GSELLMAN SHINES OVER YANKEES, 2-0

Brooklyn, NY -- July 26, 2013 -- Rob Gsellman had pitched all season having one of the best ERAs in the NYPL but no wins to show for it. That all changed Friday in a 2-0 win over the Staten Island Yankees. The baby bombers had a lot of trouble against Gsellman , who lowers his ERA to 1.74. Both Cyclones runs came from catcher Eddie Rohan. Rohan showed his power with a long ball and an RBI double.

Gsellman had not allowed an earned run in his first three starts of the season through 18 innings. Friday’s start was more of the same for Gsellman, who tossed seven scoreless innings, allowing no runs, no walks, two hits, and striking out five. The Yankees only two hits off Gsellman came in the bottom of the fourth inning from Eric Jagielo and Yeicok Calderon. Ricky Knapp came in relief in the eight to pitch two innings of no run ball, recording his first save of the season.

Brooklyn catchers this year have a combined batting average of just .201 (27-134). However, Eddie Rohan had his best hitting performance of the season, going 2-3, with a home run and 2 RBI. Rohan came into Friday with only one RBI for the Cyclones, but tripled his season total in the fifth inning.

After Yankees starter Conner Kendrick retired the first seven batters he faced, Rohan took him yard on a home run over the right field fence, giving the Cyclones the lead, 1-0. That was all Gsellman would need, but Rohan added an insurance run in the top of the fifth on an RBI double, making it 2-0 Cyclones. Rohan’s double scored Alex Sanchez from first, who had reached on a single to left field.

The Cyclones are on the road until Sunday when they come back to MCU Park to take on the Hudson Valley Renegades on July 28 at 5:00 PM for the first of a two game series. For tickets call 718-507-TIXX, go to the MCU ticket window or click here.
