BKLYN Tops Vermont, 2-1

 


Brooklyn, NY – August 28, 2017 – The Cyclones extended their winning streak to three-games thanks to a 2-1 victory over the Vermont Lake Monsters on Monday night at MCU Park. Trent Johnson tossed 6.1 innings of shutout baseball, scattering five hits, but did not factor in the decision. Brooklyn managed just four hits on the night, but had three stolen bases, that would lead be pivotal in Brooklyn's tallies for the night.

After trading zeroes for the first two innings, Brooklyn took the lead in the bottom of the third. Guillermo Grandillo worked a one out walk and moved into scoring position with a stolen base before Walter Rasquin singled to plate the game’s first run.

With offense at a premium, the 1-0 lead looked like it would be enough for the Cyclones, but in the top of the eighth the Lake Monsters were able to break through. With Conner O’Neil (1-2) on the mound, Will Toffey has hit by a pitch to start the frame and advanced to second on a passed ball. With the tying run in scoring position and one out, Logan Farrar doubled into the right-centerfield gap to bring home Toffey and knot things up at 1-1. O’Neil was able to stop the rally there though, as he got a ground out and strike out to end the frame with the score tied and the go-ahead run stranded in scoring postion.

It didn’t take long for Brooklyn to break the tie, although they did it in a rather unusual fashion. With Malik Jones on the mound, Walter Rasquin struck out swinging on a ball in the dirt, but reached when strike three eluded the Vermont catcher for a wild pitch. The Brooklyn speedster then stole second and moved over to third on another wild pitch. Then, with Jose Medina still batting, the third wild pitch in a span of five pitches allowed Rasquin to score the go-ahead run without the benefit of a hit.

Marcel Renteria was then summoned from the Brooklyn bullpen to close out the game, striking out three batters in the ninth, to collect his first professional save.

Brooklyn will look to match their season-high four game winning streak when they take on the Lake Monsters in the middle game of the three-game set. RHP Chris Viall will make the start for Brooklyn looking to build on his most recent outing when he struck out six batters over 4.0 shutout innings.
