CYCLONES FALL TO SCRAPPERS 6-2

Brooklyn, NY – July 18, 2013 -- The Cyclones were not able to comeback from an early deficit to the Mahoning Valley Scrappers as they fell 6-1. Dario Alvarez struggled through 5.0 IP, giving up five runs, four earned, seven hits and two walks.

Mahoning Valley was able to put across the first run of the game in the top of the second inning thanks to a Cyclones error. James Roberts led the inning off with a single to center bringing up Robel Garcia who popped out to Ismael Tijerina at shortstop for the first out of the inning. Josh McAdams then hit a dribbler down the third base line that Anthony Chavez fielded and threw the ball across the diamond in one motion just before McAdams arrived at first. Sicnarf Loopstock then hit a grounder to Chavez who would commit his ninth error on the season, allowing Roberts to score and give the Scrappers the 1-0 lead.

In the top of the fifth inning, Mahoning Valley would extend there lead to 2-0. Sicnarf Loopstock led the inning off with a triple before scoring off a Juan Romero single to left field. Alvarez was able to avoid further damage later in the inning with men on second and third with one out by inducing a ground ball and a strike out to keep the deficit t two runs.

Brooklyn would respond in the bottom of the fifth with a run to make the score 2-1. After Matt Oberste popped out for the first out, Julio Concepcion ripped a single to left bringing James Roche to the plate. Roche launched a double off the top of the left field wall scoring Concepcion to give Brooklyn its first run of the game.

The Scrappers would put the game out of reach in the top of the sixth inning when they put a three spot on the scoreboard. Alvarez walked James Roberts, the first batter of the inning which is never a good sign, then gave up a single to Robel Garcia, moving Roberts to second. With McAdams batting, Tomas Nido was charged with a passed ball allowing both runners to advance one base. With men on second and third and no out, Josh McAdams singled to center scoring Roberts and put men on the corners with no outs. Rich Donnelly then elected to bring in Cristian Chivilli who retired the first batter he faced, but Juan Romero singled to center scoring Robel and moving McAdams to second. With two outs and two on, Joel Mejia singled left scoring McAdams, giving the Scrappers a 5-1 advantage.
