DIMINO DELIVERS! BKLYN WALKS OFF WITH A WIN


BROOKLYN, NY – August 23, 2016 – The Cyclones snapped their four game losing skid thanks to a 2-1 win over the Mahoning Valley Scrappers at MCU Park on Tuesday night. Anthony Dimino was the hero for Brooklyn, as his 11th inning single provided the winning margin.

The Scrappers manufactured a run in the top of the first to quickly jump out to a 1-0 lead. Todd Isaacs led of the game with a bunt single and two pitches later stole second base to move into scoring position. Silento Sayles advanced the runner with a ground out the right side of the infield and Andrew Calica followed with a sac fly to open the scoring.

That would be all of the offense that Brooklyn starter Raul Jacobson would allow. The righthander went on to toss 6.0 shutout frames, allowing just three hits and one run while striking out a career-high eight batters. Jacobson retired the final 12 batters he faced before turning the ball over to Ty William who tossed a scoreless top of the seventh.

After sleepwalking through the first six innings, Brooklyn finally broke through in the bottom of the seventh. Jay Jabs worked a one-out walk to start the threat and when Anthony Dimino walked later in the frame the Cyclones had a runner in scoring position with two outs. Franklin Correa took advantage of the scoring chance with a broken-bat, bloop single that parachuted into shallow left field scoring Jabs to knot the score at 1-1.

That’s how it would stay, as the Scrappers and Cyclones traded zeroes until the bottom of the eleventh when the Cyclones would walk off with a win. After collecting just four hits through the first 10 innings, the Cyclones got back-to-back singles from Jay Jabs and Dan Rizzie that put runners on the corners with one out for Dimino. The 23-year-old, who was making his MCU Park debut, roped the first pitch he saw back up the middle to plate Jabs and give Brooklyn a 2-1 win in extras.

LHP Taylor Henry (2-1) got the win after tossing 2.0 scoreless innings of relief, capping a great night for the Cyclones bullpen.

The Cyclones will look to make it two in a row on Wednesday evening when they send RHP Justin Dunn (1-1, 1.71) to the mound against the Scrappers. It’s a Wednesday so that means all tickets will cost just $10. Seats are still available by calling 718-507-TIXX, logging on to BrooklynCyclones.com or in person at the MCU Park Box Office.
