Kendrick makes bullpen debut as T-Yanks top Jays 9-3

The Tampa Yankees’ made a pitching adjustment on Tuesday night bringing starter LHP Conner Kendrick out of the bullpen in the sixth inning. Although he allowed seven hits and three runs in four innings worth of work, he earned his second win of the season as the T-Yanks went on to defeat the Dunedin Blue Jays 9-3 at George M. Steinbrenner Field.

The Tampa Yankees to an early 1-0 lead in the first inning with a RBI single by Abiatal Avelino.

In the bottom of the third, the Yanks would tack on three more runs to extend their lead. Wes Wilson would single on a line drive that would be followed by a single by Avelino to put runners on 1st and 2nd. A two run double by Tyler Wade and then a sac fly by Miguel Andujar would then score the run.

Gabriel Encinas (ERA 4.26) took the start for the Yanks pitch 2.2 innings with no hits or runs allowed. Chad Taylor (ERA 2.45) then closed out the third and was then replaced by Jared Burton (ERA 0.00) with one hit and no runs allowed; striking out two batters and also allowing the Lays’ first run of the night in the top of the 5th.

Other notable runs of the game would be in the bottom of the sixth when Wilson scored off a throwing error by Dunedin’s Alberto Tirado, a RBI single by Ericson Leonora and a RBI double by Andujar in the bottom of the eighth.
