CYCLONES LOSE 4th STRAIGHT, FALL TO 'CATS 3-1


Troy, NY – September 2, 2013 – The Brooklyn Cyclones picked the worst possible time for their longest losing streak of the season, as the Tri-City ValleyCats handed Brooklyn their fourth straight loss on Monday evening, defeating the Cyclones 3-1. The Cyclones loss, coupled with an IronBirds victory, has eliminated Brooklyn from playoff contention

After matching zeroes in the first inning, the Cyclones struck first in the top of the second. A pair of singles from Jared King and Alex Sanchez started the rally and Juan Gamboa’s two-out single plated King with the first run of the game, but Tri-City rightfielder Ronnie Mitchell gunned down Sanchez at the plate for the final out of the inning, as the Cyclones took a 1-0 lead.

Brooklyn starter Dawrin Frias cruised through the first 3.0 innings, but ran into trouble in the fourth. Consecutive singles from Tyler White and Conrad Gregor started the inning and put runners on the corners with nobody out. Ronnie Mitchell, who had saved a run earlier in the game with his outfield assist, opened the scoring for the ValleyCats with a sacrifice fly as Tri-City pulled even at 1-1.

That is how it would stay until the 8th inning as Frias and Brooklyn reliever David Wynn kept the ‘Cats off the board. The pair of Cyclones hurlers were matched by Tri-City ace Kyle Westwood who allowed just one run over 7.0 innings and finished the regular season with a 0.81 ERA.

But in the bottom of the eighth, Cristian Chivilli instantly found himself in trouble. A leadoff single from Ryan Dineen, a wild pitch, and a booming double from Tyler White broke the 1-1 tie and later in the frame Ronnie Mitchell’s second sac fly of the game pushed the ValleyCats advantage to 3-1.

The Cyclones went quietly in the ninth, as ValleyCats reliever Tylber Brunnemann retired Brooklyn in order to close out the game.

The Cyclones will close out the regular season with two more games at Bruno Stadium against the ValleyCats on Tuesday and Wednesday. RHP John Gant will take the mound for Brooklyn on Tuesday, hoping to build off of his one-hit complete game shutout against the ValleyCats last week.
