CYCLONES FALL LATE IN STATEN ISLAND, 2-1

CYCLONES FALL LATE IN STATEN ISLAND, 2-1

After three innings of play, the Cyclones were locked in a 1-1 tie that would stay in place until the bottom of the tenth when the Yankees’ Chris Breen would hit a two-out solo home run to walk-off, 2-1. Despite the loss, the Cyclones remain in first by two games after Connecticut lost earlier in the evening.

The Cyclones took the lead in the top of the third, stringing together a few two-out hits to get a run across. Tucker Tharp led off the inning with a single to right, but would quickly end up back in the dugout, being called out at second on a fielder’s choice off the bat of Alfredo Reyes.

Reyes however, would come around to score and give the Cyclones the lead later in the inning. Following the fielder’s choice, John Mora would strike out looking on a 1-2 pitch that just nicked the outside corner of the plate, but Reyes was able to swipe second and get in scoring position.

Adrian Abreu would hit an infield single to put runners on the corner, and then Michael Conforto was able to line a ball into right for an rbi single.

Minutes later, the Yankees would tie it up in the bottom half of the inning, after some shoddy defense by the Cyclones. Brooklyn starter Alberto Baldonado who escaped a bases loaded situation in the bottom of the second, found himself in a tough spot once again, with Jose Javier on second and Connor Spencer at first. Javier reached on a bloop single, while Spencer reached and Javier and advanced to second on an error by Tyler Moore.

With Ty McFarland at the plate, Baldonado threw a wild pitch behind the lefty batter, and when Abreu could not track down the ball, Javier came around to score all the way from second, and Spencer went to third. Baldonado was able to get out of the inning without any more damage, getting a pop up and two fielder’s choices.

It seemed as if the Cyclones were going to take a late lead with the bases loaded for the second time in the game in the top of the ninth. With Adrian Abreu at the plate and the bases full of Cyclones, Abreu hit a chopper up the middle, which Sam Agnew-Wieland grabbed and threw home. Luis Torrens would relay the throw to first and get Abreu at first for the double play and retire the Cyclones.

With no one out and one strike away from getting out of the inning, Brad Wieck threw a ball that caught too much of the plate with Chris Breen at the plate. Breen would send a moon shot just to the right of the batter’s eye over the center field to walk-off. This would be the second time the Yankees would walk-off against the Cyclones this season.

The Cyclones return home on Wednesday, August 27th for a game against the Yankees and will be celebrating 90s Are All That Night presented by Nickelodeon.
