Batavia, NY - The Baby Bombers™ pitching staff allowed 10 runs on 13 hits in the Yankees™ 10-7 loss to the Muckdogs last night.  Every starter in the Batavia line-up got a hit in the game, as the 13-Muckdog hits tied the second-highest hits allowed total by the Yankee pitching staff this season.

Ryan Gill and Ryan Clark, who have been a solid force in the bullpen for most of the season, combined to allow six runs on four hits in the loss.  Gill suffered the defeat.

Down 3-0 in the top of the sixth, the Yankees knotted the score at three, getting starter Rik Currier off the hook.  Currier then left the game in the hands of Gill, who, with Clark, gave up all six runs on two outs.

The Baby Bombers scored four times in the next three innings, but a ninth inning rally fell short, ending the game at 10-7.

Todd Faulkner and Kevin Thompson highlighted the Yankee offense with three hits a piece.  John-Ford Griffin was 1-for-2 with a double and two sacrifice flies in the loss.

The Yankees will conclude their three-game set at Batavia tonight at 7:05 p.m.  Jason Arnold (5-0), facing Batavia™s Mike Wilson (2-2).  They will return to the Richmond County Bank Ballpark at St. George tomorrow night at 7:35 p.m. against the Vermont Expos.
