Game of the Day - Lake Monsters vs. Yankees – The Vermont Lake Monsters (35-33) escaped four straight games against Connecticut (34-33) with a half game lead in the Stedler Division over the Tigers, and six games remaining on the schedule. And it won’t be an easy final six for the Lake Monsters, who kick off a three game series against league best Staten Island (43-24) tonight. Tyler Vail starts for the Lake Monsters, his ninth start of the season with Vermont. Vail has not picked up a win since July and was 0-3 with a 6.89 ERA in August. The 19-year-old righty has some decent potential as a former 5th rounder for the A's, but he needs some work on his command as he currently has 20 walks to go with his 21 strike outs. Will Olvers gets the call for Staten Island looking for his second straight win. Oliver has been solid over his last six games, allowing 2 or fewer runs in each, including three scoreless starts. In a start versus Vermont in June, Oliver tossed 4 1/3 innings and allowed 4 earned runs…Staten Island won the previous series against Vermont, two game to one…Vermont is 13-13 in the month of August…Staten Island outfielder Mason Williams is leading the league with a .358 batting average, .021 points ahead of his closest competition…Vermont closer Tanner Peters has allowed only 3 earned runs over 23 2/3 innings of work and his 11 saves puts him third in the league, two behind Yankees closer Branden Pinder.
