SI Yanks Keep Rolling, Beat ‘Clones 4-3

Another day and another victory for the Staten Island Yankees as they moved to a league-best 13-2 record.  The Yankees were led by Dom Thompson-Williams and Leonardo Molina, each had two hits and an RBI in the contest along with a walk.

Daniel Alvarez got the start for Staten Island and earned the victory, his first of season after throwing 5 1/3 innings allowing three runs on three hits and a walk while striking out eight batters.  Alvarez was lifted with one out in the bottom of the sixth with the bases loaded, but all three would score.

The Yankees got off to an early lead in the top of the first inning.  Wilkerman Garcia lined a double and then came home to score on a double by Dom Thompson-Williams.

In the top of the third, the Yankees would plate two more runs.  Cody Brown reached on a fielding error to start, moved to second on a single by Oswaldo Cabrera and then to third on a force out at second hit into by Wilkerman Garcia.  After Garcia stole second and Dom Thompson-Williams walked, Dalton Blaser would ground into a force out at third base that allowed Brown to come home to score.  Leonardo Molina then lined a double to left to bring home Thompson-Williams but Dalton Blaser was called out at home attempting to score.

Staten Island added another run in the top of the fourth.  Kendall Coleman reached on a fielding error that allowed him to go into second safely.  He moved to third on a single by Jason Lopez and scored on a sacrifice fly by Cody Brown.

Justin Kamplain came into the game in the sixth inning and allowed a hit and a walk along with a strikeout in 1 2/3 innings.  Greg Weissert earned his third save of the season with two innings of work, walking two and striking out two batters.
