CYCLONES ALL SMILES AFTER 9-4 WIN

CYCLONES ALL SMILES AFTER 9-4 WIN

The Cyclones jumped on Auburn early, scoring seven runs in the second inning, and never looked back.  Michael Conforto went 3-for-3 with a pair of runs scored and two RBI to pace the Brooklyn bats as they downed the Doublebays 9-4 on Wednesday evening.

With both teams coming off of the road and their energy not at the highest level, it was a bit of a slow start. After a scoreless first inning that took just over 30 minutes to complete and a scoreless top half of the second, the Cyclones shook off the cobwebs and got to work, exploding for five runs in the inning.

Tyler Moore led the inning off with a walk, and three pitches later would advance to second on a wild 0-2 pitch to Will Fulmer. Immediately after, Auburn starter James Bourque could not regain his control, as he put too much on an inside fastball that would subsequently hit Fulmer.

Joe Tuschak came up and slapped the ball in the opposite direction all the way to the wall for a double that would bring Moore in from second and send Fulmer to third. Following the double, Anthony Chavez was able to beat out a ground ball to short and pick up an RBI, as Fulmer would come home to score.

An error during Adrian Abreu’s at-bat would drive in Tuschak and put runners on first and second with no outs. Three batters later, after a fielder’s choice by Amed Rosario to put runners on the corners and fly out by Jhoan Ureña the Cyclones were able to get another run on a perfect double steal to plate Chavez and send Rosario to second.

A single up the middle by Michael Conforto would score Rosario, giving Brooklyn a 5-0 lead. Michael Bernal would follow it up with another single by poking a ground ball between the first and second basemen. A balk during Moore’s second at-bat of the inning would plate another run and then a double to left by Moore would give Brooklyn their seventh and final run of the inning.

After the great inning by the Cyclones, the Doubledays were able to get on the board and cut into the Brooklyn lead. A single and consecutive walks would load the bases for Auburn with just one out. Auburn first baseman Bryan Langlios hit a single to give his team their first run of the game. During the next at-bat, Jose Marmolejos was able to drop a ball in shallow left to plate another, luckily for Brooklyn, the runner on second forgot to advance and they were able to get the force out at third for the second out of the inning. An error by Adrian Abreu would move the runners up an extra 90-feet during Raudy Reed’s at-bat, but Scarlyn Reyes was able to strike him out and get out of the inning without too much damage.

After struggling with each of the batters he faced in the top of the fourth, surrendering two walks and only managing to get two outs, Scarlyn Reyes was taken out of the game, giving way to a fellow righty, Mike Hepple. Hepple was able to quickly get Osvaldo Abreu to ground out and end the inning.

In the bottom half of the fourth, the Cyclones were given a chance to add to an already substantial 7-2 lead. With runners on the corners and two outs, Will Fulmer lined the ball into right to drive in Conforto who reached base after being hit by a pitch. A walk to Tuschak would load the bases for Anthony Chavez who would strikeout swinging for the second time.

The Doubledays were able to cut the deficit down to four runs with a productive fifth inning, which got started on a leadoff infield single by Cutter Dykstra. After two strikeouts, Hepple would give up two runs on a deep double to left and sharp single in the same direction. After a walk, Hepple was taken out of the game and replaced by lefty Paul Paez. An error by Will Fulmer would load the bases but a strong four-pitch effort by Paez would get Matthew Page to strikeout looking, and strand three runners.

Brooklyn tacked on another run with two outs in the bottom of the seventh inning on a Michael Conforto single, driving in Adrian Abreu from second base.

After solid relief outings from Luis Rengel and Juan Urbina, Cameron Griffin entered for the Cyclones in the ninth. Griffin was able to pitch a 1-2-3 ninth and give Brooklyn their fifth win in a row, keeping them atop the New York-Penn League wild card race and two games over .500.
