CYCLONES TAME THE TIGERS, WIN 4-3

CYCLONES TAME THE TIGERS, WIN 4-3

With both teams in a tight Wild Card race, the Cyclones and Tigers battled for the final game of a three game series Monday Night. The two teams stayed neck and neck throughout the game, but the Cyclones walked away with the 4-3 win.

The Cyclones jumped on the board early, scoring three runs in the bottom of the first inning, which started when John Mora led off the bottom of the first with a double. Amed Rosario grounded a ball back to the Connecticut starting pitcher, Chase Edwards, who tried to get Mora at third, but the overthrown ball ended up in the stands for a dead ball. Mora scored and Rosario ended up at second base. The next batter, Michael Conforto, singled through the right side and drove in Rosario to score the Cyclones second run. Conforto was moved to second base when Jhoan Ureña grounded into a fielder’s choice. Michael Bernal knocked in an RBI single to score Conforto and give the Cyclones a 3-0 lead.

Connecticut was able to plate their first run of the night in the top of the second inning. Joey Pankake started the trouble for starter Casey Meisner, picking up a single and stolen base. After two strikeouts dealt by Meisner, Franklin Navarro struck out on a passed ball that catcher Tyler Moore chased and threw down to first, but hit Navarro in the ankle on the throw. The error from Moore allowed Pankake to score.

In the fourth inning, Joey Pankake started things up for the Tigers again with a double. Third baseman, Steven Fuentes knocked a sacrifice bunt back to Meisner, who retired him at first, but Pankake moved to third base. Ben Verlander then grounded out to shortstop Amed Rosario, but Pankake scored to close the Cyclones lead to be 3-2.

For his third at bat of the night, Joey Pankake tripled and once again posed a threat to Brooklyn’s lead. Steven Fuentes hit a fly ball out to Michael Bernal in right field, hoping it would be enough to score Pankake from third. However, a strong throw home from Bernal gets Pankake out in plenty of time and Meisner was able to get out of the jam.

Adrian Abreu laced a lead off double down the right field line. Connecticut’s reliever, Josh Laxer, balked to advance Abreu to third base. Jeff Diehl entered the game as a pinch hitter for Will Fulmer. Diehl, who is working his way back from an oblique injury, hit a single over shortstop Joey Pankake’s head to drive in Abreu as an insurance run for the Cyclones going into the eighth inning.

An error from third baseman, Jhoan Ureña, combined with a walk and Joey Pankake’s fourth hit of the night, led to another Connecticut run in the top of the eighth, but that wasn’t enough for the Tigers.

Casey Meisner picked up his second win of the season, pitching 6.0 innings and giving up just one earned run. Carlos Valdez relieved Meisner in the seventh inning, before handing the ball over to closer, Shane Bay with two outs in the eighth. Bay pitched the rest of the game, retiring the four batters he faced and picking up his 10th save of the season.

The Cyclones will have an off day on Tuesday and will hit the road for a six games, before returning to MCU Park on August 12th. For tickets to any of the remaining Cyclones games, you can call 718-507- TIXX, visit the MCU Park Box Office, or log onto BrooklynCyclones.com.
