CYCLONES SKID CONTINUES, FALLS TO WV 8-1

MORGANTOWN, WV – July 22, 2015 – Brooklyn starter Matt Blackham recorded just four outs and the Cyclones defense matched a franchise record, for the second time in 10 days, with five errors in an 8-1 loss to West Virginia.

Blackham (2-2) ran into trouble immediately in the bottom of the first. Leadoff hitter Kevin Kramer walked, stole second, and advanced to third when Brandon Brosher’s throw went into center field. With two outs, Ty Moore bounced an infield hit to second that eluded Will Fulmer and gave the Black Bears a 1-0 lead.

Brooklyn answered in the second when DH Jeff Diehl led off the inning with a long home run that cleared the bullpen beyond the left field fence. Diehl’s third homer of the year proved to be the only run the Cyclones would manage against starter Dario Agrazal (4-1) and the West Virginia bullpen.

The Black Bears pulled away with five runs in the bottom of the second. The inning began when Ryan Nagle reached on an error by Fulmer. Blackham then surrendered three consecutive singles and threw a wild pitch to hand West Virginia a three-run lead. Center fielder Logan Hill followed with a hard hit single to drive in two more. Blackham exited one batter later, concluding his shortest outing of the season.

Dawrin Frias got the final two outs in the third but gave up two runs in the bottom of the third. After Christian Kelly delivered a one-out single, Frias hit Mitchell Tolman to put two aboard. One batter later, Frias threw away a pickoff attempt at first allowing Kelly to score and Tolman to advance to third. He later crossed the plate on a wild pitch.

Luis Mateo’s first outing of the year was a lone bright spot for Brooklyn. The right hander threw three scoreless innings, allowing one hit and striking out three. P.J. Conlon also threw a scoreless inning in relief.

Brooklyn committed an error in each of the first five innings and matched the franchise record for errors for the second time in 2015. Tempers ran hot in the visitor’s dugout starting in the second inning when base umpire David Martinez ejected reliever Johnny Magliozzi for arguing a a check swing ruling from the bench. Manuel Hilario got thrown out with two outs in the 9th after arguing Donnie Smith’s called strike three.

The Cyclones now sit in a three-way tie for first place in the McNamara Division with the Staten Island Yankees and Hudson Valley Renegades. Left hander Kevin Canelon will start for Brooklyn tomorrow when the Cyclones attempt to avoid a sweep in their first series ever in Morgantown.
