FCL Yankees (16-6): The Yanks took a 6-4 lead into the sixth inning of the first game thanks to four home runs before blowing it late and losing 9-6, then shut out Tigers East in the second game 3-0.

Game 1

Game 2

  • Star of the Game: Juan Carela – 5 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 5 K. The 19-year-old has been a revelation for the Yanks, striking out 25 and walking just five through 22 innings over six appearances

  • Star of the Game: Hans Montero – 3-for-4, 1 double, 2 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 walk, 2 stolen bases. Quite the all-around effort for the young shortstop, who’s hitting .298 with six stolen bases
