CYCLONES FALL SHORT IN ABERDEEN, 5-2

CYCLONES FALL SHORT IN ABERDEEN, 5-2

After having their three-game win streak snapped the night before with a 7-6 loss, the Cyclones could not get the bats going on Wednesday night and fell to the Aberdeen IronBirds 5-2.

Despite falling short, the late rally started by the Cyclones the night before, briefly continued into Wednesday night as the Cyclones were able to jump on Patrick Connaughton early. Catcher and leadoff hitter Adrian Abreu reached base on a walk and was able to advance to third on a single by Amed Rosario.

Jhoan Ureña mimicked his best friend Rosario with a line drive single into left and plate Abreu. After Michael Conforto was frozen by a curveball from Connaughton, Michael Katz and Tyler Moore would both fly out to end the inning, stranding two runners.

After starting the game on a positive note by scoring the run in the top half of the first, the Cyclones erased much of their earlier progress. An error by Casey Meisner on a bunt and error by Amed Rosario at short would tie the game up at one.

The next batter, Austin Anderson would hit a moon shot to right center that just missed getting over the wall, but was enough for a ground rule double. A single from Alex Murphy would plate Justin Viele to give Aberdeen the lead. Meisner would strike out Hector Veloz for the first out of the game. However, a bunt single by Riley Palmer would drive another runner in, and that would be all Aberdeen would get across in the inning.

Following the bottom half of the first, the tarp was pulled onto the field and the game entered a rain delay for 2 hours and 16 minutes.

Following the delay, the Cyclones batted, and after a one-out single by Will Fulmer, Tucker Tharp grounded into a double play to end the inning. With the delay being so long, Casey Meisner’s day came to a short end, and Mike Hepple took the mound for Brooklyn.

In the top of the third, Rosario reached base on a triple and immediately after, Jhoan Ureña pulled a ground ball over towards second base for an out.  Luckily for Brooklyn, it would be enough to drive in Rosario and cut the Aberdeen lead down to one run.

The IronBirds would tack on another run in the bottom of the fourth on a two out triple by Oswill Lartiguez to score Jamill Moquete, who reached on an error by Rosario earlier in the inning. 

Another run would come across for Aberdeen in the bottom of the seventh on a ground out by Justin Viele after a leadoff triple by Oswill Lartiguez.

Brooklyn was unable to get anything else going during the rest of the game.

The Cyclones return home for a three-game set against the Vermont LakeMonsters.  Tickets just start at $10 and they can be purchased by calling 718-507-TIXX, by visiting the MCU Park box office, or right here on BrooklynCylones.com.
