. Garcia’s day also included two runs batted in and two walks. Rey, while posting high strikeout numbers (28%), now has a slash line of .324/.467/.465 on the season.

Abel Duarte (4-1) had a solid starting effort, holding the Phillies to one run on five hits in five innings. Jose Pujols tossed 3.1 innings of shutout ball in relief for the save.

After sweeping the Braves in a double header on Monday, the Gulf Coast Yankees 2 fell victim to a bit of revenge. The Braves scored six times in the final two innings to come from behind and win 8-4.

The Yankees 2 had eight hits, with only backup catcher Ronald Suarez having a multi-hit game. Renzo Martini had the only extra base hit for the Yankees 2 with a double, and Isiah Gilliam and Yonauris Rodriguez recorded the only runs batted in.

The Yankees 2 could not withstand the rough outing of Cory Jordan (1-1), who surrendered all six runs the Braves scored in the 8th and 9th innings. It was a decent relief outing by Omar Luis that gave the Yankees 2 a chance to win, as he held the Braves down for 2.2 innings.
