COMEBACK 'CLONES RALLY TO WIN IN WALK OFF FASHION

COMEBACK 'CLONES RALLY TO WIN IN WALK OFF FASHION

Down by a run going into the bottom of the ninth, the Cyclones bats rallied to walk off in dramatic fashion, as Amed Rosario got the game winning hit to defeat Auburn 4-3.

Corey Oswalt took the bump for Brooklyn, making his seventh start of the season and trying to pick up his third win in a row.

The game did not start out quite as Oswalt hoped, a double into the gap in right off the bat of leadoff man Cutter Dykstra and one out single by Raudy Read would give Auburn an early 1-0 lead.

Brooklyn would get on the board and tie the game at one after getting a chance to bat in the bottom half of the inning. With one out in the inning, a pitch hit Amed Rosario and he would steal second the next at-bat. One batter later, Jhoan Ureña drove him in with an opposite field single.

After working out of a jam in the top of the third, Oswalt found himself in another dangerous situation. With runners on first and second and no outs, Oswalt was able to calm down and punch out the next two batters. However, he could not get the final batter, after falling behind in the count 2-1, he gave up his second single to Dykstra, which would plate Dale Carey.

After throwing 82 pitches through 5.0 innings, Oswalt’s night came to a close and the Cyclones put the ball in the hands of Brad Wieck, the lanky lefty from Canyon, TX. Wieck would pitch a scoreless sixth, seventh, and two-thirds of the eighth. He would exit with the Cyclones still trailing 2-1, leaving runners on second and third for Luis Rengel.

Upon entering, Rengel would intentionally walk the pinch hitter Matthew Page. The walk would load the bases and after a first pitch ball, Rengel would induce a ground ball over to Anthony Chavez and get out of the inning.

Despite not having a hit since the third inning, the Cyclones were able to get some offense going in the bottom of the eight. Brooklyn newcomer John Mora was able to work a leadoff walk and would advance to second on a hit and run turned ground out during Amed Rosario’s at-bat. With Michael Conforto at the plate, Mora would move over to third on a passed ball by catcher Raudy Read.

Conforto would walk, bringing up Ureña, who would come through once more, hitting a ball deep to center for a line out, but gave it enough that Mora would be able to tag up and score. Tyler Moore would bat next and hit what looked to be a single, but due to some bad luck the ball caught Conforto who was running to second, serving as the third out and ending the inning.

And right as the Coney Island Fireworks began to go off, Bryan Mejia who entered the game in the seventh inning as a pinch runner for Dykstra, hit a rocket into the right field bleachers to give his team a 1-0 lead. Following the home run, Rengel would take a seat, and Tom Gamboa would call on Kelly Secrest. Secrest would not allow another run, despite two more batters reaching base.

Just as they did earlier, the Cyclones tried to get a run across with small ball. Tucker Tharp, who entered as a pinch hitter and defensive substitute for Michael Bernal in the sixth, led off the inning with a walk. During the next at-bat, Tharp was in motion and was able to advance to second despite Adrian Abreu grounding out.

Will Fulmer would work a one-out walk, Tomas Nido then entered as a pinch hitter for Anthony Chavez. With John Mora at the plate and the bases loaded, Dimas Ponce entered the game to pinch run for Nido. Mora popped the ball up to shallow right, but Tharp ran anyways. The ball beat Tharp to home, but the ball popped out of Raudy Read’s glove scoring Tharp and tying the game.

Two pitches later Amed Rosario hit a soft line drive that would drop into shallow left, driving in Will Fulmer for the game-winning run. The win would be the Cyclones’ first walk-off victory of the year and keep them within a game of the Connecticut Tigers in the wild card race.

Before going out on the road next week, the Cyclones have another three-game series coming up at MCU Park against the Connecticut Tigers who are in a close race with Brooklyn for the wild card spot. With great promotions like Star Wars Night, College Night, and Selfie Sunday, Coney Island is the place to be this weekend. Tickets start at just $10, and can be purchased by visiting the MCU Park Box Office, calling 718-507-TIXX, or right here at BrooklynCyclones.com
