CYCLONES LUCK RUNS OUT WITH LOSS ON IRISH NIGHT

The Cyclones saw their five-game winning streak come to a close on Thursday evening as they were defeated handily by the Auburn Doubledays 14-3.

The Doubledays made their first dent on the scoreboard in the top of the second inning, off of just two hits. One of Brooklyn’s most consistent starters, Octavio Acosta, had an uncharacteristically shaky night on the mound, walking back to back batters to get things started for Auburn. With two runners on, Osvaldo Abreu hit a double off of the left field wall. Dale Carey was able to score the Doubledays first run from third base, but left fielder, Michael Conforto played the ball off the wall and lined it to Jhoan Ureña to nail Jeff Gardner out at third.

The next batter, Clay Williamson, was hit by a pitch, which was followed by a single from Bryan Mejia. One run scored on the hit and both runner are able to advance to second and third, thanks to an overthrown ball home from Michael Bernal in right. Leadoff hitter, Cutter Dykstra hit a routine pop up to shallow right, but the ball bounced off Bernal’s glove and allowed both runners to score on the error to give Auburn a 4-0 lead.

The Cyclones bats were able to bounce back and close in on the Doubledays lead to make it 4-2 in the bottom half of the inning. Three singles through the right side from Michael Bernal, Will Fulmer and Tomas Nido allowed the Cyclones to plate their first run of the night. Tucker Tharp grounded out to second base, but was able to knock in a run, as Fulmer scored from third base.

Octavio Acosta continued to struggle, so the Cyclones called upon Brandon Welch to relieve him in the fourth inning, with two men on and nobody out. However, Welch was unable to find command of the ball, as Auburn broke open the lead and scored four more runs. Dykstra drew a walk to load the bases for Jose Marmolejos. The runner on third was able to score, thanks to a passed ball, before Marmolejos drove in the other two with a double to right field. Marmolejos came around to score on a fielder’s choice hit by Austin Davidson.

Welch returned to the mound for the fifth inning, but the floodgates opened and Auburn scored six more runs on four hits, including a pair of two-run homeruns to make it a 14-2 ballgame. The Doubledays shortstop, Jose Marmolejos, launched his first homerun of the season over the left field wall. Four batters later, Jeff Gardner rocketed a two-run shot over the right field wall. Paul Paez, Juan Urbina, and Eddie Villasmil kept the Doubledays scoreless for the rest of the game.

The Cyclones added one more run to the board when Amed Rosario hit a triple and Jhoan Ureña drove him home with a double in the fifth. Even though they were only able to pick up three runs on 11 hits, the Brooklyn bats recorded a handful of extra base hits, including a triple from Rosario, a double from Jhoan Ureña, a double from Tyler Moore to extend his hit streak to six games, and two doubles from Tucker Tharp.

The Cyclones and Doubledays will wrap up the three game home series, Friday at 7 PM. There will be post-game fireworks and the first 2,500 fans to enter the stadium will receive a Gil Hodges Bobblehead giveaway.
