CYCLONES FALL IN EXTRAS, 2-1

BOX SCORE

PLAY- BY-PLAY

The Cyclones and Mahoning Valley Scrappers faced off for the first time this season in Wednesday night’s 12 inning pitching duel. However, the Scrappers were able stir things up and walk away with the 2-1 win. 

Scarlyn Reyes dominated as he took the mound for the Cyclones for his fourth start of the season and kept the Scrapper bats silent. Reyes threw six scoreless innings and only gave up two hits and one walk.

Mahoning Valley’s pitching staff also put together a stellar performance, keeping the Cyclones to just four hits through the first seven innings and defused any scoring threat. John Maronde threw the first two innings for the Scrappers, before Cameron Hill took over from the bullpen for the next four.

The Brooklyn bats managed a small threat to Cameron Hill, during the top of the sixth, when John Mora tripled with two outs. Amed Rosario then skied a ball over the head of Greg Allen in center field, but Allen made a running over the shoulder catch to end the inning and save the go ahead run from scoring.

Gaither Bumgardner came in for the Cyclones to pitch the seventh inning, making his first appearance since July 18th, after being absent from the team for a couple weeks, due to a death in the family. Bumgardner worked into a jam, walking Murphy and McClure to put runners on base for the Scrappers. David Armendariz grounded out, but advanced the runners to second and third base.

Southpaw, Kelley Secrest was bought in to replace Bumgardner with two outs in the bottom of the seventh to face the Scrappers left-handed batter Austin Fisher. Secrest was unable to work out of the jam, when he threw his first wild pitch of the season to allow Mahoning Valley to score the first run of the night.

However, the next half inning, the Cyclones were able to put a run on the board to tie the game in the top of the eighth. Adrian Abreu walked and was able to advance to third when Will Fulmer grounded out to third baseman Yonathon Mendoza. With two outs and the tying run on third, John Mora knocked in the tying run and his second extra base hit of the game, as he doubled to left field. The Cyclones couldn’t manage to get the go ahead run home, so the game remained tied.

In the top of the ninth, the Cyclones missed a key opportunity to break the tie, as they left two runners on in scoring position. The spark started with a single from Jhoan Ureña. After battling through a long at-bat, Tyler Moore roped his third hit of the night and moved Ureña to third. Tucker Tharp entered the game to pinch run for Moore and picked up a stolen base with Michael Bernal up to bat. Bernal popped out for the second out of the inning, leaving it to designated hitter Jeff Diehl, who flew out to center field to end the inning.

The drama continued into the bottom of the ninth when the Scrappers put the pressure on Eddie Villasmil. With one out, D’vone McClure hit a single and moved to second base, thanks to a passed ball that got by catcher Adrian Abreu. However, Villasmil was able to get Austin Fisher to pop out and Yonathon Mendoza to strike out. The pitching duel continued to lead the game into extra innings.

After a few innings of back and forth threats from both teams, the Scrappers were able to break the tie in the bottom of the 12th inning off of Luis Rengel. Yonathon Mendoza hit a lead off single to get things started for the Scrappers and advanced to second base when a ball got passed Abreu behind the plate. Leo Castillo bunted a barely fair ball in front of the plate that allowed both Mendoza and Castillo to occupy the corners. With no one out, Rengel intentionally walked Francisco Mejia to face Taylor Murphy. Murphy was able to hit the ball in the air to successfully execute the sacrifice fly and drive in the game-winning run.

The Cyclones and Scrappers will play again at 7 PM Thursday night, with newcomer Matires Arias taking the mound for Brooklyn. The Cyclones will return home to MCU Park on Tuesday, August 12th for a three game series against Lowell.
