Ross Kivett placed a sacrifice bunt down the line to advance the runners to second and third. With Michael Gerber at bat, Molina threw a wild pitch, which allowed the Tigers to put a run on the board. Molina was able to strike out Gerber and Joey Pankake to get out of the inning.

Brooklyn responded in the bottom of the first, scoring three runs off of Connecticut’s struggling starter, Josh Heddinger. Lead-off batter, John Mora, picked up his first Cyclones hit, which was followed by a single to left field from Amed Rosario. Michael Conforto drew a walk on four straight pitches, to load the bases for Jhoan Ureña. Heddinger walked Ureña and knocked in the Cyclones first run to tie the game at one. With the bases still loaded, Tyler Moore hit a sacrifice fly to left field, driving in the Cyclones second run. A wild pitch to Tomas Nido allowed runners to advance to second and third. Nido hit a sacrifice fly to center field and Conforto scored from third base to make it a 3-1.

The Cyclones tacked on another run in the bottom of the third. Amed Rosario lined a triple off of the center field wall and came home to score, thanks to a sacrifice fly from Michael Conforto.

In the top of the fourth, the Tigers threatened to put another run on the board. With runners on first and second, Franklin Navarro singled to left field. However, as Joey Pankake raced for home, left fielder Michael Conforto gunned him down at the plate and picked up his fourth outfield assist of the season.

Adrian Abreu led off the bottm half of the fourth with a single and was moved to second when Tucker Tharp pushed a sacrifice bunt towards the mound. Dimas Ponce laced the ball into the left center gap and picked up his first triple of the season. John Mora was able to put the ball in the air and pick up an RBI on a sacrifice fly. With Ponce scoring, the Cyclones extended their lead to be 6-1.

The next inning, Brooklyn added another run to their lead, thanks to a long shot from Michael Conforto. Conforto laser beamed his first professional homerun, as they ball sailed over the right field wall.

Another inning meant another run for the Cyclones in the bottom of the sixth. Adrian Abreu leads off with an infield single. Tucker Tharp followed with a grounder to shortstop Joey Pankake, who makes an error and allows Abreu and Tharp remain on the bases.
