STATEN ISLAND, NY – In an early morning contest the Staten Island Yankees completed a sweep of the visiting Jamestown Jammers. Strong pitching and timely hitting lead the Baby Bombers to a 2-1 victory, with the best performance of the day going to pitcher Justin Kamplain.
The Staten Island Yankees got on the board in the bottom of the second inning. Isaias Tejeda singled to center to start the inning, moved to second on a wild pitch and then scored on a two-out single by Nathan Mikolas. Tejeda’s single pushes his hitting streak to 16 games.
Staten Island added one more in the bottom of the third. Brady Steiger started it off with a walk, moved to second on a single by Jake Anderson and then went to third on a single by Vicente Conde. Luis Torrens then extended his hitting streak to 17 games with an RBI single to left.
Justin Kamplain got the start for the Baby Bombers and was perfect through four innings, striking out five batters. He was followed by Luis Niebla who allowed a run on three hits and two walks in his three and a third innings to earn his second win of the season. Tim Giel earned his first save, tossing an inning and two-thirds.
Tomorrow night the Baby Bombers travel to Fishkill, NY to take on the Hudson Valley Renegades in a brief two-game set. It will be the last time the Renegades and Yankees meet each other in the regular season.
