After Y-D?s offense exploded for a season-high 14 runs in game one of Sunday?s doubleheader against Falmouth at Red Wilson Field, the Red Sox bats went cold in game two, with the Commodores coming away with a narrow 2-1 victory.
Unlike in game one, Y-D failed to deliver timely hits in game two. The Red Sox left seven runners on base, with the team leaving two runners on base in the first and fourth innings.
Dom Derenzo was one of the bright spots in the Y-D lineup as the Oklahoma Sooner product recorded two hits and an RBI. The starting catcher, who finds himself splitting time behind the plate with Kole Cottam and Mike Cassala, knocked in Kyle Isbel on a double for the lone Red Sox run of the game in the bottom of the second. Derenzo picked up his second hit on a single in the fourth.
Karl Kauffmann got the start on the mound for Y-D and tossed 2.1 innings of work allowing no runs on two hits and two walks while striking out two.
Karl Blum was tagged with the loss allowing two runs on a two-run game-winning home run to Falmouth?s Hunter Steinmetz in the top of the fifth inning.
Y-D (7-3-1) has an off day Monday and will be back in action Tuesday at Orleans. The Red Sox are back at Red Wilson for a Friday matchup with Bourne.
