SI Yanks Continue Winning Ways in Opener in Aberdeen

Staten Island Yankees right fielder Timmy Robinson drove in all three runs for the Baby Bombers as they defeated the Aberdeen IronBirds 3-1 in the first game of a three-game set.

The Yankees did not waste any time to open the scoring in the first inning.  Wilkerman Garcia started the game off with a double to right field on the second pitch he saw.  He then moved to third on a wild pitch before scoring on a double by Timmy Robinson.

Jonathan Loaisiga got the start for Staten Island and pitched just 2 2/3 innings allowing a run on two hits and a walk in his second game for the Baby Bombers. Loaisiga threw just 60 pitches, 41 for strikes, as he is working his way back from Tommy John surgery.

Will Jones took over on the mound with two-outs in the third inning.  Jones pitched 3 1/3 innings allowing three hits in his longest outing of his professional career.  Jones struck out two batters and lowered his season ERA to 0.72.

Justin Kamplain came in the game in the seventh inning and earned the victory, his third of the season.  He struck out three batters over three innings and allowed just a hit and a walk.

Staten Island took the lead for good in the top of the ninth inning.  Cesar Diaz reached base with a line drive single to left to start the inning before moving to third on a single to right by Jason Lopez.  A wild pitch allowed Lopez to move to second, giving the Yankees two runners in scoring position for Timmy Robinson.  Robinson then sent the ball up the middle, into centerfield for a 2-RBI single to give the Yankees the lead.

Timmy Robinson now has a .343 batting average over his last 10 games (12-for-35) with 8 RBIs.  Solidifying himself as the Staten Island four-hole hitter.

The Staten Island Yankees and Aberdeen IronBirds will meet up again on Wednesday night with Jio Orozco set to take the mound for the Yankees.
