Rob Segedin started the bottom of the second with a ground-rule double, scoring on a sac fly form Kelvin Castro to tie the score. Brevard County broke the tie in the sixth and took a 6-2 lead as the game headed into the final inning. Tampa managed a rally, as Kyle Roller started with a walk and Segedin singled to right. Neil Medchill walked to load the bases and Cody Johnson grounded into a force out at the plate. Castro singled to center, scoring two runs and Walter Ibarra plated Johnson on a single. Unfortunately, the Yankees rally ran out, as they took a 6-5 loss. Ibarra was 2-4 with a double and a RBI. Segedin was 2-4 with two runs scored and a double.

Barring a massive turnaround, I will probably leave it at that for the night. Follow the link for the box score.
