SLIMY CYCLONES SLIP PAST YANKEES, 3-2


SLIMY CYCLONES SLIP PAST YANKEES, 3-2

For the third day in a row, the Cyclones and Staten Island Yankees squared off once again, this time at MCU Park. Entering Wednesday night’s game, the Cyclones held a 3.5 game lead over the Yankees, and a 2.0 game wild card lead over the Connecticut Tigers for the lone wild card spot in the 2014 New York Penn-League playoffs.

The Cyclones would hold onto their wild card lead, earning an 11-inning walk-off win after going back and forth early on with the Yankees. Following the early see-saw affair, Amed Rosario was hit by a pitch to give the Cyclones another victory, getting them one step closer to the playoffs, winning 3-2.

The evening began with the Yankees doing something they had not done recently, jumping ahead early in the game, getting a run across in the top of the first inning. To leadoff, centerfielder Devyn Bolasky hit a single and would advance to second on a throwing error by Cyclones shortstop Alfredo Reyes. A wild pitch would advance Bolasky over to third and then a one-out sacrifice fly would drive him in.

The Cyclones would tie the game at one with an explosive start to the inning. Michael Conforto led off with a double to left center, and then was driven in on a single by Jhoan Ureña. Despite getting a few more batters on base, the Cyclones were unable to plate anymore runners.

Brooklyn would take their first lead of the game in the bottom of the sixth. Tucker Tharp reached on a single to lead off the inning, and would move to third on a fielding error by Yankees third baseman Ty McFarland. Alfredo Reyes would ground into a double play, but with no outs, the double play would be good enough to plate Tharp.

Staten Island would get another run across and tie the game in the top of the seventh with some help from Brooklyn pitcher Scarlyn Reyes. Yankees first baseman Connor Spencer reached on a single, and then three wild pitches would bring him all the way around to score.

The game would remain tied until the bottom of the eleventh when the Cyclones would load the bases on a single from Tharp, a bunt single from Anthony Chavez, and an intentional walk by Adrian Abreu. The game would end on a walk-off hit by pitch by Amed Rosario.

The Cyclones will return home for one more game against the Yankees on Sunday, August 31st. It will be fan appreciation day at the ballpark and tickets just start at $10.
