CYCLONES SUPER SIXTH PROPELS BKLYN TO VICTORY

Despite a delay that lasted a little over an hour on Monday night, the rain did not stop the Cyclones from beating the Spinners 8-5 in Game Two of the series in Lowell and evening their season record to be back at .500.

Alberto Baldonado took the mound for the Cyclones, making his third start of the season and earning his first win. However, the Spinners caused Baldonado some trouble early, scoring their first run in the bottom of the first inning off of a walk to Lowell’s leadoff hitter Danny Mars, two stolen bases, and a RBI single from Sam Travis.

After going four for four in Sunday’s game, Michael Bernal’s hot bat responded in the top of the second, hitting a lead off homerun to tie the game at one.

Bernal also made his presence know on the defensive side, making his seventh outfield assist on the season in the bottom of the third. The Spinners were able to knock in their second run of the game anyways, thanks to a double from Joseph Monge that scored Danny Mars.

In the top of the sixth, Rob Smorol came in to relieve Lowell’s starter, Jake Drehoff; but Smorol was unable to maintain Drehoff’s strong start. The Cyclones batted around the order to score six runs on six hits and an error from the Spinners second baseman, Deiner Lopez. Amed Rosario, who extended his current hit streak to be 11 games with a single in the first inning, started the sixth by driving a double to right field. Michael Conforto reached base with a walk, which was followed by a handful of hits from the middle of the Cyclones order. Will Fulmer, Tomas Nido, Anthony Chavez, and Adrian Abreu all pick up RBI to break open the game and give Brooklyn a 7-2 lead.

The next inning, the Cyclones tacked on another run off the Spinners’ bullpen. Conforto singled and Bernal reached on another error from Lopez at second to put runners on second and third. Will Fulmer walked to load the bases for Joe Tuschak, who entered the game to pinch-hit for Tomas Nido. Tuschak, who missed 10 days due to a hamstring injury, got the clear to play in Monday’s game and was hit by a pitch his first at bat back. Conforto scored, but that’s all the damage the Cyclones could manage, as Tucker Tharp grounded into an inning ending double play.

Baldonado’s night ends when Josh Prevost comes in from the bullpen in the bottom of the sixth. Prevost pitched a hitless sixth, but the Spinners were able to cut the Cyclones lead in the eighth, making it an 8-4 ball game. Joseph Monge hit a single and came around to score on a triple by Sam Travis. With Aneudis Peralta at bat, Jhoan Ureña made an error at third base that allowed Travis to score the Spinners fourth run.

Lowell was able to knock in one more run off of Prevost on just two hits from Mauricio Dubon and Danny Mars. Edioglis Villasmil replaced Prevost on the mound with two outs in the eighth and Shane Bay came in to close the game in the bottom of the ninth. Bay picked up his eighth save of the season and remains in second place in the New York- Penn league in Saves earned this season.

The Cyclones and Spinners will play their final game during an 11 o’clock matinee on Tuesday. Brooklyn is looking to sweep Lowell before returning home for a six game home stand on Wednesday.
