MILROY – A lack of opportunistic at-bats proved costly for the Milroy Yankees in Monday’s rematch with the Brookings (S.D.) Cubs as multiple bases-loaded opportunities were squandered in a 3-1 loss.

On the hill for the Yankees was Ty Kemp, who lasted six innings while giving up six hits and two earned runs in the second and fourth innings. Kemp’s outing came to an end in the top of the eighth inning when Zach Felcyn took over and faced four batters before giving up the third run. Isaac Schmitt went on to take the mound later in the inning and remained until the end of the game.

The Yankees were led at the plate by Matt Bauer who finished 2 for 3 with a pair of singles and a walk in four at-bats. Dylan Criquet-Danielson, Andy Schmidt and Brian Dolan each added singles for Milroy, while Schmitt generated the team’s only run with a bases-loaded walk in the eighth inning.

With the loss the Yankees move to 4-9 on the season and will return to action on Friday when they travel to Raymond to take on the Rockets at 7:30 p.m.
