Palladino Comes Through For SI Yanks, Beats Lake Monsters 3-1

Burlington, VT- The Staten Island Yankees entered play on Sunday having just beaten the Lake Monsters the day before to snap a two game losing streak. The Yankees sent starting pitcher David Palladino to the mound against Vermont’s Dillon Overton.
 
Palladino had a great performance for the Yankees bouncing back from his last start against the Tri-City Valley Cats. In Sunday’s game Palladino went through five innings striking out two and surrendering only one hit. The main blemish for Palladino, as it has been in the past, were command issues as he walked three batters over five frames.
 
The Yankees though showed their starting pitcher some love by jumping out to a quick one run lead over the Lake Monsters in the first inning thanks in part to an Isias Tejada RBI double that would bring Connor Spencer all the way home from second.
 
The Yankees managed to tack on another two runs thanks in part to Luis Torrens and Chris Breen. Those runs came in the Top of the Ninth with the game having still been a nail biter to that point, one to nothing.
 
Vermont would not go down quietly though as the Lake Monsters added their own run in the Bottom of the Ninth. Chris Masik singled to start the inning off but then managed to get all the way down to third base on a fielding mistake. He would come around to score on a groundout but that would be the end of their threat and the end of the game.
 
Staten Island will head home after their road trip having taken two of three from the Lake Monsters. Brooklyn did win their game on Sunday however so that Yankees do not gain any ground in the Wild Card race. They remain three and a half games behind the Cyclones.
