Conrad kicked off his professional career in style, leading off the bottom of
the first off with a sharp single to right, and then advancing to second on an
error by Yankee outfielder Austin Aune. Just three pitches later, Conrad would
steal third and come around to score on a throwing error by Staten Island
catcher Radley Haddad.
That would be all the
run support Gannon needed on the night. The right handed hurler put up six
scoreless innings, allowing only two hits and fanning eight Staten Island
Conrad continued his
excellent debut in the fifth inning when he singled home Coty Blanchard to give
the 'Gades a 3-0 lead. He would finish two for four with an RBI and a run
scored. Wilmer Dominguez singled to bring home Bralin Jackson in the second
inning, giving Hudson Valley their second run of the game. Dominguez capped off
his evening with an RBI and two hits in three trips to the plate.
Issac Gil shut the door
for his squad, tossing three scoreless innings and striking out five. He earned
his first save of the season to go with his 2-0 overall record. Gil and Gannon combined
to hold the Staten Island offense to just three hits on the night.
