Yankees fanned 17 times in 5-1 loss to Jamestown

Staten Island, NY – The Baby Bombers’ bats were made silent as three Jamestown pitchers combined for 17 strikeouts, 12 by starter Ray Aguilar, in the Yankee’s 5-1 loss to the Jammers.  The Yankees went into tonight’s game with the fewest strikeout total in the league.  In the series of strikeouts, four Yankees were fanned three times.

Jamestown took an early 1-0 lead in the top of the first when Adam Stern led off with a double and came around to score on a single by Billy McCarthy.  The Jammers added one more in the top of the third before the Yankees responded with their only run of the game to cut the lead in half.

Aaron Rifkin lined a one-out single to left center.  After a strikeout by Shelley Duncan, Rifkin stole second and came around to score on a single by Jason Turner.

That was about all the offense the Yankees could muster, having just five hits in the evening.

The Jammers sealed the victory with single runs in the fifth, sixth and eighth innings.

Argenis Landaeta, a new arrival from the Gulf Coast Yankees, picked up his first loss.  He went 6.0 innings, giving up four runs on eight hits, striking out six.  The Yankee pitching trio of Landaeta, Ryan Gill and Reggie Laplante combined for 11 strikeouts of their own.

Staten Island and Jamestown will meet up on Tuesday night for game two of the three-game set.  Jason Smith, another Gulf Coast addition, will make his Staten Island Yankee debut.  He will face Jamestown’s Toby Staveland.
