CYCLONES BATS SILENCED IN THURSDAY'S 4-1 LOSS

The Cyclones bats were silent in Thursday night’s 4-1 loss to the Spikes, only picking up two hits and striking out 12 times. State College’s starting pitcher, Cody Schumacher, pitched 5.2 strong innings for the Spikes, holding the Cyclones to just one hit reaching a season high of seven strikeouts.

Cyclones right-handed pitcher, Casey Meisner entered Thursday night’s game hoping to bounce back after a rough last start on Saturday, July 5th. However, it was the Spikes who got on the board first, as they scored one in the bottom of the second inning. Nick Thompson led off with a double to get things started for the Spikes. Jake Stone then hit a single back up the middle, driving Thompson home and giving State College a 1-0 lead. Meisner was able to regain control and wiggle out of the inning, as Brian O’Keefe hit a ground ball to Jeff Diehl at first, who was able to turn the 3-6-1 double play and empty the bases. Jhohan Acevedo ended the inning with a fly out to Michael Bernal in right field.

In the bottom of the fourth with two outs, the Spikes made another threat, thanks to the first of two errors made by Wil Fulmer on the night. Jake Stone hit a routine groundball to second base, but the ball got away from Fulmer and Stone was able to reach first base safely. The next batter up, O’Keefe hit a ground rule double that bounced over the left field wall and put two runners in scoring position on second and third. Despite the shake up, Meisner got out of the jam as he ended the inning by getting Acevedo to ground out to Jhoan Ureña at third.

The State College bats made some noise again in the bottom of the fifth, as the Spikes extended their lead to 4-0. Ro Reyes hit a long ball over Joe Tuschak’s head in right center field to earn his first triple of the season. Danny Diekroeger drove in Reyes from third when he hit a sacrifice fly to center field, making in 2-0, Spikes. Alex De Leon kept things alive for the Spikes by hitting a 2 out single, also prompting Brooklyn to make the call to the bullpen and end Meisner’s night. Mike Hepple was bought in to face hot hitter Rowan Wick. Wick lines an RBI double between Tuschak in center and Michael Katz in left to add another run to State College’s lead. Wick was able to go on to score off an infield single hit to shortstop Amed Rosario by Thompson. Rosario tried to make the play at first, but Jeff Diehl had to scoop the ball out of the dirt at first and was unable to get the out. State College picked up a 4-0 lead.

The Cyclones were able to get on the board and score one run on one hit in the top of the eighth to lessen the Spikes lead to 4-1. Tyler Moore led off the inning, lining a triple to right field that was just a few feet shy from being a home run. With Moore at third and nobody out, Jeff Diehl came up to bat. Diehl struck out for the third time on the night, so Tomas Nido would have the chance knock in the run. Nido, who had the Cyclones only other hit, grounded out to third, but Moore was able to score on the throw to first to get Nido for the second out

Meisner was charged with the loss, as the series was evened 1-1. The Cyclones will look to take Game 3 and the series in tomorrow night’s lefty duel between Carlos Valdez and Austin Gomber.

The Cyclone will return home Wednesday, July 16th for a six game home stand. For tickets to next week’s games or any other home game this season, call 718-507- TIXX, visit the MCU Park Box Office, or log online to BrooklynCyclones.com.
