by Stephen Romano | Posted on Sunday, June 22nd, 2014

Brandy Steiger homered in the first inning for the Staten Island Yankees as the Baby Bomber bats were on fire in a 10-6 victory over the Hudson Valley Renegades.

After being shout out the night before the Yankees’ bats came out strong. The top of the lineup combined for nine hits, led by Steiger who had three knocks. Chris Breen continued his hot start with two hits, bringing his average up to a league leading .400.

The Baby Bombers collected five singles in the sixth inning and a double by Breen to score five runs, extending their lead by four.

The Yankees put up season high numbers in hits (13) and runs.

Jordan Cote started the game for the Yankees, giving up three runs on three hits. He has yet to pick up a decision in his first two starts. His next start is to be determined

Conor Mullee was credited a blown save and the win in this contest. Mullee gave up two runs in his third appearance for the Yankees.

With this win over the Renegades the Yankees finally get their Batting Average over .200, improving to .206. The power numbers are still struggling, but as they have been showing us, singles do the job too.

The Yankees improve to 5-4 on the season and the Renegades fall to 5-4.

The Yankees will be on the road for the next three games, playing the Renegades one more time, then Aberdeen twice; the Yankees will then return home for another matchup with the Renegades.
