Cyclones Skid Hits Seven


BROOKLYN, NY – August 18, 2017 -- The Cyclones and IronBirds waited two hours and 23 minutes to get started on Friday night, but in the end the Aberdeen IronBirds were able to complete the three-game sweep with a 10-4 win over Brooklyn. OF Quinn Brodey led the offensive charge with a 3-for-5 effort to pace the Brooklyn bats.

At approximately 9:03 P.M., baseball was finally played in MCU Park as the Brooklyn Cyclones took on the Aberdeen IronBirds in the final game of a three-game stretch. As starter Trent Johnson (2-5) delivered the first pitch, lightening illuminated the sky above the batter’s eye.

Brooklyn would open the scoring in the first inning as Quinn Brodey scored Walter Rasquin with a two-out double to deep left field. Rasquin lead off the inning with a single and advanced to second thanks to a throwing error. He looked to be stranded at third before Brodey recorded his 27th RBI of the year.

Aberdeen’s high-power offense would get going in the second after a leadoff double, followed by a walk. Luke Ringhofer ripped a double to left that was misplayed by Cecilio Aybar and allowed the tying run to score. The go-ahead run would come across thanks to a ground-out.

Rasquin would come to the plate with two on and two out in the second, before lining out.

On the mound for BKLYN was tall hurler Trent Johnson. Facing the ‘Birds for the fourth time, he struggled. In the third, three straight hits resulted in the third run of the game for Aberdeen. In his first two starts against the visitors, Johnson allowed six runs. His last, and most successful, outing saw the former-19th rounder throw four scoreless innings in the lone win for a Cyclones starter. A two-RBI single by Trevor Craport would bust the game open, and make it 5-1.

The ‘Birds would add two more before BKLYN added their second run. A two-out double by Rasquin and a single by Jose Miguel Medina made it 7-2, in the fifth.  Carl Stajduhar grounded into a double play, that also brought home a run, and cut the deficit to four.

Ben Breazeale then clobbered a three-run shot in the seventh to make it 10-3, and eliminated any hope of a comeback from the 'Clones.  Brodey added an RBI single in the bottom of the ninth to make the final score 10-4.

Brooklyn will head to Tri-City on Saturday to open a three-game set with the ValleyCats at Bruno Stadium.  The team will return home on Tuesday to open a series with the Hudson Valley Renegades.
