The Cyclones had their nine-game winning streak snapped on Tuesday night, dropping a 5-1 decision to Aberdeen. The nine-game streak was the longest of the season and helped Brooklyn get back into the NYPL playoff race. The Cyclones (43-29) remain a half-game ahead of Jamestown (42-29) for the wild card and three games back of Staten Island (46-26) for the division lead with four games to play. All three teams lost on Tuesday.
Brooklyn managed just four hits in the contest, with 2B Josh Satin
registering the lone extra-base hit with a line drive double to right field in the eighth inning. 3B Juan Lagares
now has hits in nine of his last ten games, while DH Jose Jimenez
and CF Sean Ratliff
singled in the first and third inning, respectively.
In his 11th start of the season for the Cyclones, RHP Jenry Mejia
worked seven innings and gave up four runs on four hits with seven strikeouts. Mejia (pictured, by George Napolitano)
now has at least six strikeouts in four of his last five starts. RHP Erik Turgeon
entered in the eighth inning and allowed an unearned run and a hit with two strikeouts.
The Cyclones return home on September 4th at 7 pm
to face the Hudson Valley Renegades. On Thursday, fans will receive a Cyclones' Team Photo.
