SI Yanks Continue Strong Hitting In Victory Over Lake Monsters

BURLINGTON, VT – The Staten Island Yankees continue their strong hitting as they came from behind to defeat the Vermont Lake Monsters to open a 3-game set.  The Yankees combined had 10 hits in the game.

Flame thrower Domingo Acevedo got the start for the Baby Bombers, working his way back from a blister injury.  Acevedo threw 61 pitches over 4 1/3 innings of work and allowed 3 unearned runs on 3 hits and 1 walk, striking out 3 batters.

The Yankees got their first 2 runs of the game in the top of the fourth inning.  With 2-outs in the inning Junior Valera singled on a bunt fielded by the catcher.  Valera came around to score on a double to right by Ryan Krill.  Kevin Cornelius then lined a single to center to bring home Krill and cut the Vermont lead to just 1 run.

Staten Island went on to take the lead for good in the top of the fifth inning thanks to a 4-run inning.  Brandon Wagner sent a ground ball into right field for a 1-out single and went to third on a single by Jeff Hendrix.  Kyle Holder walked to load the bases for Zack Zehner.  Zehner then lined a single to center field that cleared the bases, a fielding error by the center fielder allowed Zehner move to third.  Junior Valera then hit a sacrifice fly to left field to plate Zehner and give the Yankees a 6-3 lead.

The Baby Bombers went on to add 2 more runs in the top of the seventh inning.  Jeff Hendrix led off the inning with a single, moved to second on a balk, and then scored on a 2-out single to center by Junior Valera.  Valera stole second, moved to third on a wild pitch before scoring when Ryan Krill reached base on a throwing error by the second baseman.

Jeff Hendrix, Junior Valera and Ryan Krill had 2 hits each in the game while Kyle Holder and Alvaro Noriega went hitless.  Travis Hissong earned the win after throwing 1 2/3 innings, facing just 4 batters.  Ethan Carnes earned the win thanks to 3 shutout innings in relief, striking out 6 of the 9 batters he faced.

Tuesday night the Staten Island Yankees will face off against the Vermont Lake Monsters once again with Kolton Mahoney taking the mound for the Baby Bombers.
