In the end the SI Yankees clobbered the Valleycats 10-5 (BOX SCORE) and ADVANCED TO THE LEAGUE CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES!!! WOOOOOOO!!!
After James Kaprielian held the Valleycats' offense in a headlock in game 1, Domingo Acevedo did the same with six innings of one run ball in game 2. Man, Kaprielian + Acevedo + Cedeno = Unfair.
|From Pags to Wags|
Backing Acevedo up was the entire lineup. All nine batters had at least one hit. Thairo Estrada and Eduardo De Oleo had three hits (and a HR I believe), Brandon Wagner had a key two run home run, the whole offense was just on fire yesterday.
These Yankees man, they're not giving up. They're going to have to wait at least one day for the league championships though. As of this post the Williamsport-West Virginia hasn't finished yet (although West Virginia has a one game lead).
Personally I hope West Virginia prevails. Not just to spark a "friendly" rivalry with Bob Walk The Plank but also because if West Virginia wins the SI Yankees don't have to wait as long for their next game, and because I can say I saw West Virginia in SI this year (WV didn't come during the regular season). Also Williamsport swept the SI Yankees in the regular season. That's a big concern as well.
With every other affiliate now in the offseason or dangerously close to being sent home packing, SI's the last man standing. Let's hope they make it!
As always thanks for stopping by and take care :).
