CYCLONES STUMBLE TO FINISH LINE IN FIVE HOUR MARATHON

CYCLONES STUMBLE TO FINISH LINE IN FIVE HOUR MARATHON

Some of New York City’s bravest were on hand to watch the Cyclones wrap up their series against the Jamestown Jammers as MCU Park hosted FDNY Night. With their special FDNY themed jerseys on, Brooklyn battled all night, rallying against the Jammers several times.

Unfortunately, the final fire in the top of the 15th was too much to handle and the Cyclones fell for the eighth straight game.

It was an eventful top half of the first inning for starter Carlos Valdez. After plunking the leadoff batter, Jordan Luplow was able to lay down a sacrifice bunt that Valdez was unable to track down. Valdez fell trying to retrieve the ball and was issued an error on the play.

On a 1-2 pitch to the next batter, the Jammers executed a double steal to put both base runners in scoring position with no outs. Valdez was able to regain his composure a bit, freezing Taylor Gushue at the plate with a strike to paint the outside corner. Drama ensued on the next play on a sacrifice fly to Michael Bernal. Bernal was able to gun the ball home to create a bang-bang play, Carl Anderson the runner slid into home but looked to have missed the plate. Catcher Adrian Abreu applied the tag but the umpire called Anderson safe despite pleas from several Brooklyn players claiming the batter did not touch the plate.

While the players argued the play, Jamestown’s runner on second advanced to third. After a walk, a softly hit single to shallow right would be enough to drive the runner in. Valdez would get out of the inning after picking up another strikeout, but not before Jamestown was able to take a 2-0 early lead.

Valdez would calm down after the hectic first inning, meanwhile Jamestown starter Tyler Eppler could not be touched the first time through the lineup by Brooklyn batters. In the fourth, the Cyclones were able to breakthrough when leadoff hitter Adrian Abreu ripped a ball that hit off the second tier of the wall in left field for a double.

Amed Rosario followed up the double with a single up the middle to drive Abreu in. During the next at-bat, Jhoan Ureña hit a ball hard that made it’s way over the first baseman’s head. Despite the ball only making it into shallow right field, Rosario was able to go from first to third and Ureña was able to stretch what should have been a single into a double.

Michael Katz came up to bat next and was able to tie the game on a ground out to the shortstop. After a strikeout by Tomas Nido, Joe Tuschak slapped a ball at first baseman Kevin Ross, and was able to get on base with a single. Unfortunately for Ross who bobbled the ball, Ureña would come around to score and Ross would be issued an error. That would be all the Cyclones would get in the fourth, but the solid inning would be good enough to take a 3-2 lead.

Valdez would face some difficulty in the fourth inning, and after loading the bases with just one out, Tom Gamboa was forced to go to the bullpen and bring in piggyback starter Gaither Bumgardner. Against his first batter, Bumgardner would surrender a single that would plate two and give Jamestown a 4-3 lead, and a wild pitch immediately after would advance the runners on the corners, making it a 5-3 Jamestown lead. An infield single from Michael Suchy would put runners on first and second, still with one out, but a strikeout and ground out would strand two runners and get Bumgardner out of the inning.

After giving back the three runs in the top half of the inning, the Cyclones got them right back to regain the lead. After a leadoff single from Jeff Diehl and then a double down the line from Will Fulmer to put two runners in scoring position with no outs for Adrian Abreu. Abreu reached on an infield single to drive in Diehl and Rosario would ground out to plate Fulmer, tying the game up at five. Ureña would ground out to advance Abreu over to third, Katz would walk and during Tomas Nido’s at-bat, a wild pitch would move the runners over, plating Abreu and giving Brooklyn a 6-5 lead going into the sixth inning.

In the bottom of the sixth, the Cyclones had an opportunity to increase their lead, but ended up stranding two runners on base.

The back and forth between Brooklyn and Jamestown continued in the top of the seventh when Carl Anderson reached on a single and came all the way around to score after stealing second, advancing to third on an error and being driven in by Taylor Gushue on a ground out.

In the top of the ninth, the errors by Brooklyn came back to haunt them. With two outs, Carl Anderson reached on a walk. Anderson would steal second, but a poor throw by Adrian Abreu would sail over second base and into the outfield, sending Anderson over to third. Jordan Luplow who was the batter grounded the ball over to second base in what should have been a routine ball for Will Fulmer, but a few bobbles by Fulmer would allow both runners to be called safe, giving Jamestown a 7-6 lead.

On the second pitch he saw in the bottom of the ninth, Will Fulmer made up for his error in the top half with a moon shot over the left field wall to tie the game at 7.

The game would remain scoreless until the top of the 15th inning when Edioglis Villasmil would give up two hits, an intentional walk and another hit to plate two batters and give Jamestown a 9-7 lead. With no one out and runners on second and third, Villasmil intentionally walked another batter to load the bases, and then was pulled, bringing in Juan Urbina.

Urbina would give up another three runs and Brooklyn was unable to get anything going in the bottom half of the inning and would go on to fall in the 15th, 12-7.

The Cyclones play one more series, their first against the Williamsport Crosscutters before heading back out on the road for a two-game set against Aberdeen.
