HOW SWEEP IT IS! CYCLONES CHOP DOWN 'CUTTERS 5-2 IN SERIES FINALE

The Cyclones and Crosscutters faced off for the series finale in Monday’s matinee game in front of a sold out crowd of 8,709 fans on Camp Day. With Marcos Molina on the mound, the Cyclones kept the weekend’s winning momentum going, winning the game 5-2 and sweeping Williamsport on the series.

The Crosscutters didn’t waste any time, starting the game off with three hits and a run off of the Cyclones dominant pitcher. Drew Stankiewicz led off the top of the first with a double to right center and was able to advance to third, thanks to a sacrifice bunt from Jiandido Tromp. The Crosscutter’s third batter, Aaron Brown grounded out, but Stankiewicz was able to score and give Williamsport a 1-0 lead. Clean up hitter, Matt Shortall picked up an infield single and stole second, allowing him to score the Crosscutter’s second run when Wilmer Oberto knocked in a hit to center field.

The Cyclones tacked on their first run of the game in the bottom if the third inning, thanks to three singles from Tucker Tharp, Adrian Abreu and Amed Rosario. Brooklyn was able to keep the hits coming the next inning, when they posted up two more runs against Williamsport’s right-handed starter, David Whitehead.

Left fielder, Michael Conforto led off the bottom of the fourth with a deep double over the left fielder’s head. A passed ball allowed him to take third and a bloop single to shallow right from Michael Katz drove in Conforto as the tying run. Tyler Moore added to the string of hits with a bloop single to right field, as Katz moved to third base. Michael Bernal hit a ground ball, as the Crosscutters were able to get the force out at second, but the runner on third scores to give Brooklyn a 3-2 lead.

In the bottom of the fifth, the Cyclones came back to bat to cause more damage. Adrian Abreu and Johan Ureña lined singles, before Michael Conforto picked up his first professional RBI on a single to right-center. Michael Katz also drove in a run with a hit down the third base line. Ureña scored and extended the Cyclones lead to 5-2.

After a bit of a rocky start, Molina settled in on the mound and threw six scoreless innings and struck out eight batters. Kelley Secrest came in out of the bullpen to pitch a perfect eighth inning and Shane Bay closed out the game, picking up his sixth save of the season.

The Cyclones return home Thursday for a series against the Vermont Lake Monsters. Thursday’s game will feature an I <3 Brooklyn Jersday Thursday giveaway to the first 3,000 fans. Tickets are still available by calling 718-507-TIXX, visiting the MCU Park Box Office, or on brooklyncyclones.com.
