TIGERS ROAR PAST BROOKLYN, 6-0

TIGERS ROAR PAST BROOKLYN, 6-0

Once again, the Brooklyn bats fell silent in Connecticut, while their feline counterparts were able to plate six and take the second game of the three-game set.

The Tigers pounced on the Cyclones early after stringing together three hits in the first inning to score two runs.

Leadoff batter Rashad Brown started his day off with a single to right field, and after a strikeout, would advance to second on a single by center fielder Ross Kivett. A ground out would advance the runners, putting them both in scoring position. Kasey Coffman would come up to the plate and hit a 2-out two-RBI double that would split the outfielders in left center, giving his team a 2-0 lead.

In the top of the second, the Cyclones were able to get their first hit on a single off the bat of Tyler Moore, but just as the team has been doing most of the season, they left Moore stranded despite him reaching base with just one down in the inning.

The Tigers tacked on another run in the bottom half of the second. Another leadoff single, this time from Steven Fuentes would put a runner on base. The next batter, Franklin Navarro would fly out to right field, but with Michael Bernal and his cannon of an arm in right, the ball did not make deep enough to advance the runner. During the next at-bat, Fuentes would steal second, and would advance to third on a single. He would score during the next at-bat on a ground out by Brown.

After another hitless Brooklyn frame, Connecticut played some more small ball and Kasey Coffman who reached first with one out after being hit by a pitch was able to make his way around all the bases and give the Tigers a 4-0 lead.

In the top of the fifth it seemed as if the Cyclones were going to be able to put some offense together and get on the board after consecutive one-out singles by Jeff Diehl and Joe Tuschak. Unfortunately a miscue on the base paths by Diehl on a lineout by Will Fulmer would result in a double play, ending the inning, as well as one of the only Cyclones scoring threats during the game.

After knocking starter Corey Oswalt out of the game in the fifth, giving way to Scarlyn Reyes. In the seventh inning, it was time for the Tigers to get some runs against the reliever. Consecutive singles followed by a ground out would put runners on second and third with just one out, putting Reyes in a jam. He was able to strike out the next batter, but a single that would score the two runners immediately after, putting an end to Reyes’ night.

The Cyclones would go down quietly in order in the top of the ninth and fall to Tigers once again.

The Cyclones will try to put an end to their three game skid and avoid being swept tomorrow evening as they wrap up their four-game series against Connecticut. Brooklyn will begin a six-game home stand on Wednesday as they kickoff a three-game set against Jamestown. Tickets are just starting at $10; purchase them by visiting the MCU Park box office, calling 718-507-TIXX, or BrooklynCyclones.com.
