Y’alls Swept in Double-Header, Tumble to Series Defeat

AUGUSTA, NJ – The Florence Y’alls (17-13), presented by Towne Properties, saw their bats go quiet during Thursday’s double-header against the Sussex County Miners (19-10). In back-to-back losses by the scores of 4-3 and 3-2, Florence struggled offensively and allowed the Miners to walk off back-to-back victories in the seventh inning.

In Game 1, the Miners scored first during a two-run first inning. Walks to third baseman Abraham Mow and second baseman Juan Santana set up designated hitter Oraj Anu, who singled to plate both runners. Florence answered back in the top of the second with a three-run rally on the back of five hits and a Sussex County error. Center fielder Cole Brannen tied the game with a two-RBI single before second baseman Craig Massey gave the Y’alls a 3-2 lead with an RBI single. The Y’alls would not score again for the remainder of the game, while the Miners chipped away with a solo home run from first baseman Gavin Stupienski in the fifth off Florence lefthander Michael Kirian. In the seventh, Florence righthander Sean Hughes walked leadoff man Willie Escala, who advanced to second on a sacrifice bunt. Abraham Mow then drove in Escala with a single to left for a walk-off 4-3 Miners victory.

In Game 2, Florence struggled to hit against Sussex County starter Cole Davis (5.0+ IP, 4 H, 2 ER, 3 BB, 3 K). The righthander held the Y’alls scoreless through his first five innings. Meanwhile, the Miners scored a run in the first after an infield single from right fielder Edwin Mateo before a two-base error on Florence right fielder Sam Plash allowed Mateo to score. Through five, Sussex County led 2-0. In the sixth, Florence tied the game on a two-run home run from left fielder Ray Zuberer, but the Y’alls stranded a runner at third with one out in the inning. In the seventh, Florence righthander Edgar Martinez struck out the first two batters before surrendering a walk-off home run to Miners second baseman Anthony Gomez. The homer marked Gomez’s first of the season and handed Martinez (6.2 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 2 ER, 0 BB, 11 K) his second defeat of the year.

Florence has now lost its first series since 5/26-5/28 at Windy City. The Y’alls now travel to Troy, NY to begin a three-game series with the Tri-City Valleycats. First pitch from Joseph Bruno Stadium is Friday, June 16th at 6:30 p.m. ET.
