CYCLONES SKID HITS SEVEN WITH EXTRA INNING LOSS

CYCLONES SKID HITS SEVEN WITH EXTRA INNING LOSS

The drought continues as the Cyclones lose a late night heartbreaker, 8-6 in the season’s longest game.

The Cyclones took the early lead by tacking a run on the board in the bottom of the first. Joe Tuschak led off the game with a single, which was followed by a double up the middle from Amed Rosario. With runners on second and third and nobody out, Johan Ureña struck out to bring up Michael Katz. Katz hit a hard grounder up the middle, which allowed Tuschak to score and Rosario to advance to third on the fielder’s choice. The inning ended on a groundout from Tomas Nido, but the Cyclones picked up the 1-0 lead. 

The next inning, the Cyclones were able to keep momentum going and extend their lead to 5-0. The string of small ball hits started with a dribbler down the third base line from Michael Bernal. Jamestown’s catcher, Kevin Krause was unable to field the ball and throw it to first in time to get Bernal, who would pick up the infield hit. On a 2-1 count to Jeff Diehl, Bernal stole second and was driven home when Diehl hit a bloop single to center field. Diehl was able to advance to second base on a passed ball thrown by Jamestown’s starting pitcher, Marek Minarik. Luis Arrizurieta reached base on a walk to bring up Joe Tuschak at the top of Brooklyn’s lineup with one out. Tushack hit a hard grounder to Erik Lunde at second base, who bobbled it and was only able to get the out at first; Diehl and Arrizurieta advanced to second and third on the play. Rosario picked up his second double of the night, as both runners scored, making it 4-0 Cyclones. The Jammers ended Minarik’s night and brought in Andres Mendoza to face the Cyclone’s hottest hitter, Johan Ureña. Ureña picked up an RBI, as he drove in a speedy Rosario on a single to right field to make it 5-0. However, Jamestown was able to end the inning by tagging Ureña out when he tried to take second base on the play.

Jamestown responded in the top of the next inning, scoring four runs to close in the Cyclones lead 5-4. To start things off for the Jammers in the top of the third, Carl Anderson doubled, followed by a single from Jordan Luplow. Michael Suchy grounded into a fielder’s choice to get the force out at second, but Anderson scored to give Jamestown their first run. Kevin Krause made a dent with a two run rocket hit over the left field wall. Starter, Casey Meisner, started the game stronger than his past few starts, but was unable to regain command of the ball and proceeded to give up a walk to Chase Simpson and a single to Kevin Ross. Meisner’s night ended as Mike Hepple was bought in from the bullpen with one out. Hepple started out a little shaky, throwing a wild pitch to allow Simpson to score from third, making it a one run ball game. Hepple walks Tyler Filliben, but is able to stop the bleeding by striking out Lunde and Elvis Escobar.

After an impressive fourth inning from the Cyclones defense, the Jammers scored two more runs and took the lead for the first time. Brad Wieck came in to pitch the fifth inning, walking Kraus and giving up a double to Chase Simpson doubles down the left field line. Krause scored on the hit to tie the game at five. The inning should have ended when Lunde hit a ball to center field, but Joe Tuschak dropped the ball and Jamestown was able to take advantage of the error, as Simpson scored the go ahead run and make it 6-5. Wick had another chance to get out of the inning with an attempt to pick off Lunde, who was caught between first and second. However, Rosario dropped the ball and Lunde was safe on the error. Wick struck out Escobar to end the inning.

The Cyclones bounced back in the bottom half of the inning to tie the game at six. Joe Tuschak reached base on an infield hit and was moved to third off of a single from Rosario. Tuschak would go on to score when Ureña hit into a fielder’s choice, but that was all the damage the Cyclones could retaliate with.

The Cyclones and Jammers were tied up from the sixth inning until the top of the tenth when Jamestown became the team to put the winning runs on the board and Shane Bay picked up the loss. Tyler Filliben started the top of the tenth with a bomb that hit off the left field wall and allowed him to reach second base easily. The next batter up, Lunde lined a single through the left side, scoring Filliben and pushing the Jammers ahead 7-6. With another hit to left, Carl Anderson drove Lunde home to give an extra cushion to Jamestown’s lead, 8-6. The Cyclones weren’t able to work their way back this time.

The final game of the series versus Jamestown will be on Friday at 7 PM. It will be FDNY Night at MCU Park, as the Cyclones honor all of those who serve in the New York Community. Tickets for Friday’s game and the rest of the home stand are still available, you can call 718-507-TIXX, visit the MCU Park Box Office or online at BrooklynCyclones.com.
