COMEBACK KIDS SLAY MONSTERS

After trailing in the early part of the game, Brooklyn's bullpen shut down the Lake Monsters, and the offense scored four times in the eighth inning to beat Vermont by a run on Tuesday night, 4-3.

With the Cyclones trailing 3-0, Eric Campbell got things started in the top of the eighth with a double, before Sean Ratliff walked.  Kirk Nieuwenhuis' groundout then erased Campbell at third, but a Josh Satin infield single loaded the bases with one out.  Red-hot John Servidio then doubled to bring home the two lead runs and move Satin to third.  One out later, J.R. Voyles singled to center to bring home the tying and go-ahead runs.

Wendy Rosa held Vermont down in the eighth, before the tandem of Stephen Clyne and Yury Santana shut the door in the ninth.  Santana (pictured, by George Napolitano) picked up his team-high seventh save.

Brad Holt got the start for Brooklyn, but struggled in his first outing since his brilliant 14-strikeout performance last Thursday.  Holt allowed three runs (two earned) in 3.1 innings, before being relived by Matias Carrillo (1-0), who kept Brooklyn within striking distance with 3.2 scoreless frames for his first win of the season.

The Cyclones bullpen -- Carrillo, Rosa, Clyne, and Santana -- did not allow a hit over the final 5.2 innings.

Offensively, Brooklyn banged out nine hits, with Voyles going 3-for-4 and Campbell going 2-for-2.  Satin, Servidio, Jose Jimenez, and Ralph Henriquez also notched hits for the Cyclones.

The win moves Brooklyn (20-21) into third place in the McNamara Division, five games behind the Staten Island Yankees.  The Cyclones will face the Yankees at home on Saturday, August 2nd and Monday, August 4th.  A limited number of Box and Field Box seats are still available for the cross-borough showdown.
