TIGERS ROAR PAST BROOKLYN, 4-1

Brooklyn loses 4-1

Brooklyn, NY -- August 6, 2013 -- A rough third inning in which Brooklyn committed two errors led to a Cyclones loss to the Connecticut Tigers on Tuesday night, 4-1. The Cyclones have been flirting with .500 for the past week, and after the loss find themselves one game under at 23-24. Darwin Frias pitched the last five innings striking out nine batters, after striking out nine in his last appearance.

Dario Alvarez got the start for the Cyclones and allowed one earned run through four innings pitched. All of the runs against Alvarez came in the third innings, but three were unearned due to errors from Matt Oberste and Colton Plaia. After hitting Tyler Gibson with a pitch, Alvarez caught Gibson trying to steal second and threw to Oberste at first. Oberste bobbled the ball on the release allowing Gibson to take second. Alvarez then allowed a walk and a bunt single to load the bases. Dominic Ficociello followed with a two RBI single putting runners on first and second. On a double steal attempt, Plaia threw the ball far left of Juan Gamboa’s glove allowing the runner stealing third to score, and advancing Ficociello to third. Ficociello scored on a sac fly to give the Tigers a 4-0 lead.

The Cyclones produced a run in the bottom of the fourth thanks to the hustle of Jonathan Clark. Clark reached on an infield single to lead off the inning. He then stole second putting himself in scoring position for Gamboa. Gamboa then hit a groundball through the right side of the infield allowing Clark to score with no throw from right field, cutting the deficit to 4-1.

Frias did a fantastic job pitching in relief of Alvarez. Frias came into Tuesday with a high strikeouts per nine inning ratio of 11.2. Frias continued to make batters swing and miss tying a season high by striking out nine Tigers batters. In addition to his nine strikeouts, Frias tossed five innings, allowing no runs and two hits. The Cyclones outhit the Tigers 6-to-5, with L.J. Mazzilli finishing 2-for-4 and a double. Mazzilli leads the team with 15 multi-hit games.
