PULASKI — The Yankees scored nine runs in the second inning for a 15-8 win over the Greeneville Reds in a game delayed by a thunderstorm and power outage .

The Reds jumped on top in the first inning with four singles, a hit batter, a bases loaded walk and a wild pitch to lead 4-0.

Pulaski’s Anthony Volpe led off with a walk and scored on Antonio Cabello’s single and a two-base error. After Chad Bell walked, a fielding error on Gustavo Campero’s ground ball scored Cabello. Bell then scored on Jake Pries’ single to cut the lead to 4-3 . Robert Javier led off the second with a single, followed by walks to Volpe and Bell. Campero extended his hit streak to eight games with a single scoring Javier and Volpe. Bell and Campero scored on Pries’ single followed by Borinquen Mendez’s two-run triple and a run-scoring single by Jake Farrell. Cabello drove in two more runs to extend the Yankee lead.

The Reds scored two runs in the fourth on a groundout by Ivan Johnson and a sacrifice fly by Tyler Calihan. Al Bumpass’ solo homer and a wild pitch in the fifth inning cut the Yankee lead to 12-8.

The Yankees added three runs in the seventh with Farrell scoring on a double steal and RBI doubles by Volpe and Cabello.
