Staten Island Edged Out In Pitchers’ Duel By Connecticut in Game 1 of Doubleheader

STATEN ISLAND – Game 1 of the doubleheader between the Staten Island Yankees and Connecticut Tigers was a pitchers’ duel from start to finish – but it was a triple off the bat of Tigers’ No. 9 hitter Andres Sthormes that proved to be the difference as the Yankees were edged out 1-0 in seven innings on Thursday evening at home.

Staten Island (41-26) starter Trevor Stephan was brilliant on the mound once again as he mowed through Connecticut’s (33-32) lineup for four innings where he only surrendered a single hit and struck out four.

In the fifth inning, Stephan was pulled in favor of David Palladino (1-1) who tossed the final three frames of the game, and he only gave up two hits but those hits proved to be costly for Staten Island. First, he surrendered that triple to Sthormes with one out in the sixth, and then he gave up an RBI single to the very next batter.

Palladino finished his outing without giving up a walk and striking out five, but that run was the difference in this game.

The Yankees made things interesting in the bottom of the seventh inning when they put the tying run in scoring position and the winning run at first with two outs. But, pinch hitter Cody Brown hit the ball hard but hit it right into the glove of the Tigers’ first baseman to end the game.

Game 2 of the doubleheader is set to start at 7:15 p.m.
