SI Yankees fall out of first place after getting swept by the Brooklyn Cyclones
The Staten Island Yankees have fallen out of first place for the first time this season, after being swept against the Cyclones in their doubleheader yesterday.
Taylor Widener, the 12th round pick got the call in game 1 and was impressive in his 3 innings of shut out baseball. He struck out 5, including striking out the side in the first inning. He would come out in the 4th as Brian Trieglaff replaced him. Trieglaff would go 2 innings allowing one run.
The Yankees would continue to struggle offensively in game two, only scoring 2 runs, en route to a 3-2 loss. Nick Sergakis got the Cyclones on board to start the game, as he ripped a RBI double scoring Blake Tiberi. The Yankees were held scoreless until the 7th inning, after a Timmy Robinson triple drove in Drew Bridges to tie the game at 1. Dom- Thompson would then single, allowing Robinson to score, as the Yankees went up 2-1.
