CYCLONES RALLY FOR 4-3 WIN ON SUNDAY AFTERNOON

 




BROOKLYN,NY – July 10, 2016 -- It was a day of triple plays, Brooklyn bombs and showing the Renegades how its Dunn as the Cyclones rallied for a 4-3 victory against Hudson Valley on Sunday afternoon. Nick Sergakis hit his first professional home run to give Brooklyn the lead and Justin Dunn (1-0) had an eventful Brooklyn debut as the Cyclones turned a triple play behind him in the top of the eighth inning.

The Cyclones wasted no time lighting up the scoreboard on Sunday afternoon, as Colby Woodmansee connected on a 3-2 offering in the bottom of the first, for his second home run of the season, giving Brooklyn an early 1-0 advantage.

Brooklyn starter Merandy Gonzalez ran into trouble in the top of the second, and quickly surrendered the Cyclones lead. Back-to-back doubles from Nathaniel Lowe and Jose Rojas led off the frame and knotted the score at 1-1. After an RBI single from Landon Cray and a sac fly from Bill Pujols, the Renegades had taken a 3-1 lead.

Brooklyn managed to cut into the deficit in the bottom of the third without the benefit of a hit. Dan Rizzie was hit by a pitch to start the frame, Gene Cone worked a walk, and Nick Sergakis was plunked to load the bases with nobody out. Woodmansee took advantage of the scoring chance with a sacrifice fly to center field that made it 3-2.

They come back continued in the bottom of the fifth when the Cyclones would draw even. Gene Cone walked to start the frame advanced to second on a ground out and third on a fly out before Pete Alonso smashed a line drive down the third base line that was too hot to handle, allowing Cone to score and knot the game at 3-3.

Gonzalez allowed six hits in 6.0 innings pitched for Brooklyn, walking two and striking out four before handing it over to RHP Justin Dunn to make his MCU Park debut. The 1st round selection tossed a scoreless 7th, including a strikeout on a 97 MPH heater to set the stage for Sergakis’s heroics in the bottom of the frame. The Brooklyn second baseman connected on a 2-1 offering from Deivy Mendez, sending over the left-centerfield wall for his first professional home run, giving Brooklyn a 4-3 advantage.

With Dunn still on the mound, the Cyclones made history in the top of the eighth turning a triple play off a bunt from Jim Haley, keeping the Cyclones in front and allowing LHP Taylor Henry to collect his third save of the year with a scoreless ninth inning.

The Cyclones will head on the road to Maryland, taking on the Aberdeen Ironbirds tomorrow July 11th, where Nabil Crismatt will start, the first pitch is scheduled for 7:05 p.m. They will return to MCU on Thursday July 14th to welcome the Lowell Spinners for a three game series. The first 2,500 fans will receive Brooklyn Bridge jerseys as part of our first “Jersey Thursday” of the season. 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.
