STATEN ISLAND, NY – The Staten Island Yankees took game two of a 3-game set with the visiting State College Spikes. The game was the first Yankees victory at home in the season, bringing them one game above .500 for the season. They remain in third place in the McNamara Division due to wins by both the Brooklyn Cyclones and Hudson Valley Renegades.

Big right-hander Domingo Acevedo got the start for the Baby Bombers and impressed with his velocity. At one point he hit triple digits on the radar gun, an even 100 miles per hour. Acevedo was on an 80-pitch pitch count coming into the game and was done after 3 innings of work, throwing 78 pitches in the game. Over his 3 innings he allowed 3 hits and 3 walks, striking out 2 batters along the way.

Staten Island struck early, plating their first run in the bottom of the third inning. Jeff Hendrix lined a single to start the inning, stole second base and moved to third on a ground out by Brandon Wagner. Thairo Estrada then brought him home on a line drive double to center field.

The Yankees were not done there, adding an insurance run in the bottom of the seventh inning. Jeff Hendrix walked, stole second and scored on a singled lined to right by Brandon Wagner.

Drew Bridges came up big in the bottom of the eighth inning, giving the Yankees three more insurance runs on a big homerun down the right field line. Griffin Gordon started the inning with a double to right, he went to third when Eduardo de Oleo singled. That brought up Bridges who took the fifth pitch of the at bat deep.

Josh Reoder was the second pitcher in the game and earned the win, throwing 2 innings allowing a hit. He was followed by Mark Seyler who also worked two shutout innings, allowing a hit and striking out 1. Michael Schaub was next on the mound and he struggled a bit in his 2/3 of an inning, allowing 2 hits.

Sean Carley finished the game for the Baby Bombers, earning the save after pitching 1.1 innings. Carley allowed 1 run on 2 hits and a walk while striking out 1.

Tomorrow night these two teams will meet in the rubber game with left-hander Derek Callahan on the mound for Staten Island.
