CYCLONES RALLY TO WIN SUNDAY'S DOG FIGHT

BOX SCORE

PLAY-BY-PLAY

August 10th - Batavia, NY - A late game three-run rally and a solid performance from Brooklyn’s pitching staff pushed the Cyclones ahead of the Muckdogs in Sunday’s matinee, 5-2. Sunday’s win evened the series in Batavia and will keep the Cyclones on top of the NYPL Wild Card Race. 

The Muckdogs started to bark at Alberto Baldonado when the tail of Batavia’s lineup led off the bottom of the third inning with a double and two singles. However, the Cyclones southpaw was able to wiggle out of the jam by getting a pair of Batavia batters to pop out and tossed a strikeout to John Norwood.

However, sloppy defense from the Cyclones an inning later allowed the Muckdogs to plate two unearned runs on three errors and a wild pitch. Aaron Blanton reached base on an error from Brooklyn’s first baseman Pedro Perez. Blanton was able to make his way around to third base, after Tomas Nido made a throwing error attempting to catch the runner stealing second. An error from Amed Rosario at shortstop put Kevin Grove on the base paths, which was followed by a wild pitch from Baldonado that allowed Blanton to score from third base. The Cyclones left-handed starter then gave up a single to Christopher Hoo that drove in the Muckdogs second run to give them a 2-0 lead.

The Cyclones closed in on Batavia’s lead in the top of the fifth, tacking on a run to make it a 2-1 ballgame. Designated Hitter, Jeff Diehl, picked up his second hit of the game to start things off. Brooklyn’s latest newcomer, Pedro Perez reached on an error to put runners on first and third. Tyler Moore picked up the RBI, as he drove in Diehl from third base with a sacrifice fly.

Brooklyn came from behind in the seventh inning to tie the game at two. Pedro Perez led off the innings with a single to left field, which was followed by the Cyclones first walk of the game from Tyler Moore. Tucker Tharp, who was at the top of Brooklyn’s batting order on Sunday for the first time since July 16th, laid down a sacrifice bunt back to pitcher, Jacob Smigelski, to advance the runners to second and third base. Amed Rosario grounded out to the shortstop Javier Lopez, but Perez scored from third to even the score.

After scoring just a couple scattered runs so far this series, the Cyclones bats came alive to make a dent in the scoreboard in the top of the ninth. Batavia’s relief pitcher, James Buckelew dealt back-to-back walks to Pedro Perez and Tyler Moore to get things started for the Cyclones. Tucker Tharp picked up his second sacrifice bunt of the game to advance the runners to second and third with one out. Amed Rosario was able to knock in both runners on a line drive down the third base line. Michael Conforto drew a walk and Jhoan Ureña singled to load the bases for Adrian Abreu. Abreu hit a sacrifice fly to plate a run and extend Brooklyn’s lead to 5-2.

Josh Prevost entered the game in the sixth to replace Alberto Baldonado. Baldonado pitched five innings and struck out a season high of seven batters. Prevost was able to keep the Muckdogs quiet through the eighth inning, tossing three scoreless innings and allowing three hits. Cyclones closer, Shane Bay earned his 12th save in twelve attempts to tie the New York- Penn League’s current leader.

The Cyclones and Muckdogs will wrap up the series Monday night, as Casey Meisner (2-3) takes the mound for Brooklyn. The Cyclones will return home to MCU Park on Tuesday to host the Lowell Spinners for a three game series.
