ValleyCats rally to beat Yankees

Tri-City strung together seven consecutive hits to score seven runs in the fifth inning Friday night

Tri-City strung together seven consecutive hits to score seven runs in the fifth inning Friday night, and the ValleyCats went on to beat the Staten Island Yankees, 9-7, in a New York-Penn League game at Joseph L. Bruno Stadium.

Terrell Joyce greeted reliever Sean Carley with a single to open the home fifth. He took second on an error on the play, and scored on a Ricky Gingras single.

Juan Santana followed with a single, and Mott Hyde scored Gingras with a double. Ariel Ovando singled in both Santana and Hyde.

Derek Fisher then singled, and A.J. Reed followed with a single to score Ovando, with Fisher also coming home on an error.

Nick Tanielu’s one-out sacrifice fly finished the scoring in the inning. The seven-run outburst erased a 6-2 Staten Island lead.

After the Yankees scored three runs in the first inning, Joyce got one back with a sac fly in the second.

Fisher stole third and scored on a throwing error for the ValleyCats’ second run, which pulled them to within 6-2 in the fourth.

The win was the 10th in 11 games for the ValleyCats.

The teams complete their three-game series tonight.
