PLAYOFFS START TOMORROW

New York Penn-League Playoffs The Boston-New York rivalry makes it’s way to the New York Penn League as the Staten Island Yankees will face off against the Lowell Spinners. Game 1 will be in Lowell Tuesday night and Staten Island is looking for their fifth New York Penn League Championship. The red hot Staten Island Yankees look to carry some of this momentum into the playoffs as their 13 game winning streak was snapped recently by the Vermont Lake Monsters (NYPL Affiliate of the Washington Nationals). Brooklyn took the Wild Card and will be facing off against the Mahoning Valley Scrappers Tuesday in Coney Island. 

Tomorrow’s Pitching Matchup:

Warren (4-2) vs. Alvarez (8-3)

Warren (4-2) vs. Alvarez (8-3)

The Yankees have a healthy balance of pitching and offense, leading the league with a 2.53 ERA. Adam Warren (4-2, 1.43 ERA) is the ace of a staff that features no fewer than nine pitchers with ERAs under 2.50. The Spinners have their own ace in Jose Alvarez (8-3), who started the All-Star Game and led the league with a 1.52 ERA, two complete games and two shutouts. Lowell was right behind Staten Island with a 2.96 ERA.
