Nick Green (James Snook/ Spokane Indians)

Green Impresses, SI Yanks Fall to Cutters

The Staten Island Yankees were unable to complete the sweep as they fell to the Williamsport Crosscutters.  The loss combined with the Hudson Valley Renegades win over the Brooklyn Cyclones means the two teams are tied for first place in the New York-Penn League McNamara Division.

Making his debut for the Staten Island Yankees was right-handed pitcher Nick Green.  Green came to the Yankees in the Carlos Beltran trade and was impressive in his first start.

“It felt really good, it’s nice to get that first outing out of the way,” he told us after the game, “I’m looking forward to helping my new team out as much as I can and giving my best for them the rest of this season.”

In five innings of work he allowed just one earned run on four hits while striking out three batters and no walks allowed.

“My fastball command helped me get through [tonight],” Green said, “I worked in a couple of change ups and curveballs. The team had my back on the ground balls and fly balls I was getting, they helped me get out of multiple situations.”

Staten Island scored only one run in the game, and it came in the top of the second inning.  Timmy Robinson doubled to start the inning, went to third on a wild pitch and scored on a single by Angel Aguilar.

Jonathan Padilla took over on the mound in the sixth inning, and he allowed five runs, two earned on five hits and two walks while striking out 4.  David Palladino pitched an inning and allowed one run on three walks while Claudio Custodio pitched just 1/3 of an inning.

The Staten Island Yankees return home on Saturday night to start a three-game set with the Lowell Spinners.  Kolton Mahoney is scheduled to make the start for the Yankees.
