Yost Competing in Cape Playoffs

Fordham Prep graduate Eric Yost and the Yarmouth-Dennis Red Sox begin a Cape Cod Baseball League best-of-three divisional semifinal playoff series tonight with the Orleans Firebirds.

The Red Sox, the second seed, will host the third-seeded Firebirds in game 1 tonight and game 3, if necessary, on Saturday. Game 2 is in Orleans on Friday.

Yost, 19, is pitching for a second summer on Cape Cod and finished the regular season at 2-5 with a 3.58 earned run average. In 32 ⅔ innings over seven games, six being starts, he allowed 13 earned runs on 30 hits and 10 walks. Yost, who plays at Northeastern University, struck out 24.

In his last outing on July 31 against Orleans, Yost allowed an earned run on three hits and struck out six over 5 ⅓ innings.

The Cape Cod Baseball League is the premier collegiate wooden bat summer league that features many of the nation’s top college players. Of the 616 players selected in this year’s Major League Baseball Draft, 197 or 32 percent had played in the Cape Cod Baseball League.
