ALL BARK NO BITE! CYCLONES SHUTOUT SCRAPPERS, 4-0

ALL BARK NO BITE!  CYCLONES SHUTOUT SCRAPPERS, 4-0


August 7, 2014 – Niles, OH – Three Brooklyn pitchers combined for 12 strikeouts and scattered just two hits as the Cyclones defeated the Mahoning Valley Scrappers 4-0 on Thursday evening. The shutout was Brooklyn’s seventh of the season, tied for the league lead. The Brooklyn win, coupled with a Connecticut Tigers loss, gives Brooklyn sole possession of the New York-Penn League’s Wild Card spot.

RHP Martires Arias made the start for Brooklyn and was impressive in what was his Cyclones debut. The righthander, who dominated the Appalachian League prior to his promotion from Kingsport, picked up right were he left off with the K-Mets. The 6-10 righthander allowed just two hits, while walking three and striking out six, over his 6.0 shutout innings. Dating back to July 17th, the 23-year-old hurler has not allowed a run over his last 22.0 innings of work.

After matching zeroes through the first three innings, the Cyclones drew first blood in the top of the fourth inning. OF Michael Conforto started the rally with a booming double to left field, his six sixth in 19 games this season, and quickly came around to score when 3b Jhoan Ureña ripped a single to centerfield to score Conforto and give Brooklyn a 1-0 edge.

With runs at a premium on Thursday night, that is how the score would stay until the top of the eighth when Brooklyn would tack on some insurance runs. OF John Mora started the frame with a bloop singled and SS Amed Rosario followed suit with a sharply hit single just out of the reach of the Scrappers third baseman to put a pair of runners aboard for Michael Conforto. The Mets first round selection took advantage of the scoring opportunity with an RBI single into right field that plated Mora and moved Rosario to third. With runners on the corners, Ureña tacked on another run with a sacrifice fly that allowed Rosario to score making it 3-0 in favor of the Cyclones. After Tyler Moore walked to put a pair of runners on for Tomas Nido, the Cyclones backstop ripped a single to centerfield to score Conforto and extend Brooklyn’s lead to 4-0.

That is how the game would end as LHP Brad Wieck and RHP Mike Hepple closed out the victory for Brooklyn with 3.0 near-perfect innings of relief.

The Cyclones will close out their three-game series in Mahoning Valley on Friday night with RHP Corey Oswalt (4-1) on the mound. With a victory on Friday, the Cyclones would win their fifth consecutive series. Brooklyn will then head to Batavia for a three-game series with the Muckdogs before returning to KeySpan Park on Tuesday evening to open a three-game series against the Lowell Spinners.
