THE COMEBACK KIDS WIN AGAIN

Box Score

The Brooklyn Cyclones (34-15) came back from a 2-0 deficit to defeat the Connecticut Tigers (26-23) by a score of 3-2 in extra-innings on Saturday night. The Cyclones are now 34-15 on the year, and 21-4 at MCU Park.  The win is the second straight 11th-inning walk-off win for Brooklyn, which improves to 3-1 in extra-inning games this season and 47-39 all-time. 

After the offense was held scoreless through six innings, 3B Brian Harrison (pictured, by George Napolitano) put Brooklyn on the board with his sixth home run of the season -- a booming shot off the top of the scoreboard in the seventh inning. LF Will Cherry continued the magic in the bottom of the ninth with a game-tying solo shot to left field. In the bottom of the 11th inning, Harrison scored the winning run from second base when J.B. Brown's sacrifice bunt attempt was thrown into right field.  C Juan Centeno went 3-for-4 and is now batting .591 at MCU Park this season.

RHP A.J. Pinera started for Brooklyn and threw five shutout innings, allowing six hits while striking out six.  Pinera owns a 1.86 ERA over his past six games since joining the rotation on July 12th. LHP Hamilton Bennett pitched the fifth and sixth innings, surrendering two unearned runs as a result of a couple of costly fielding errors by Brooklyn. RHP Brian Needham threw a scoreless eighth inning to hold the deficit to one run. RHP Daniel Carela entered in the ninth inning and held the Tigers to one hit while striking out four over two scoreless innings. Closer Ryan Fraser earned his second win with a perfect 11th inning.  Fraser has an 0.41 ERA this season, and has allowed just eight hits in 22.0 innings.

The Cyclones face off against the Tigers again on Sunday evening for the second game of the series at 5 pm. The first 2,500 fans in attendance will receive an MCU Park model presented by MCU. That evening is also Sunday Funday, where fans are welcome to play catch on the field prior to the game, and kids can run the bases after the game.  Make sure to visit the interns' silent auction, benefiting Reaching-Out Community Services.  A variety of autographed items and special-activity packages will be available. There will also be an arts and crafts table, featuring make-your-own-banner and paint- your-own-bobblehead stations.

There's something for everyone at every Cyclones game -- free t-shirts, free jerseys, bobbleheads, fireworks, free food, and more!
