Curtis Granderson first learned of Greg Golson’s throwing ability when the outfielder was warming up in right before the 10th inning of last night’s game against Tampa Bay.
``I was watching the ball go back and forth and I’m like `Goly really has a good arm,’ Granderson said in a post game interview on YES.
Golson had 53 assists in the minor leagues, but when he threw out Carl Crawford, who tried to tag from second to third on a pop out to right, Golson had his first major league assist.
``The best way to describe it is yes!’’ Golson said of the way he felt when the out call was made to complete the double play and end the game. ``Everyone running out to right field, that usually doesn’t happen. I was thinking of a walk-off hit. But this was a walk-off throw. Usually when you throw and walk off, it's because you lost.’’
