THE STARS ALIGN IN A 1-1 TIE AT THE NYPL ASG

 

THE STARS ALIGN IN A 1-1 TIE

August 19- Brooklyn, NY- It was a packed house at MCU Park for the 10th annual New York-Penn League All-Star Game, with 7,230 fans on hand in Coney Island. Tuesday night’s crowd was the second largest, next to the crowd from the 2005 Inaugural NYPL All-Star Game and the last time Brooklyn hosted.

As a result of great pitching, there was a limited amount of offense on display and with each team exchanging a run, the game ended in a tie.

Tuesday night started off with a hometown favorite on the mound in the Brooklyn Cyclones’ Marcos Molina. Molina was able to work through the top of the first with ease, getting the first two batters to ground out. Then, after giving up a single to Mahoning Valley’s Nick Tanielu, he was able to strikeout Hudson Valley’s Hunter Lockwood and get out of the inning.

Mahoning Valley’s Sean Brady took over for the South in the top of the third. Brady struck out Hudson Valley’s Bralin Jackson to kick off the inning, and then gave up a single to Batavia’s Mason Davis. With Davis on first, Vermont’s Yairo Munoz rolled a slow roller over to Austin Anderson (Aberdeen) at third, Anderson tried to get Munoz at third but a short hop would allow Munoz to reach base. A good recovery by the South’s first baseman, Connor Spencer (Staten Island) would give him plenty of time to get Munoz out at third as he tried to get 90 feet closer to home. Another ground ball would get Brady out of the inning and keep the score knotted at zero.

To kickoff the top of the fourth, Tanielu reached base with another single, this one coming against Brooklyn’s Corey Oswalt. Oswalt was able to get an out on a sharp line drive by Hunter Lockwood, but would give up another single to Jose Marmolejos-Diaz (Auburn). A ground ball for a fielder’s choice would put runners on the corner, but a clutch strikeout would get Oswalt out of a jam.

In the bottom of the fourth, back-to-back great plays were made in the infield as Brooklyn’s Amed Rosario hit the ball into what looked like a gap between first and second until Mason Davis was able to make a sprawling grab and gun out Rosario at first. During the next-at, Austin Anderson grounded a ball up the middle, that Munoz was able to track down, and the make a spinning throw to get the speedy Anderson by a step.

The North was able to get their bats going to start off the top of the fifth, and just as it seemed they were about to come up flat, they were able to capitalize on a prime opportunity against Williamsport’s David Whitehead. Bralin Jackson led off with a single and Mason Davis followed it up with one of his own, on a soft line drive to left. After consecutive strikeouts, Nick Tanielu was able to hit a soft liner into shallow right for his third hit of the game, driving in Jackson and giving the North a 1-0 lead.

Midway through the bottom half of the inning, with Luis Torrens (Staten Island) on first, the South team was able to get their first hit of the game on a line drive hit to right off the bat of Derek Campbell. That would be the only hit the South could get across in the inning.

In the bottom of the seventh, the South was able to utilize some small ball and tie the game at 1. Torrens reached base with a one-out single, and then advanced to third on a fielding error by Mauricio Dubon (Lowell), off of a ground ball by Isaias Tejada. Campbell entered the box next and hit a sacrifice fly to drive in Torrens.

After a perfect two-thirds of an inning from Sam Street (Jamestown), Brooklyn southpaw Shane Bay entered and induced a fly ball to take the game into the bottom of the ninth, still tied at one.

Despite having a runner on third with two outs in the bottom of the ninth, the South could not get the run across and the game would end in a 1-1 tie.

After a 3-for-3 performance with an RBI, Nick Tanielu of the North team was named the most valuable player and received the milb.com top star award from NYPL president Ben Hayes.
