Staten Island Cruises To Win, Snaps Losing Streak

Burlington, VT- The Staten Island Yankees entered play on Sunday the owners of a two game losing streak. That streak began at Brooklyn and continued into Friday nights game against Vermont, a three to one loss. The Yankees needed a win to keep their fall ball hopes alive and stave off their elimination number from sinking lower.
The Yankees did manage to play well enough to live another day. Staten Island’s starter Jordan Foley threw four solid innings of work, striking out 5 and yielding no hits to the Lake Monsters. A solid outing from their starting pitching if they were to remain in contention.
The Baby Bombers offense also contributed to their pitching and helped out big time by showing up early on in the game. A two RBI single by Nathan Mikolas made it two to nil for the Yankees in the second. Ty McFarland slammed his fifth homer of the year in the Top of the Third for the Yanks as they pushed the deficit to three to nothing.
Staten Island’s bullpen would hold on and give them five solid innings of work. Tim Giel stuck out five and picked up his third save out of the bullpen. Jordan Montgomery would pick up his first win out of the bullpen for the Yankees this year.
Vermont’s pitching was not as good as Staten Island’s as starter Cristhian Perez would take the loss and fall to two and four on the year. Things were not much better on the offensive side of the ball for the Lake Monsters either as the Yankees managed to two hit them over nine innings.
The Baby Bombers would tack on two more runs and beat Vermont five to nothing. With the win the Yankees managed to snap their mini losing streak on the road. They also managed to improve back to an even thirty three and thirty three record on the season. The Yankees will finish off the three game series tomorrow night in Burlington with a five o’five start time against the Lake Monsters.
