Game Recaps

BROOKLYN HAS NO BITE VS. 'DOGS, FALL 1-0

BROOKLYN, NY (August 2, 2015) -- It was a quiet Sunday afternoon at MCU Park as the Cyclones dropped the rubber game to the Batavia Muckdogs by a 1-0 score. Brooklyn struggled to get any type of offense going and finished the game with just two hits and four total base runners. After winning the first game of the series, the Cyclones head out on the road having lost two in a row on their home field.

RHP Chris Flexen (0-2, 5.11) spent much of his start getting himself into and out of trouble. Flexen allowed four hits and five walks but gutted out 4.2 innings and kept Brooklyn in the ballgame while the offense sputtered but ends up the hard-luck loser of sorts. He left the game in the fifth with the bases loaded after a triple from Batavia center fielder Stone Garrett and two walks. RHPJohnny Magliozzi came on in relief to complete the inning but not before the Muckdogs broke through for the game’s first run.

A past ball charged to catcher Brandon Brosher allowed the run to come in from third, with an unearned run being charged to Flexen and Batavia taking a 1-0 lead.

Magliozzi returned for the sixth and got himself out of major trouble as defense played a role in Batavia wasting a golden opportunity to extend the lead. After a double and a bunt single, runners stood at the corners when Magliozzi picked Gio Alfonzo off first base. During the next at-bat, with the runner breaking from third on contact,Will Fullmer fielded a ground ball and fired home to cut down the run at the plate—keeping the game 1-0. After escaping the threat, Magliozzi tossed a scoreless seventh and ended his day throwing 2.1 scoreless innings, allowing three hits and striking out three.

Batavia starter Jordan Holloway was sharp from the beginning, facing the minimum amount of batters through his six innings. One run was all he needed as he induced eleven ground ball outs and allowed just one hit. Emmanuel Zabala singled to begin the fourth but was picked off by Holloway soon after. Following a walk in the fifth, Holloway got himself a 6-4-3 double play to escape a threat and hold the number of batters faced to the minimum. Holloway finished his afternoon with just that one hit and one walk on his line while striking out four over six scoreless frames.

There was very little offense to speak of for the Cyclones, who managed just one opportunity with runners in scoring position and could not overcome the Batavia pitching staff. Ryley MacEachern relieved Holloway, throwing 1.2 innings of scoreless relief while allowing just one hit. Closer Steve Farnworth came on to record the final four outs of the game for his eighth save of the season. It’s the third time this season the Cyclones have been shut out.

A bright spot for Brooklyn was RHP Craig Missigman, who came on in relief and pitched two perfect innings of relief, throwing just 19 pitches and striking out two. In total, 4.1 innings of scoreless relief kept Brooklyn in the game for the entire afternoon.

Brooklyn heads out on the road for an eight game road trip beginning on Monday, August 3rd. LHP Kevin Canelon (3-2, 3.82) takes the hill for Brooklyn at LeLacheur Park in Lowell, Massachusetts as the Cyclones take on the Spinners. After stops in Lowell, Vermont and Staten Island, the Cyclones return home on August 11th for the third game of a three game series with the Staten Island Yankees.
