ABREU PUTS CYCLONES ON HIS BACK; DOWN BOMBERS 11-3

ABREU PUTS CYCLONES ON HIS BACK; DOWN BOMBERS 11-3

With their season on the line, the Cyclones got their bats going against the Staten Island Yankees to keep their postseason hopes alive, defeating the baby bombers 11-3. Despite the victory, the Cyclones are still tied with the Connecticut Tigers for first in the wild card race, and should Connecticut win tomorrow, the Cyclones would be eliminated as the Tigers own the tie-breaker.

Brooklyn got their offensive explosion started with a productive bottom of the first inning, capitalizing on a pair of defensive miscues by the Yankees. To leadoff, John Mora and Amed Rosario reached on errors by Staten Island shortstop Jose Javier, and second baseman Billy Fleming. The runners would advance on a ground out by Michael Conforto. Another groundout, this time by Jhoan Ureña would plate Mora, while Rosario would move up to third on the throw. Tomas Nido, who was a late addition to lineup would drive in Rosario with a softly hit grounder that got through up the middle for a single.

The Cyclones would tack on another pair of runs in the bottom of the second, once again with help of shoddy Staten Island defense. Michael Bernal was able to reach base after working a one out walk, and would come all the around to score during the next at-bat as Brooklyn newcomer J.C. Rodriguez hit a triple. Rodriguez’s hit to left would’ve been a single at most, but Staten Island’s left fielder Nathan Mikolas slipped and the ball rolled passed him to the wall, getting in for a triple. Rodriguez would cross the plate during the same inning on a sacrifice fly by Mora.

In the bottom of the third, Brooklyn would have an explosive inning, plating four runners to take a commanding 8-0 lead. Conforto led off the inning with a single and would come around to score during the next at-bat as Ureña would hit a double off the wall in left. Ureña would exit the game and Anthony Chavez would take his place. Jhoan’s double would be followed up by a Nido walk, and both runners would come around to score on a three run moonshot over the left field wall off the bat of Adrian Abreu to give the Cyclones an 8-0 lead.

The baby bombers would get a run across in the top of the fourth as second baseman Billy Fleming reached base with a leadoff single. He would advance to second on a ground out by Connor Spencer, then come around to score on a double in the left-center gap by Collin Slaybaugh.

Brooklyn starter Alberto Baldonado would exit the ballgame after tossing 5.0 strong innings. Entering Sunday’s game, Baldonado was 2-1 with a 1.86 ERA over his last five starts. His great streak continued as he only gave up one run on four hits, while striking out a season high seven batters.

Carlos Valdez took over for Baldonado in the sixth inning and tossed 2.0 innings. During his first inning of work, Valdez gave up a two-run shot to the baby bombers’ catcher Isaias Tejeda that would cut the Cyclones lead down to five runs.

In the bottom of the seventh, the Cyclones strung together a handful of two-out hits to give themselves some more padding, extending their lead to eight runs. With Conforto on second and two outs in the bottom of the seventh, Pedro Perez broke out of his slump with an rbi double that made its way into the left-center gap. Abreu followed it up with a hard grounder that hugged the line and got into deep left, plating Perez. Luis Arrizurieta entered as a pinch hitter, playing in his first Cyclones game since July 20th and plated Abreu with an rbi single.

Brandon Welch would enter in the ninth and close out the game for Brooklyn as they went on to pick up their 41st victory of the season by a score of 11-3.
