Once again Garabez Rosa was the thorn in the Yankees side as he was 2 for 5 with 2 big RBI’s. Staten Island took a 3 – 0 lead early and Yankee Pitcher Shaeffer Hall gave them a chance to win but the bull pen could not nail it down for win number two. Looking back at the stats the Yankees should’ve had this game in the bag. The Iron Birds left seven men on base while the Yankee only left 3 on base. Shaeffer Hall pitched a heck of a game but his record falls to 0 – 1 because of the bullpen’s collapse last night. The Yankees are coming home tonight for a three game set against the Renegades who have a record of 2-3 and are currently in third place and a game ahead of the Yankees. The Yankees need to get hot because if they get on a streak first place can be theirs in under a week.

Here is the line on Shaeffer Hall from last night’s contest:

  1. Well, the SI Yanks are slumping. It really doesn’t matter that much because it’s only 5 games, the minors are more about developing than winning. I don’t know anything about Shaeffer, but he is going to be my guy to watch.

    • I also am going to keep an eye on Hall because he has a chance to get a few wins this year if his offense can pick him up.
