Stone Crabs sweep T-Yanks

The Tampa Yankees seem to have been on quite a landslide as of late as they lost six of the last seven games which includes the sweep by the Charlotte Stone Crabs in the four game series at Charlotte Sports Park. In the series finale early Sunday, the T-Yanks fell 9-2 to the Crabs and look to rebuild after an off day on Monday before returning home for a four game homestand beginning on Tuesday.

Chaz Hebert (ERA 5.23) took the start for Tampa as Ryne Stanek (ERA 1.78) took the mound for Charlotte. The Stone Crabs took a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the fourth after giving up two doubles and a single consecutively. In the top of the fifth after a double by Mark Payton, Mike Ford scored after Michael O’Neill grounded out.

Hebert started the sixth inning and after putting runners on first and second, would be replaced by Andury Acevedo. After the sixth inning the Stone Crabs were up 6-1.

In the bottom of the seventh, Cale Coshow replaced Acevedo and allowed one more run with a 7-1 ballgame. But the Stone Crabs allowed two more runs in the bottom of the eighth.

Tampa was able to get one more on the board in the ninth when Miguel Andujar scored when O’Neill grounded out.

Hebert was charged with the loss (3-3) as Stanek earned the win (4-2).

Next Up:

The Tampa Yankees will take on the Palm Beach Cardinals on Tuesday night at George M. Steinbrenner Field at 7:30pm.
