CYCLONES COMEBACK TO WIN 7-5, JABS THROWS KNOCKOUT PUNCH


Despite a rocky start the Cyclones hold the Yankees scoreless following the third and rally to a 7-5 victory. Jay Jabs threw the knockout punch in the bottom eighth with a 2-RBI shot to left field.

Cyclones starting pitcher,Justin Dunn, started the night off strong striking out two of his first three batters to open up the game, but the right-hander ran into trouble when he let five consecutive batters reach base in the bottom of the second prompting an early 4-0 Staten Island lead. The Yankees added to their hot start when Drew Bridges knocked a solo home run to centerfield. Dunn finished the night giving up five runs on five hits and striking out four in his 3.0 innings on the mound.

Brooklyn began to chip away at the Yankees lead when Desmond Lindsay singled and Colby Woodmansee reached on a walk before being moved closer to home after a wild pitch. Blake Tiberi then capitalized as he knocked a hard grounder to right field putting the cyclones on the board, 5-1.

The Cyclones persevered as they continued to close in on Staten Island’s lead in the top of the fifth. Jay Jabs opened the inning with a liner to right and after a wild pitch moved over to second. Hengelbert Rojas walked and Gene Cone smacked a RBI-single through the left field gap. Rojas trotted home on a wild pitch while Cone took to third before adding a run of his own on fielding error by third baseman Drew Bridges to trim the Yankees lead to 5-4.

After trading zeroes in the sixth and seventh, Brooklyn opened the game back up in the top of the eighth. Lindsay reached on a fielding error and Woodmansee cracked a line drive to left field before Darryl Knight filled the bases with a walk. Lindsay reached home safely on a wild pitch before the Cyclones took a 7-5 after a 2-RBI knockout punch thrown by Jay Jabs.

Raul Jacobson relieved Dunn and recorded the win after he tossed 4.0 scoreless innings giving up just five hits and striking out four. Adam Atkins followed throwing an inning and striking out one before tossing the ball to Joesph Zanghi in the ninth. Zanghi finished the game with three strikeouts and a save despite some trouble before closing the game.

The Cyclones look to take the series tomorrow night at Richmond County Bank BallPark when RHP Erik Manoah (5-2) takes the hill for the final game of the three-game bout.
