CYCLONES LOSE TO LOWELL, 7-3


BROOKLYN, NY – July 15, 2016 -- Despite some offensive opportunities Brooklyn failed to rebound from last night’s heartbreaker as they dropped their second straight to the Lowell Spinners, this time by the score of 7-3.

The Spinners made Cyclones starting pitcher, Merandy Gonzalez (2-1), look uncomfortable throughout most of the night. The righthandeder finished the night giving up five runs off eight hits and three walks while striking out three in 6.0 innings of play.

Gonzalez let up consecutive one run innings to open up the game after throwing a wild pitch in the first that sent Steven Reveles home the first run of the night. The second score came after Jerry Downs was hit by a pitch and later came home on an RBI-single by Carlos Tovar that made it 2-0.

The Cyclones offense quickly responded scoring three runs in the bottom of the third. Michael Paez started the frame with a double over the centerfielders head and Nick Sergakis reached on a throwing error by Tovar that was followed by a Jacob Zanon RBI-sacrifice fly. Pete Alonso walked and with two-outs Dan Rizzie stepped up to the plate and blasted a two-RBI double down the left field line, driving in a pair that gave the Cyclones a 3-2 advantage.

The Cyclones lead didn't last long though, Jerry Downs opened up the fourth inning with a line drive single before Tucker Tubbs walked. Tovar knocked a RBI-sacrafice fly that scored the tying run before the Spinners took a 4-2 lead when Isaias Lucena ripped a hard RBI-single off of shortstop Colby Woodmansee. The Spinners were able to further their lead to 5-2 after Chris Madera hit solo home run off of Gonzalez to open up the fifth inning. Dillion Becker took the mound in seventh inning and avoided trouble until the eighth when he loaded the bases on a walk and two singles. It looked as if the Becker was going to squeeze out of the inning with no runs scored after Reveles hit a routine ground ball to second base. But Michael Paez threw wide of first base, allowing two runs to score on the errant throw, and extended the Spinners lead to 7-3.

Brooklyn will look to rebound in the final game of a three-game bout with the Spinners on Saturday evening. First pitch is scheduled for 7:00 PM. Tomorrow, Saturday will be Relay for Life Night at MCU Park as the Cyclones join forces with the American Cancer Society to raise funds in the fight against cancer. The team will be wearing special jerseys that will be raffled off with proceeds to benefit Relay for Life. Also don’t forget to stay after the game and enjoy a special post-game firework show. 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.
