Tampa Yankees Extend Their Winning Streak To Seven With 2-1 Victory

The Tampa Yankees were back in Tampa for the first time since May 19th as they started a four-game series with the Charlotte Stone Crabs. The Yankees were riding a four-game win streak coming into the game while also holding an FSL-best 34-19 record. On the mound was Will Carter making his fourth start for the T-Yanks.

Thairo Estrada gave the Yankees an early lead against the Stone Crabs. He drove Miguel Andujar in with a single to center, it was his fourth RBI for the Yankees since joining them. The Stone Crabs would follow in the fourth tying the game with a double after hitting two consecutive singles prior. On the double Zack Zehner and Jorge Mateo paired up for a relay throw getting the runner out at home to keep the game tied. Will Carter gave the Yankees his best start since being called up. He went six innings giving up just the run in the fourth and five hits.

Matt Marsh would enter the game in the seventh and strike out the side, holding the lead for the Yankees to do some damage in the next inning. They’d do just enough as with two outs, and Jorge Mateo at third after a stolen base and throwing error, Abiatal Avelino drove him in with a liner past the shortstop. It’d be Avelino’s 17th RBI on the season and Mateo’s two stolen bags during the game had him at 19 for the season. After Matt Marsh gave the Yankees two innings of perfect pitching with 4 Ks, Dillon McNamara came on for the save and would get it. McNamara’s third save of the year moved the Yankees to 35-19 on the season and kept the winning streak alive as it’s now to seven.

Looking forward, hopefully this is something Will Carter can build on as he was struggling a little since joining Tampa. Thairo Estrada and Austin Aune both have eight game hitting streaks, and Michael O’Neill has a seven-game. The second game of the series calls for Ian Clarkin on the mound. He be trying to keep a winning streak alive and get his fifth win of the season.
