Brooklyn Blanks the Yanks, 6-0

Staten Island, NY – August 27, 2017 – The Brooklyn Cyclones took the rubber game of a three-game series from the cross-bridge rival Staten Island Yankees by the score of 6-0 on Sunday evening. It marks the first time since July 20th and 21st that the Cyclones have won back-to-back games. While Brooklyn is now 17-47 on the season, they lead the season series against the Staten Island Yankees, who have the New York-Penn League's best record, 6 games to 5. Four Cyclones relievers combined on the shutout, Brooklyn’s first of the season.

Staten Island Yankees ace Jorge Guzman made the start for the Baby Bombers and for the second time this season, Brooklyn was up to the challenge, handing the flame-throwing righthander his second loss in three starts against Brooklyn.

Brooklyn wasted little time getting on the board, as Walter Rasquin worked a one-out walk in the first, stole second and advanced to third on a throwing error on the steal attempt. With Jose Medina at-bat, Keith Skinner allowed a pitch from Guzman to skip passed him, allowing Rasquin to score the game’s first run.

In the second inning, Wagner Lagrange singled in his first at-bat as a Cyclone and moved up to third on a double from Jose Maria to put a pair of runners in scoring position with nobody out. Scott Manea, last night’s walk-off hero, then singled to plate the pair and extend Brooklyn’s lead to 3-0.

Brooklyn’s offense continued the offensive onslaught in the third with back-to-back doubles from Rasquin and Medina plating a run and Wagner Lagrange tacking on an RBI single that made it 5-0. And an inning later Rasquin added an RBI single to make it 6-0 headed to the bottom of the fourth.

LHP Jake Simon made the start for Brooklyn and worked in and out of trouble all night long. His evening would come to the end in the bottom of the fourth when he left the game with a pair of runners aboard and one out before Gregorix Estevez (3-1) came out of the bullpen and escaped the jam. Simon went 3.1 innings, scattering five hits and three walks, but was able to keep Staten Island off the board.

Estevez, Cannon Chadwick and Trey Cobb combined for 5.2 shutout innings out the bullpen to complete the shutout.

The Cyclones will now return to MCU Park to open a seven-game homestand with a three-game set against the Vermont Lake Monsters starting Monday night at 7:05 PM. We will paint the park pink as partner with the American Cancer Society to get ready for the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk coming to Coney Island this fall.
