BK & CT Split Doubleheader


Norwich, CT – September 4, 2017 – The Brooklyn Cyclones won their sixth straight game on Monday afternoon, defeating the Connecticut Tigers by the score of 2-1 in Game One of a doubleheader at Dodd Stadium. Brooklyn has now won nine of their last 10 games and have allowed just 11 earned runs over their last 85 innings (1.16 ERA). It marked the 11the straight game in which Brooklyn pitchers have allowed three runs or less.

After trading zeroes through the first two innings, the Tigers drew first blood in the bottom of the third. Teddy Hoffman and Andres Sthormes had back-to-back singles to start the frame, but Ryan McAuliffe was able to induce a ground ball to double play that left a runner on third with two outs. But with Hector Martinez at the plate, McAuliffe uncorked a wild pitch that allowed Hoffman to score the game’s first run to give Connecticut a 1-0 edge.

But Brooklyn responded quickly, taking the lead in their next turn at bat. Wagner Lagrange led off the top of the fourth with a walk and Jose Medina followed with a single to put runners on the corners with nobody out. Medina then stole second base to put a pair of runners in scoring position, and Jeremy Vasquez took advantage of the scoring chance with a single to centerfield to score the pair and give Brooklyn a 2-1 edge.

Ryan McAuliffe’s day came to an end after 4.0 innings of one run baseball. The former St. John’s product scattered six hits while striking out three before turning the ball over to Stephen Villines who added 2.0 shutout frames with a pair of hits and four strikeouts. The righthander now has 29 strikeouts in 18.1 innings with the Cyclones this season.

But in the bottom of the seventh, the final frame of Game One of the doubleheader, Marcel Renteria ran into trouble. Renteria got Teddy Hoffman, the leadoff batter, to strike out swinging but then allowed a single to Andres Sthormes, who moved to second on a wild pitch, before intentionally walking Luke Burch to put the game-winning run aboard. Gregorix Estevez was then summoned from the bullpen and got Hector Martinez to ground into a 5-4-3 double play to end the threat, and the game.


GAME TWO -- In the nghtcap, the Tigers defeated Brooklyn 2-0 with the Cyclones managing just two hits.  RHP Jose Geraldo (1-3) was tagged with the loss after allowing a run on three hits with three walks over 5.0 innings on the mound.  The Tigers tacked on insurance run against RHP Trey Cobb in the bottom of the sixth to make the final score 2-0.

OF Wagner Lagrange and OF Jose Medina each collected a single - the lone base hits of the game for Brooklyn.
