SITHCLONES (DARTH) MAUL THE TIGERS ON STAR WARS NIGHT

The Force was with Marcos Molina and the Cyclones, as Brooklyn defeated the Connecticut Tigers 8-1 in Saturday night’s battle at Star Wars Night at MCU Park. Right off the bat, both teams made noise in the first inning.

The Tigers first two batters, Rashad Brown and Brett Pirtle hit singles off of Brooklyn starter, Marcos Molina. Ross Kivett placed a sacrifice bunt down the line to advance the runners to second and third. With Michael Gerber at bat, Molina threw a wild pitch, which allowed the Tigers to put a run on the board. Molina was able to strike out Gerber and Joey Pankake to get out of the inning.

Brooklyn responded in the bottom of the first, scoring three runs off of Connecticut’s struggling starter, Josh Heddinger. Lead-off batter, John Mora, picked up his first Cyclones hit, which was followed by a single to left field from Amed Rosario. Michael Conforto drew a walk on four straight pitches, to load the bases for Jhoan Ureña. Heddinger walked Ureña and knocked in the Cyclones first run to tie the game at one. With the bases still loaded, Tyler Moore hit a sacrifice fly to left field, driving in the Cyclones second run. A wild pitch to Tomas Nido allowed runners to advance to second and third. Nido hit a sacrifice fly to center field and Conforto scored from third base to make it a 3-1.

Connecticut brought in Austin Pritcher from the bullpen to replace Heddinger on the mound with two outs in the first. Pritcher was to get Abreu to pop up to end the inning.

The Cyclones tacked on another run in the bottom of the third. Amed Rosario lined a triple off of the center field wall and came home to score, thanks to a sacrifice fly from Michael Conforto.

In the top of the fourth, the Tigers threatened to put another run on the board. With runners on first and second, Franklin Navarro singled to left field. However, as Joey Pankake raced for home, left fielder Michael Conforto gunned him down at the plate and picked up his fourth outfield assist of the season.

Adrian Abreu led off the bottm half of the fourth with a single and was moved to second when Tucker Tharp pushed a sacrifice bunt towards the mound. Dimas Ponce laced the ball into the left center gap and picked up his first triple of the season. John Mora was able to put the ball in the air and pick up an RBI on a sacrifice fly. With Ponce scoring, the Cyclones extended their lead to be 6-1.

The next inning, Brooklyn added another run to their lead, thanks to a long shot from Michael Conforto. Conforto laser beamed his first professional homerun, as they ball sailed over the right field wall.

Another inning meant another run for the Cyclones in the bottom of the sixth. Adrian Abreu leads off with an infield single. Tucker Tharp followed with a grounder to shortstop Joey Pankake, who makes an error and allows Abreu and Tharp remain on the bases. Ponce singled to right field to load the bases for the Cyclones top of the batting order. Amed Rosario popped out, but Abreu scored on the sacrifice hit. The Tigers bought in Jack Fischer from the bullpen to face Jhoan Ureña with the bases loaded. Fischer retired Ureña, getting him to ground out on one pitch.

After the first inning, Marcos Molina dominated on the mound through the eighth inning. He kept Connecticut to just one run and five hits. Cameron Griffin came in to close the game in the ninth inning. He retired three Tigers in a row to secure the Cyclones 8-1 victory.
