CYCLONES EDGE LAKE MONSTERS, 2-1

CYCLONES EDGE LAKE MONSTERS, 2-1

The Cyclones are on a roll, winning their fourth straight game, the second against Vermont this weekend.  After a strong start by Alberto Baldonado, followed by some clutch hitting, the Cyclones were able to get just enough runs and squeak past the Lake Monsters.

Brooklyn jumped ahead in the top of the third inning thanks to some clutch hitting by shortstop Amed Rosario. With John Mora on first after reaching base on a two-out single, Rosario hit a ball deep to center that would score Mora, but the inning would end as Rosario tried to extend the double into a triple and was consequently thrown out at third.

The Cyclones would tack on another run in the fourth inning with some small ball. Michael Conforto reached base after being hit by a pitch; two batters, and two outs later, Conforto would steal second to get in scoring position. Moments later, Tyler Moore doubled to right, driving in Conforto and giving the Cyclones a 2-0 lead.

After pitching a scoreless bottom of the fourth and fifth, Brooklyn starter, Alberto Baldonado would exit the game, giving way to another lefty, Carlos Valdez. Baldonado, who struggled earlier this season, threw 5.0 innings of shutout baseball, building on his great previous start where he only gave up one earned run on seven hits through 5.0 innings.

Midway through the bottom of the eight, Valdez was replaced with Gaither Bumgardner. Bumgardner began to pitch with Mac Kuhn on first and two outs. Kuhn reached on walk, before Valdez was taken out of the game. A passed ball by Adrian Abreu would move Kuhn over to second, and then a single by Trent Gilbert would score Kuhn and cut the Brooklyn lead in half. The run scored, would be the first Vermont run to score against Brooklyn since July 26th, ending a scoreless streak of 20.2 innings.

In the bottom of the ninth, closer and 2014 New York-Penn League all-star Shane Bay entered to close out the game. Bay would give up a hit in the ninth, but not allow a run to score and the Cyclones would go on to win 2-1.

Brooklyn will have a few off days following their series against Vermont for the 2014 New York-Penn League, which is being hosted at MCU Park. The Cyclones return home on Thursday, August 21st for the final Jersday Thursday of they year as they take on the Staten Island Yankees.
