Rhode Island Alums Shine on National and World Stage

KINGSTON, R.I. – In a remarkable night for Rhode Island alumni, Geoff Cameron helped the United States Men's National Team defeat Ghana, 2-1, in the World Cup and Nick Greenwood earned the victory in his Major League Baseball debut.

Cameron started in the middle of the U.S. defense that played well in front of keeper Tim Howard. He also drew the attention of the Ghana defense, helping clear space for John Brooks to head in the game-winner for the Americans in the 86th minute.

ESPN.com's Jeff Carlisle rated Cameron’s performance a 7 out of 10. Only Howard and Brooks received higher grades in Carlisle’s report. Cameron – who helped lead Rhode Island to the 2006 Atlantic 10 championship – is the second URI men's soccer player to appear in a World Cup as Andy Williams competed for his native Jamaica in 1998.

The Attleboro, Mass. product will be back on the pitch Sunday when the USMNT plays Portugal (ESPN, 6 p.m. EST).

Following the Team USA win, Greenwood made his big league debut with the St. Louis Cardinals on ESPN’s Monday Night Baseball. He entered the game against the New York Mets as a relief pitcher in the top of the fourth inning and pitched 3.1 innings, allowing one run on two hits while striking out three batters. Greenwood fanned seven-time all-star David Wright for his first career strikeout.

The Southington, Conn. native exited the game in the top of the eighth inning, heading back to the dugout while nearly all of the 42,808 fans at Busch Stadium rose to their feet to give the rookie an ovation. St. Louis would hold on for a 6-2 victory, securing Greenwood the first win by a Cardinals relief pitcher making his Major League debut since 1988 (John Costello)

Greenwood is the first Ram to play in a major league game since Norm Gigon did so in 1967 and URI's fifth player overall.
