CYCLONES SWING AND MISS AGAINST BATAVIA, LOSE 4-2

CYCLONES SWING AND MISS AGAINST BATAVIA, LOSE 4-2

Despite Marcos Molina and Brandon Welch tying a season-high of 15 strikeouts, the Cyclones batters could not get their bats going, striking out 10 times as they dropped the first of three games against the Batavia Muckdogs.

Batavia jumped ahead with a productive bottom of the first, started by a leadoff double from the Muckdogs leadoff batter and second baseman Mason Davis. Molina was able to bear down and get the next two batters to strike out swinging, but another double by the cleanup hitter, Carlos Duran, would plate Davis and give Batavia an early 1-0 lead.

The Muckdogs would have a monster inning in the bottom of the fourth to build on their slim lead. Duran, who doubled to get Batavia’s first run across in the first would get things started with a single to center field. Following the single, the Muckdogs would get another two singles and a double to plate two batters before Molina could settle down and induce a ground ball for a double play. Another run would score on the double play, and then a strikeout would get Molina out of the inning, but not before the Muckdogs would take a 4-0 lead. As a result of the tough fourth inning for Molina, it would be the first time he would give up more than two earned runs in a game all season.

In the top of the sixth, the Cyclones managed to get on the board with some help from the Batavia defense. With one out, John Mora reached on an error by the catcher, Rodrigo Vigil. With Amed Rosario at the plate, a wild pitch by the Muckdogs’ starter would advance Mora over to second. Moments later, Rosario would hit a double to left, driving in Mora.

The very next inning, the Cyclones were able to tack on another run and cut the Batavia lead in half. Michael Bernal reached base on a one out single, and would tag up and move to second on a pop out by Adrian Abreu. After a walk by Jeffrey Diehl, the latest addition to the Cyclones roster, Pedro Perez, hit a single to left, driving in Bernal.

Welch entered to relieve Molina in the bottom of the seventh after Molina’s 6.0 innings of work where he gave up four runs on eight hits, while striking out 11. After striking out four batters in 2.0 innings of work, Welch and Molina combined for 15 strikeouts, which would tie the season-high for strikeouts by Cyclones pitchers.

Brooklyn would be unable to get anything going in the top of the ninth and would fall to Batavia in the series opener, 4-2.

The Cyclones return home on Tuesday for a series against the Lowell Spinners, and with tickets just starting at $10, there’s no reason to not be at MCU Park. Tickets can be purchased by visiting the MCU Park box office, by calling 718-507-TIXX, or by making a few clicks right here at BrooklynCyclones.com.
