BROOKLYN SPIKED IN STATE COLLEGE, 10-4


UNIVERSITY PARK, PA — June 30, 2016 — Cyclones starter Joel Huertas allowed eight runs on a franchise record 12 hits, as the Cyclones fell to the State College Spikes by the score of 10-4 on Thursday night. Ryan McCarvel, the Spikes first baseman hit for the cycle.

Huertas looked uncomfortable as soon as the game started. After forcing Jose Martinez into a ground out the second pitch of the game, the southpaw quickly found himself in trouble, giving up three consecutive singles. With Dylan Tice in scoring position and Vincent Jackson on first, Ryan McCarvel was able to hit a hard RBI single to center field driving Tice home for the first score of the game.

The game stayed that way until the fourth inning when Brooklyn took what was their only lead of the night. Gene Cone started the inning off with a hard ground ball to centerfield followed by a Nick Sergakis walk. Colby Woodmansee stepped up to the plate and drove a ball to left field sending Cone in for the tying score, and moving Sergakis over to third base. Brandon Brosher and Arnaldo Berrios continued their success at State College as they both were able to stroke RBI singles expanding the Cyclones lead 3-1 before the inning came to a close.

However, the Cyclones lead was short lived. The Spikes were able to respond with at least one run in each of the last four innings of play. In the bottom of the fifth inning, the Spikes put up four runs off of five hits. Huertas was in trouble after giving up consecutive singles to open up the inning. But it was not until a triple by McCarvel followed by a double by Bladimil Franco that gave the Spikes 4-3 lead, one that they never relinquish.

The game spiraled for the Cyclones from that point on. In the sixth inning Huertas gave up one more run before being relieved by Nabil Crissmatt. With a pair already in scoring position the Cyclones reliever allowed the pair of inherited runners to score to make it 8-3. The Spikes tacked on singled runs in the seventh and eighth to push their lead to 10-3. Brooklyn rounded out the scoring with an RBI single from Arnaldo Berrios in the top of the ninth to make the final score 10-4.

Brooklyn will look to bounce back as they open up their three-game series with the Connecticut Tigers Friday night at 7:00. Erik Manoah (1-0) will start for the for Brooklyn and will aim for second win of the season. In addition to the game, the first 2,000 fans in attendance will also receive Brooklyn Cyclones Jersey Apron. Tickets, which start at just $10, are still available by calling 718-507-TIXX, visiting BrooklynCyclones.com or in person at the MCU Park Box Office.
