T-Yanks lose double header to Threshers

The Tampa Yankees were unable to out swing the Clearwater Threshers on Thursday night in a double header at George M. Steinbrenner Field, losing both seven inning contests.

RHP Rafael De Paula (ERA 4.97, 2-4) had the start in game 1 and after allowing one run early on, struggled in the third inning allowing the Threshers to tack on six more runs. The runs that the Yanks were able to score first came from a ground rule double by Yeicok Calderon and he and Dante Bichette would later score after a single by Trent Garrison.

Cito Culver would later hit his second homerun of the season to tack on another and then a RBI single by Matt Snyder sent Greg Bird home.

De Paula was charged with the loss in the first game as the T-Yanks drop 8-5.

RHP Jaron Long (ERA 5.40) took the mound for the second game of the double header. He would end up pitching 5 innings allowing 3 hits and 2 runs; striking out 3 batters.

RHP Kyl Haynes took over for the sixth inning allowing 2 hits and 1 run. Another righty Nick Rumbelow (ERA 2.57) pitched the seventh and final inning of the game. The Tampa Yankees were lackluster offensively and were 0 for 4 with runners in scoring position.

The Tampa Yankees were shutout 3-0 in the second game as Long is charged with the loss (0-2).

The Tampa Yankees will not see playing time again until Monday night when they take on the Daytona Cubs in Jackie Robinson Ballparknas the Florida State League hosts All-Star Weekend.
