BROOKLYN USES YANKEES MISCUES TO RUN AWAY WITH 3-2 WIN

BK DOWNS SI, 3-2


Staten Island, NY – July 27, 2013 – The Cyclones took advantage of three Staten Island Yankees errors, scoring three unearned runs, as Brooklyn defeated the Baby Bombers by the score of 3-2 on Saturday night. For the Cyclones, it was their third straight win, and the team improved their record to 18-20.

Patrick Biondi led off the game with a single, his first of three hits on the night, and would later come around to score on a fielding error by Yankees shortstop Jose Rosario, to give the Cyclones the 1-0 lead after one.

With Miller Diaz, the reigning NYPL Pitcher of the Week, cruising on the mound for the Cyclones, it seemed that lead would be insurmountable. But after not allowing a runner past second based in the first four innings, the righthander ran into trouble in the fifth. Isais Tejada walked to start the threat, and moved to second on the first out of the inning. After a wild pitch moved him to third base, Jose Rosario made up for his earlier fielding gaff with a line drive single to right that chased home Tejada and made tied the score at 1-1. One batter later, Diaz uncorked another wild pitch, allowing the go-ahead run to move into scoring position before Brandon Thomas connected on an RBI single to make it 2-1 in favor of the Baby Bombers after five innings.

After Diaz pitched a scoreless sixth, the Cyclones rallied in the seventh to give the righthander a chance to collect the win. Colton Plaia started the two-out rally by reaching on a fielding error by Yankees second baseman Derek Toadvine. Juan Gamboa followed with a single to put the tying and go-ahead runners on base for Biondi. The former Michigan Wolverine took advantage of the scoring chance, lining a single to left field that was misplayed by Daniel Lopez and allowed both runners to score, giving Brooklyn the 3-2 advantage and allowing Biondi to make it all the way to third base.

Kevin McGowan took the ball for the Cyclones in the seventh, and tossed 3.0 shutout innings, allowing just one hit and striking out five to close out the win and collect his second save of the season.

The Cyclones will look to continue their winning ways on Sunday when they return to MCU Park to take on the Hudson Valley Renegades in the first game of a brief two-game set. RHP John Gant will take the mound for Brooklyn. The first 3,000 fans in attendance will receive a Cyclones travel mug, and it’s also a Sunday Funday featuring pre-game autographs and post-game kids run the bases. Tickets, which start at just $10, are on sale now by calling 718-507-TIXX, visiting the MCU Park Box office, or right here at BrooklynCyclones.com
