Justin Kamplain pitched two shutout innings in his first pro start (Robert M. Pimpsner)

SI Yanks Move into Second Place with Win

 STATEN ISLAND, NY – The Staten Island Yankees pitching staff have found their groove.  The Baby Bombers completed their second consecutive shutout win and are now tied for second place in the McNamara Division.
Justin Kamplain, a 2014 draftee, made his first professional start of the season.  Kamplain pitched two shutout innings allowing just a hit and striking out one on just 26 pitches.  He was followed by the originally scheduled starter Sam Agnew—Wieland who threw four innings allowing just a hit and three walks while striking out four to earn the win.
Staten Island broke the shutout in the top of the six inning.  Isaias Tejeda reached via a ground-rule double.  Jose Javier was then hit by a pitch before Devyn Bolasky reached on a failed force attempt that brought Tejeda scored.  Brady Steiger then singled on a fly ball to center to bring home Javier and move Bolasky to third.  Chris Breen then hit into a double play that brought home Bolasky and give Staten Island a 3-0 led.
The Yankees really broke the game open in the bottom of the seventh when they plated six runs.  Bo Thompson started the inning off with a single, then Nathan Mikolas walked and Thairo Estrada reached on a fielding error.  With the bases loaded Isaias Tejeda hit a fly ball to left for a 2-RBI double.  With Estrada at third and Tejeda at second, Jose Javier singled to left to bring home Estrada.  Tejeda and Javier would score on a bases-clearing triple by Devyn Bolasky to left.  Brady Steiger then hit a sac fly to right to bring home Bolasky and the Staten Island Yankees now had a 9-0 lead.
That was all the Yankees need as the pitching staff continued their dominating performance.  Tim Giel pitched an inning of one-hit all while Manolo Reyes and Conor Mullee each had a perfect inning while striking out two batters a piece.  The Baby Bombers pitching staff have thrown 24 consecutive shutout innings.
Tomorrow night the Yankees will travel to Fishkill, NY to finish the two-game series.  Jordan Cote is scheduled to make the start for Staten Island.
