CYCLONES LOSE IN A COMEDY OF ERRORS, 9-3

BROOKLYN, NY -- July 12, 2015 -- All good things must come to an end and tonight, the Cyclones saw their seven-game home winning streak snapped as Brooklyn fell to Aberdeen by a score of 9-3. Right-hander Tyler Badamo takes the loss after putting in 4.2 innings of work during which he allowed seven runs, six earned. After being named the NYPL Pitcher of the Week during the period of June 29-July 6, the Mount Sinai native saw his initial struggles progressively snowball as Aberdeen offense lit up the scoreboard.

Brooklyn’s Boys of Summer started out the game strong. After Aberdeen’s southpaw Travis Seabrooke walked Vinny Siena, Michael Bernal broke out of a three-game rut wherein he went 0-13, hitting a double that to left field that sent the Cyclones’ second baseman to third. A sacrifice fly ball to left field by David Thompson brought Siena sliding home, and with two outs, Brooklyn’s power-hitting catcher Brandon Brosher doubled as Bernal scored his first run at MCU Park since June 26th, giving his team a 2-0 lead.

The IronBirds began their counter almost immediately. It started with Steve Laurino, who hit a solo home run to left field to get Aberdeen on the board. Badamo was able to keep his composure, however, striking out the next two batters and held off Aberdeen for the remainder of the second inning.

The third inning was the start of an even tougher set of frames for the Cyclones defense. With a runner on second, Aberdeen’s Cedric Mullins began the offensive rally with a two-run home run. Then, following a throwing error by Badamo on a pickoff attempt, Aberdeen notched another run on a ground out, taking a 4-2 lead.

Brooklyn’s defensive struggles continued in the fifth, with a lead off walk to start the inning. It was downhill from there. Aberdeen batters hit two singles and a double off of Badamo, resulting in another three-run inning for the IronBirds, as they heightened their lead to 7-2. Brooklyn reliever Nicco Blank then came in from the bullpen to finish out the inning.

Blank remained in the game and kept the damage in the sixth down to a lone run. A walk and a double put runners on first and second as Aberdeen furthered their lead after a throwing error on single to short stop Alfredo Reyes brought yet another IronBird slugger home.

Blank would surrender one more in the eighth before Ruben Reyes came in to finish out the game. Cyclones offense loaded the bases in the eighth for the hopes of a comeback but was held to a single run scored by the first baseman Pedro Perez.

The Cyclones look to take the three-game series against the IronBirds with their final match up Monday morning at 11:30 am. Making his fifth start of the season for Brooklyn is right-hander Gaby Almonte (2-1). In addition to enjoying the Cyclones’ first day game, everyone is invited to run the bases post game. Tickets start at just $10, and are still available by calling 718-507-TIXX, visiting the MCU Park Box Office, or right here at BrooklynCyclones.com.
