SI Yankees Top Connecticut Tigers 7-1 to Open Series
Connor Spencer had three hits and scored one run as the Staten Island Yankees defeated the Connecticut Tigers 7-1 on the road last night.
Justin Kamplain went four scoreless innings for the Baby Bombers and fanned five Tigers. Kamplain improves his ERA to 0.43 on the year. Matt Wotherspoon picked up the win throwing three hitless innings and striking out two.
The Yankees got off to a strong start when Isaias Tejeda doubled to left field scoreing Ty McFarland, who was hit by a pitch the previous at bat.
Renzo Martini crushed a grand slam in the top of the sixth inning to extend the lead to 7-0. It was Martini’s fourth homerun on the year.
The Tigers went on to score one run in the eighth inning on a few singles, but the Yankees’ bullpen got the job done after that.
Andury Acevedo and Ethan Carnes combined for two scoreless innings to close out the game.
The Yankees will square off against the Tigers two more times in this series, before returning home for a three game series with Lowell and Auburn.
