SUPER CYCLONES BEAT CROSSCUTTERS 6-0 ON SUPERHERO NIGHT

The Cyclones were able to keep the runs coming on Sunday afternoon, defeating the Crosscutters for the second night in a row, this time 6-0.

Corey Oswalt took the mound for Brooklyn for the fifth time this season. In his first four starts, the team averaged just 1.75 runs per game, forcing the righty to pitch in plenty of close games. Fortunately, the Brooklyn offense was able to pick up right where they left off the night before and give Oswalt some room to breathe.

After a quiet top of the first from Williamsport, Brooklyn made some noise. Amed Rosario came up to bat and reached on an error by Williamsport starting pitcher Ricardo Pinto. Rosario’s partner in crime Jhoan Ureña moved him over to second and reached base with a sharp single into right field. Cyclones newcomer Michael Conforto advanced the runners on a ground out, bringing up Michael Katz.

On a 0-1 pitch, Katz hit a routine line drive at the left fielder Jiandido Tromp, who had to move a bit to his left to make the play. Unfortunately for Tromp, the ball hit off the heel of his glove and would drop to the ground. Katz would reach base and find himself on second base, all the while Ureña and Rosario would cross home plate and give the Cyclones a 2-0 lead.

The very next inning, the Cyclones would plate another 3 runners. The offensive blitz began with a single from Michael Bernal, and after an error on Tromp who had a miscue the inning before; Bernal was able to advance to second. Tomas Nido would drive in Bernal with a hard RBI-single up the middle. Tucker Tharp would walk, putting another run in scoring position with no outs. With Abreu at the plate showing bunt, on a 0-1 pitch, Nido stole third to put runners on the corner. Two batters later after a strikeout by Abreu and base running miscue on a Rosario fielder’s choice, Ureña slapped a double into the gap in left field to drive in Rosario and Tharp, giving Brooklyn an early 5-0 lead.

In the bottom of the fourth inning, it looked like the Cyclones were going to extend their lead a bit more. Adrian Abreu reached base on a one-out error by Williamsport shortstop and during the next at-bat he would steal second. Rosario would move Abreu over to third base on a ground out. During Jhoan Ureña’s at-bat, Williamsport relief pitcher Manny Martinez threw a wild pitch that Abreu tried to advance on. However, a nice toss from the catcher to Martinez at the plate who would apply the tag would get him out of the inning.

The Cyclones would extend their lead the next inning on Williamsport’s fifth error of the game when shortstop Emmanuel Marrero could not track down a 2-out infield hit by Michael Bernal that would plate Michael Conforto, who made it all the way from second base on the play.

After pitching 7.0 innings of two-hit baseball, Scarlyn Reyes entered the game for Oswalt, who also struck out five batters on the night. His performance against the Crosscutters is arguably his best performance of the season, and is on par with his excellent game against Hudson Valley at MCU Park on June 23rd, when he threw 7.0 innings of shutout baseball, scattering three hits, and striking out seven.

Reyes would pitch the ninth as well and get through another 1-2-3 inning, giving Brooklyn another victory.

The Cyclones have one more home game against the Crosscutters tomorrow at 11:30 AM before going out on the road to take on the Aberdeen IronBirds in a two-game set. Tickets start at just $10 and you can purchase them either at the MCU Park box office, call 718-507-TIXX, or right here on BrooklynCyclones.com.
