Staten Island Yankees Game Recap For 7/17

Late Comeback Effort Falls Short in 8-6 Loss to Muckdogs


Staten Island, NY – July 17th – The Staten Island Yankees rallied for four runs in the bottom of the eighth, but fell to the Batavia Muckdogs 8-6 on Wednesday night.

Staten Island took an early 1-0 lead in the first when second baseman Derek Toadvine scored on an RBI double to left by Yeicok Calderon. Toadvine had reached on a fielding error by Muckdogs’ shortstop Javier Lopez, and moved to second when Trevor Williams committed a throwing error on a pickoff attempt.

The Muckdogs then retaliated with a three-run second.  After walking three batters with one out, Yankees’ starter Cale Coshow gave up a run-scoring single to Justin Bohn. Batavia centerfielder Yefri Perez then reached on a fielding error by shortstop John Murphy, allowing both Scott Carcaise and Sharif Othman to come home.

Batavia added another run in the third when Avery Romero was plated on a single by Carcaise. After that, Coshow was replaced on the mound by Sam Agnew-Wieland. Coshow lasted just 2.2 innings, surrendering four runs – two earned – off four hits and three walks, while striking out two.

In the top of the fifth, the Muckdogs picked up a run after Austin Dean and Felix Munoz hit back-to-back doubles to make it 5-1.

Two runs in the sixth and one more in the seventh, gave Batavia a seven-run advantage. In the sixth, Carlos Lopez hit a two-run double; and then in the following frame, Othman singled in Romero.

The Yankees rallied for four runs in the bottom of the eighth. Back-to-back singles by Eric Jagielo and Yeicok Calderon put runners on first and second before Kale Sumner walked. Bubba Jones then singled on a line drive to right to plate Jagielo.

After Justin Jackson replaced Reid Redman on the mound for the Muckdogs, John Murphy singled on a ground ball to center to score Calderon. Sumner and Jones later came home on a single off the bat of Radley Haddad to make it 8-5.

In the bottom of the ninth, Calderon hit a 1-1 pitch over the centerfield wall to put the Yankees within two runs.

Coshow took the loss, while Jackson earned the win for Batavia. Jackson allowed four earned runs off six hits in 4.1 innings. He fanned eight batters.
