Brooklyn, NY – July 23rd -The Brooklyn Cyclones continue to struggle with the bats as they fall to the Aberdeen IronBirds, 2-0.
Julian Hilario was on the mound for the sixth time this year, still in search of his first win of the season as he faced the IronBirds. Hilario pitched 6.0 strong innings, giving up two runs, three hits and walking two batters.
The IronBirds scored first in the fourth inning as Christian Walker led off the inning with a single to right field. Torsten Boss then doubled to deep left center field moving Walker to third base with no outs. After Hilario was able to strike out Joel Hutter for the first out, Will Howard grounded out to Jayce Boyd, allowing Walker to score the first run of the game.
In the sixth inning the IronBirds would plate the second run of the game giving them a 2-0 lead. Walker would lead off the inning again, this time he walked. Just like the fourth inning, Boss doubled to move Walker to third with no outs. Hilario then fielded a sharply hit grounder up the middle by Hutter, forcing Walker to stay at third as he threw to first for the first out. Howard would collect his second RBI of the night as he lifted a fly ball to left field that was deep enough to score Walker.
After Matt Koch came in to the game in the seventh and retired the first batter he faced, the rain started to come and the tarp had to go on the field. After a 54-minute delay, Beck Wheeler came into the game in the seventh inning with one out and retired Scott Kalush and Anthony Vega to end the seventh. Wheeler and David Wynn combined to close out the remainder of the game without allowing a hit, but the Brooklyn bats were held in check as they fell 2-0.
