SILENT NIGHT FOR BROOKLYN BATS, FALL 4-1


STATEN ISLAND, NY – August 19, 2016 – The Cyclones dropped the rubber match of a three-game series with the Staten Island Yankees, falling on Friday night by the score of 4-1. The Cyclones managed just four hits, with Blake Tiberi’s first professional home run accounting for the lone run.

Brooklyn would jump out to an early lead with one swing of the bat when Tiberi connected on a 3-2 offering from Staten Island starter Simon De La Rosa and sent it deep over the centerfield wall to give the Cyclones an early 1-0 advantage. For Tiberi, the Mets 3rd round selection in the 2016 Draft out of Louisville, it was his first professional home run. The Cyclones tried to add to their lead, loading the bases later in the frame but Michael Paez struck out swinging to end the threat.

Cyclones starter Erik Manoah (5-3) quickly gave the lead back however, as Angel Aguilar started the bottom of the third with a double, advanced on a wild pitch and scored on an RBI groundout from Nick Solak that knotted the score at 1-1.

It would stay that way until the bottom of the fifth when the Baby Bombers would take control of the game. A single from Ben Ruta, a fielding error from Tiberi and a walk of Drew Bridges loaded the bases for Staten Island with nobody out. Timmy Robinson took advantage the scoring opportunity, drilling the first pitch he saw from Manoah down the left field line for a two-RBI double, giving the Yankees a 3-1 advantage. The Brooklyn righthander rebounded nicely though, striking out the next three batters he faced to limit the damage and keep the deficit at just two runs.

Manoah’s night came to an end after 5.0 innings, allowing the three runs, two earned, on seven hits while walking a pair and striking out eight. Gary Cornish came on to pitch the sixth inning and surrendered a solo home run to Angel Aguilar that extended the Staten Island lead to 4-1, which is how the game would end.

The Cyclones will head to Lowell, MA on Saturday to open a three-game series with the Spinners. Brooklyn will send RHP Harol Gonzalez (5-1) to the mound looking to continue his franchise record streak of consecutive double-digit strikeout games. The ‘Clones will return to Coney Island on Tuesday for a three-game set with the Mahoning Valley Scrappers on Super Hero Night at the ballpark. The first 2,000 fans in attendance will receive a Lucas “Duda Smash” Bobblehead and Midtown Comics will also be distributing free comic books for fans in attendance. Tickets are still available and can be purchased at 718-507-TIXX, in person at the MCU Park Box Office or at BrooklynCyclones.com.
