The Cyclones lost an extra-inning affair on Saturday, by a score of 6-1, when Mahoning Valley plated five runs in the 10th inning. The loss drops Brooklyn to a game over .500, bringing the Cyclones' record to 10-9.
2B Josh Satin hit the Cyclones' first home run of the year at home; it came in the bottom of the fourth inning to score Brooklyn first and only run of the game. SS Reese Havens continued his hot hitting, picking up a pair of hits and raising his average to .250. 1B Ike Davis also extended his hitting streak to ten games, with at least one hit in every game in which he's played.
RHP Scott Shaw (pictured, by George Napolitano) made the start for the Cyclones, pitching 5.1 innings and allowing just one run. LHP Jimmy Johnson relieved Shaw and pitched a scoreless two thirds of an inning. RHP Chris Schwinden (0-1) picked up the loss, tossing 3.0 innings, giving up four hits and allowing two runs. LHP Matias Carrillo came on in the 10th and allowed two walks and gave up a grand slam.
The Cyclones continue their series against the Scrappers on Sunday, when it will be “Sunday Runday” at KeySpan Park. After every Sunday home game, kids run the bases on the field. The kids take off from first base, and race all the way around to home plate, where they are greeted by the Brooklyn birds -- Sandy and Pee Wee!
Sunday’s game will also be presented by the Cancer Treatment Centers of America, as they honor “Conquer Cancer Now”.
