Tampa loses 4-3 in 10 innings

The Tampa Yankees came off of a rally of a win on Wednesday afternoon and were looking for another “W” on Thursday night to take a one game lead in the four game series against the Jupiter Hammerheads. But, after 10 innings, the Yanks would fall short 4-3 to Jupiter.

LHP Conner Kendrick (ERA 3.52) took the start for the Yanks but, after just four batters, was taken out of the game after deflecting a ground ball by Jupiter’s Viosergy Rosa. RHP Brett Gerritse (ERA 4.78) would then take over the mound for the Yanks and finish out the first.

Tampa did get on the board first with a RBI single by Dante Bichette to send Jake Cave home. Bichette would later rack up another RBI when Claudio Custodio scored in the third.

Gerritse allowed two runs by the Hammerheads in the 4th inning to tie the game at 2 runs apiece.

LHP Dietrich Enns (ERA 1.48) then took over pitching duties and pitched a no hit two innings along with four strikeouts. But, it was RHP Alex Smith (ERA 1.23)who not only allowed the tying run but also the winning run by Jupiter; he was charged with the blown save (2) and the loss (2-2).

Bichette went 3 for 4 on the night with2 RBIs and maintains his .277 batting average. Jake Cave was 2 for 4 and maintains his .323 batting average. Claudio Custodio racked up his twelfth stolen base of the season.

The Tampa Yankees will now take on the Jupiter Hammerheads on Friday night at 5:00pm with LHP Eric Wooten (2-2, 3.02) taking the start for Tampa.
