CYCLONES LOSS IS ONE TO FORGET, FALL TO YANKEES 7-2

CYCLONES LOSS IS ONE TO FORGET, FALL TO YANKEES 7-2

The Baby Bombers took Game Four to even the Battle for the Bridge series versus the Cyclones Monday night at MCU Park.
 
Unfortunately for the Cyclones, the Monday night game started the same way that Game One of Sunday’s double-header ended- with the Cyclones walking in a run for the Yankees. Carlos Valdez got off to a rocky start for the Cyclones. The Bani, Dominican Republic native started the game giving up one hit and three walks, which allowed Staten Island to put a run on the board in the top of the first. The Yankees extended their lead to be 2-0 in the top of the second inning when Collin Slaybaugh scored on a wild pitch dealt by Valdez. The Cyclones left-handed pitcher would soon find his groove and retired six of the next eight batters he faced.
 
In the bottom of the second, Brooklyn made a dent in Staten Island’s lead against the Yankees lefty starter, Jordan Cote. With the bases loaded, Jhoan Ureña hit a ground ball to Yankee shortstop Jose Javier, who overthrew first base and allowed Tomas Nido to score, cutting the deficit down to one run. In the bottom of the third, the Cyclones picked up where they left off, scoring another run to tie the game at 2. Cyclone’s left fielder Joe Tuschak started the bottom half of the inning with a base hit to right field. Anthony Chavez walked and Tucker Tharp ran out a bunt placed down the third base line to load the bases for shortstop Amed Rosario. Rosario hit a sacrifice fly, allowing Tuschak to score.
 
In the 5th inning, the Cyclones brought in right-handed pitcher Gaither Bumgardner to make his Cyclones debut. Bumgardner, who was scheduled to piggyback Valdez in Monday night’s game, had good command on the mound, but lacked strong support from the defense behind him. With runners on first and second with two outs, the righthander got Ty McFarland to hit a liner to right field, however Michael Bernal misplayed the ball, allowing a pair of Yankees to score and give Staten Island the lead at 4-2.  The Baby Bombers were able to tack on a couple more runs in the eighth inning to push their advantage to 6-2, again thanks to a pair of Cyclones errors.
 
The Cyclones brought in right-handed reliever Edioglis Villasmil to close out the rest of the game. Villasmil gave up a run, on only one hit in the ninth inning, a double from Ty McFarland. The reliever allowed McFarland to cross the plate, after throwing a wild pitch and commiting a balk to push another run across the plate and make the final score 7-2 in favor of the Yankees.
 
The Cyclones will host the Hudson Valley Renegades Tuesday night at 7 PM. There will be post-game fireworks and EVERYONE will have a chance to run the bases following the game. Tickets are still available and can be purchased by calling the ticket office at 718-507- TIXX, visiting the MCU Ballpark box office, or right here at BrooklynCyclones.com.
