CYCLONES SCRAP TOGETHER 4-2 VICTORY

CYCLONES SCRAP TOGETHER 4-2 VICTORY

Led by a strong offensive performance by Jeffrey Diehl, the Cyclones were able to take the third and final game in their series against the Mahoning Valley Scrappers, taking two of three in the series as they hold onto their one-game lead in the wild card race.

The Cyclones jumped ahead early, getting a run on the board in the top of the first inning. John Mora led off for Brooklyn with a walk, and traded runners on a fielder’s choice by Amed Rosario. Rosario advanced to second on a ground out by Michael Conforto, but would come around to score when Jhoan Ureña would hit a single to left.

In the bottom half of the third, Mahoning Valley took the lead, plating two batters in the inning. A one-out single from the Scrappers’ ninth-place batter Yonathan Mendoza and error by Conforto, followed up by a walk would put runners on first and second. Despite striking out the next batter, Brooklyn starter Corey Oswalt would not be able to escape the inning, as a single and another throwing error, this time from Mora would give the Scrappers a 2-1 lead.

Brooklyn would return fire in the top half of the fourth to take the lead, which they would hold onto for the rest of the night. Michael Bernal was able to get on base by working a one-out walk, and would advance to third on a single by Adrian Abreu. With runners on the corners, Jeffrey Diehl pulled the ball down the left-field line that would drop in for a double, driving in both Bernal and Abreu.

In the seventh, the Cyclones were able to tack on an insurance run after a crucial defensive miscue by first baseman Leo Castillo on a pickoff attempt. Castillo would miss catching the ball, bringing in Dimas Ponce from third base, and giving Brooklyn a 4-2 lead.

Oswalt would not pitch the seventh inning, but still had another strong outing. Through 6.0 innings he only gave up two runs, one earned, on six hits, and struck out three.

The ball would then be placed in the hands of Cameron Griffin in the seventh and Kelly Secrest in the eight. Both would pitch scoreless innings, carrying it over to Shane Bay in the ninth. Bay would pitch a perfect bottom of the ninth, capped off by a strikeout to end the game as the Cyclones would go on to win 4-2.

Coney Island’s boys of summer return home on Tuesday for a three-game set against the Lowell Spinners. Tickets just start at $10 and can be purchased at the MCU Park Box Office, by calling 718-507-TIXX, or by making a few clicks right here at BrooklynCyclones.com.
