ONE UP, ONE DOWN, CYCLONES AND SPINNERS SPLIT DOUBLEHEADER

Game 1 (Lowell def. Brooklyn 3-2)

BOX SCORE

PLAY-BY-PLAY

Brooklyn starter Scarlyn Reyes was quickly working through the first inning, getting the first two batters to ground out, but hit a bump in the road as the Spinners put together a two-out two-run rally. The Spinners’ third batter hit a line drive into left, which Michael Conforto lost track of in the sun. The ball would drop in for a hit, Conforto was charged with an error, as Betts advanced to second.

Things went from bad to worse during the next at-bat; with Francisco Tellez at the plate, Reyes was able to get another groundout, but the ball would bounce off of first baseman Pedro Perez’s glove, getting in for a single and plating a speedy Betts. A double following the single would score another run to give Lowell an early lead.

The defensive miscues continued for Brooklyn in the third. Joseph Monge, who reached base scored on an errant throw by catcher Adrian Abreu. Monge who was on second after successfully stealing the base, went to swipe third, got in cleanly, but a careless throw by Abreu made it’s way into the outfield, allowing Monge to score.

In the bottom of the second, the Cyclones got their first hit of the game on a sharply hit ball to right by Jhoan Ureña, who extended his hit streak to eight games.

Three innings later, the Cyclones would get their second hit of the game and threaten to score for the first time all night, after a leadoff single by Tomas Nido and walk by Michael Bernal. After two outs, Perez was able to work a walk and load the bases for John Mora, but a fly out would get Lowell out of the inning, and leave the Cyclones trailing 3-0.

Brooklyn would threaten once more in the sixth, after a leadoff walk by Amed Rosario and hit by pitch to Conforto. The runners would advance during Ureña’s at-bat on a wild pitch by Lowell pitcher Carlos Pinales. Ureña would roll the ball over towards first for a groundout, but it would be enough to drive Rosario in, mover Conforto over to third, and get Brooklyn on the board. After a strikeout by Nido, Bernal was able to deliver and hit the ball sharply up the middle for a single, scoring Conforto and making it a one run Lowell lead.

The Cyclones would be unable to strike again in the ninth and would fall 3-2.

 

Game 2 (Brooklyn def. Lowell 3-2)

BOX SCORE

PLAY-BY-PLAY

After a scoreless top half of the first, the Cyclones jumped on the board early to take a 1-0 lead. With one out, Amed Rosario slapped a double down the right field line to start a string of three straight hits that would result in Rosario scoring. Michael Conforto singled to move Rosario over to third, and Jhoan Ureña extended his hit streak to nine games with a single over the third baseman’s head, scoring Rosario.

The Spinners would bounce back in the top of the third, getting 1 run across to tie the game. Shortstop Raymel Flores got things going with a bunt single, and advanced to second on a throwing error by Tomas Nido, who sailed a ball over first base. Flores would come around to score after a long at-bat that resulted in a double by Danny Mars. Mars would be stranded on third after consecutive groundouts induced by Martires Arias to end the inning.

Brooklyn would get the lead right back in the bottom of the third on an RBI-single by Tomas Nido. The inning began with John Mora reaching on a bunt and then advancing to second on a throwing error by the catcher, Alixon Suarez on a pickoff attempt. A bad sacrifice bunt by Rosario would keep Mora at second, and then a pitch would hit Conforto, putting runners on first and second. After an infield fly by Ureña, Nido dropped a soft line drive into center, which would be good enough to drive in a speedy Mora and give the Cyclones a 2-1 lead.

Just as they did in game one, errors hurt the Cyclones in game two, and as a result of an error by Ureña, the Spinners were able to tie the game at two in the top of the sixth. After a leadoff single by Danny Mars and unsuccessful bunt attempt by Mike Meyers, Jordan Betts grounded a ball over to Ureña. Ureña waited on the ball to see if it would go foul, and at the last second tried to bare hand the ball, but failed the grab it, letting it go past him into the outfield. Mars would advance to third on the error. A single from Aneudis Peralta would plate Mars and tie the game.

Following the single, Arias would exit the game and Kelly Secrest would take over on the mound. Mauricio Dubon entered the game as a pinch hitter and hit a single to load the bases, but Secrest would be able to escape a dangerous situation with some help from his defense. Secrest was able to get Nick Moore to ground into a double play that would end the inning, leaving the two teams knotted at two.

Brooklyn was able to come through in the bottom of the eighth, walking off for the second time this season after getting some help from the Lowell defense. Amed Rosario led off the inning with a sharp line drive to right, Michael Conforto followed it up with a fly ball to left that was misjudged by left fielder Nick Moore. The ball would drop in, sending Rosario to third, and Conforto to second. With two runners in scoring position and only needing one run, Jhoan Ureña came through in the clutch, hitting the ball to right, scoring Rosario, and defeating Lowell 3-2.
