YA WIN SOME, YA LOSE SOME - BKLYN SPLITS PAIR IN SI


Staten Island, NY – June 15, 2014 – The Cyclones split a pair with the Staten Island Yankees on Sunday, falling in extra innings in Game One by the score of 2-1 before taking the nightcap, 3-2. Michael Bernal's (pictured) RBI-double provided the winning margin for Brooklyn in Game Two.

In Game One, it looked like the Cyclones bats would pick up right where they left off on Saturday night, in a game where they scored eight runs against the Baby Bombers on Opening Day. Tucker Tharp started the game with a walk and moved to third on a single by Amed Rosarrio to put runners on the corners with nobody out. But Tyler Moore, Tomas Nido and Michael Bernal would all strikeout swinging to end the threat and set the tone for what would be a recurring theme in Game One.

In the bottom of the first the Yankees got on the board with an unearned run thanks to a sac fly from Chris Breen, following a Jhoan Ureña fielding error to take the early 1-0 advantage.

After matching zeroes in the second inning, the Cyclones drew even in the top of the third. Moore started the rally with a one-out single and Urena followed suit with single of his own to start the uprising and chase Yankees starter Sam Agnew-Wieland from the game. Chad Taylor came out of the bullpen and promptly walked the first two batters he faced, including Michael Katz with the bases loaded, to force in a run and knot the score at 1-1.

That is how it would stay for a while, as neither team was able to muster much offense. Through 8.0 innings, Cyclones starter Casey Meisner and reliever Mike Hepple allowed just four hits and four walks with one strikeout. Yankees pitchers matched every Brooklyn zero with one of their own, but did so in a completely different way. Brooklyn batters struck out a whopping 18 times in 9.0 innings and went 0-for-8 with runners in scoring position.

The game, which was scheduled to be seven innings as the first game of a doubleheaer, headed into extra frames and in the ninth, the Yankees would win it in walk off fashion…literally.

Cyclones reliever Eddie Vilasmil entered the game in the bottom of the ninth and quickly found himself in trouble. Collin Slybaugh walked to start the frame and moved into scoring position thanks to a sacrifice bunt from Isaias Tejada. Thairo Estrada was then issued a free pass to put a pair aboard for Staten Island. Austin Aune flied out to center for the second out of the frame, but Vilasmil would walk the next two batters he faced, including Ty McFarland with the bases loaded, to give Staten Island the 2-1 win.

GAME TWO

In the nightcap of the twinbill, the story was 19-year-old Marcos Molina who made the start for the Cyclones. The righthander tossed 6.0 impressive innings, allowing two runs, one earned, on three hits while walking one and striking out seven to collect the win, as Brooklyn defeated Staten Island 3-2.

For the second time in as many games, the Yankees took advantage of Cyclones miscues to draw first blood. Brady Steiger had a one-out single in the bottom of the second to start the threat before a pair of Cyclones errors from Dimas Ponce and Amed Rosario later in the frame allowed him to score and give Staten Island the 1-0 edge after two.

After being held scoreless for nine innings, dating back to Game One of the double dip, Brooklyn broke through in the top of the fourth. Michael Katz got things started with a booming double to left field and advanced to third on a two-out, infield single from Joe Tuschak. Then, it was the Cyclones who were able to take advantage of a miscue – this time a fielding error from Staten Island third baseman Renzo Martini - with Jeff Diehl at the plate. The Yankees miscue allowed both Katz and Tuschak to score and gave Brooklyn a 2-1 advantage.

The see-saw scoring continued in the bottom of the fifth when the Yankees would draw even. Yankees outfielder Austin Aune connected on a one-out double to scored Radley Haddad and tie the game at 2-2. But Molina was able to bear down and strike out the next two batters he faced to end the frame limit the damage.

The Cyclones quickly responded, grabbing a lead they wouldn’t relinquish in their next turn at bat. Katz reached on another error by the Yankees third baseman Renzo Martini to start the frame, and one batter later Michael Bernal pushed him home with a double off the left-centerfield wall to give Brooklyn the 3-2 lead.

That is how the game would end, as Juan Urbina made his 2014 Cyclones debut by tossing a scoreless seventh inning to close out the game and collect his first save of the young season.

The Cyclones and Yankees will square off in the finale of a four-game set on Monday night at MCU Park. The first 2,500 fans in attendance will have the opportunity to participate in the Cyclones garage sale and go home with some of our favorite bobbleheads, jerseys and more from years past. Plus there will be post-game fireworks and EVERYONE can run the bases post-game. LHP Carlos Valdez will make the start for the Cyclones and will be opposed by local product RHP Dillon McNamara for Staten Island. Tickets for the game, 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
