CYCLONES LEAVE LOWELL SPINNING, 9-3

CYCLONES LEAVE LOWELL SPINNING IN CIRCLES, 9-3

On Sunday, the Cyclones took to the road and traveled north to take on the Lowell Spinners for the first time this season. In the first game of a three-game set, the Cyclones defeated Lowell 9-3.

Brooklyn got on the board first with some help from newcomer Michael Conforto who entered the game with a seven game hit streak, representing a hit in each game he has played as a professional.

The Cyclones leadoff hitter, Adrian Abreu reached base with a single. Right after, the Cyclones swapped base runners on a ground out where the Spinners were only able to get Abreu out, putting shortstop Amed Rosario on base. Two batters, and one out later, Conforto slapped a double into left field to bring Rosario in all the way from second base.

The early Brooklyn lead would fade away quickly as the Spinners would plate two in the bottom of the second and one in the bottom of the third. After a single and walk with just one out in the bottom of the second, Brooklyn starter Marcos Molina put himself in a difficult spot. A ground ball would give Brooklyn a much needed out, but the Spinners would still threaten, with runners on the corners. Another single to left field would plate the first run of the inning. After the single, the Spinners second baseman Raymel Flores bunted for a single, and an errant throw by Molina would get another runner across for Lowell in the second.

In the bottom of third, the Spinners leadoff batter, Danny Mars hit a ground ball into the hole between first baseman Michael Katz and second baseman Tyler Moore. Moore was able to get to the ball and tried to get Mars at first and as Katz was trying to catch Moore’s attempt he twisted his knee. The play would be ruled as a hit, and Katz would have to exit the game. As a result, Michael Bernal entered the game at right field and Will Fulmer who started the game in right field, was moved to first base.

A passed ball by Abreu during the next at-bat would move Mars over to second and shortly after during the same at-bat, Sam Travis would hit a single to right, which would be good enough to plate Mars.

Brooklyn would bounce back in the top of the fourth, tying the game on a single by Will Fulmer. Fulmer’s hit would score Bernal, who reached base earlier on a single, and later stole second.

The Cyclones would regain the lead in the fifth with the help of some small ball. To start the inning, Adrian Abreu walked and Amed Rosario singled, to put runners on first and second for Jhoan Ureña. Ureña would ground the ball over to short, but the Spinners would only be able to get Rosario at second, putting runners on the corners for Brooklyn. A walk by Michael Conforto would load the bases for Michael Bernal.

Entering Sunday’s game, the Cyclones struggled with the bases loaded, only batting .200 (5-for-25) in bases loaded situations. Despite the team’s earlier struggles, Bernal was able to pull a ball into left that would plate Abreu and Ureña, giving Brooklyn a two-run advantage.

After tacking on another run in the sixth, the Cyclones blew the game wide open in the eight inning. Tucker Tharp got things started with a one-out walk and then advance to second on a walk by Abreu. Amed Rosario would single up the middle to score Tharp and send Abreu to third, bringing up Ureña.

Entering the game, Ureña was riding a 12-game hitting streak and until this point in the game, he had not picked up a hit to extend it to 13 games and tie his previous hit streak total. Fortunately for Ureña, he was able to pull a ball into right field that would not only extend his hit streak, but give him an RBI as Abreu would score from third. After a strikeout by Conforto, another Michael, Bernal, entered the batters box and jacked the ball into left for a two-RBI double. The hit would give Brooklyn their 14th hit, and ninth run of the game, breaking their previous single-game highs.

After a scoreless bottom half of the eighth and top of the ninth, lefty Paul Paez entered the game to close out the game for Brooklyn.  Paez would toss a scoreless ninth and the Cyclones would go on to win 9-3.

After two more games against Lowell, the Cyclones return home for a six-game homestand against the Auburn Doubledays, and the Connecticut Tigers, starting on Wednesday night. Tickets start at just $10 and can be purchased by visiting the MCU Park Box Office, call 718-507-TIXX, or visit BrooklynCyclones.com.
