BKLYN Power Surge Leads to 9-4 Win


Morgantown, WV – August 9, 2017 – The Cyclones snapped their five game losing streak with a 9-4 win over the West Virginia Black Bears on Wednesday night. Franlin Correa led the offensive charge with a 2-for-4 effort with four RBI and one of the Cyclones three home runs in the game.

Brooklyn got things started early, scoring a pair in the top of the first to take a lead for the first time since August 2nd. After Walter Rasquin reached on a fielder’s choice, the recently named All-Star stole second and third but was able to stroll home after Quinn Brodey connected on his second home run of the year to give the Cyclones a 2-0 edge.

The lead would swell in the top of the second when Jose Maria connected on his third round tripper of the year, also a two-run shot, to make it 4-0 after two.

RHP Chris Viall made the start for Brooklyn and after a pair of 1-2-3 innings ran into trouble in the third. The tall righthander issued a pair of walks to start the frame and a two-out RBI single from Austin Meadows trimmed the Brooklyn advantage to 4-1.

The Cyclones pushed their lead back to four in the top of the fourth when Correa’s RBI ground out plated Jeremy Vasquez and gave the Cyclones a 5-1 edge.

But the ‘Bears clawed back in the bottom of the frame, scoring a pair off of Brooklyn reliever Placido Torres on a Lucas Tancas double that made it 5-3 after four.

The see-saw scoring continued in the fifth – with an RBI single from Jose M. Medina - and the sixth – on Correa’s first home run of the season – to push Brooklyn’s lead to 7-3.

But in the bottom of the sixth, West Virginia mounted a serious threat, loading the bases with nobody out against reliever Jake Simon. The southpaw issued a one-out walk to force home a run and make it 7-4. Nicolas Debora was then summoned from the Cyclones bullpen, with the bases loaded and just one out. But the righthander was able to strike out Chris Sharpe and got Austin Meadows to fly out to centerfield and end the threat and keep the Cyclones comfortably ahead.

Correa added a two-RBI double in the top of the eighth to round out the scoring and give Brooklyn the 9-4 win. Jake Simon (1-3) got the win after allowing just on run over his 2.0 innings of relief, and Debora got the save with three nearly-flawless innings to close out the game.
