About Last Night: Shane Greene

So Shane Greene did pretty well last night. He lasted six innings, gave up two runs on four hits, struck out two and didn’t walk a batter.

Here’s his hit chart with outs included. He induced a lot of ground balls:

He made one mistake in the bottom of the fifth inning, giving up a home run to Nick Swisher but all in all, it was a nice first start for Greene who picked up his first MLB win.

Here’s the Swisher home run which came on an 89 mph slider over the plate:

So far this season, between last night’s start and his appearance in the Yankees’ 14-5 win against the Red Sox on 4/24, Greene has thrown 110 pitches; 66 fastballs, 1 changeup, 31 sliders and 12 cutters. He gave up one hit on his slider – the home run to Swisher – and gave up two hits on the fastball and one on the cutter.
