CYCLONES BATS PROVIDE FIREWORKS IN 5-1 WIN AT BATAVIA


BATAVIA, NY – July 4, 2016 – The Cyclones bats provided some early fireworks on Independence Day as Brooklyn defeated the Batavia Muckdogs by the score of 5-1. C Ali Sanchez went 2-for-4 with a pair of RBI to pace the Brooklyn bats and starter Merandy Gonzalez tossed 7.0 dominant innings, allowing just one unearned run and striking out nine.

The Cyclones got things started early on Monday night when Gene Coneled off the game with a single to left field and advanced to second on a wild pitch before Nick Sergakis walked to put a pair of runners aboard. Colby Woodmansee then grounded out, leading to a force out at second base and putting runners on the corners. Woodmansee then swiped second to put a pair of runners in scoring position for Ali Sanchez. The Cyclones backstop took advantage of the scoring chance with a two-RBI single to give Brooklyn the early 2-0 advantage.

The Cyclones built on their lead in the second with an RBI single from Dale Burdick and in the third with Colby Woodmansee’s first professional home run that made it 4-0.

With Mirandy Gonzalez locked in on the mound, that lead would be more than enough for the Cyclones. The righthander did not allow a hit through the first 4.0 innings, but finally allowed a hit and an unearned run in the bottom of the fifth that made the score 4-1.

But the Cyclones responded quickly. In the top of the sixth Jacob Zanon tripled to start the frame and later came around to score on an RBI single from Gene Cone to make the score 5-1 in favor of the Cyclones.

That’s how it would stay, as Gonzalez turned the ball over to New York Mets first round selection Justin Dunn who made his professional debut with 2.0 scoreless frames. The fireballing righthander allowed a pair of singles in the eighth, but worked out of trouble, before retiring the Muckdogs in order in the ninth – including a pair of strikeouts.

The Cyclones will look to extend their winning streak to three games on Tuesday evening when they take on Batavia in the middle game of a three-game series. RHP Nabil Crismatt will make his first start of the season for Brooklyn. The team returns to Coney Island on Friday, after a league wide off day on Thursday, to open a three-game set with the Hudson Valley Renegades.
