'CLONES COMEBACK FALLS SHORT, LOSE 4-3


BROOKLYN, NY – August 29, 2016 – The Cyclones fell behind early and a late inning rally came up short as they fell to the Auburn Doubledays by the score of 4-3 at MCU Park. For Brooklyn, it was their 28th one-run game of the season. Michael Paez went 2-for-4 with a run scored, home run and RBI to pace the Brooklyn bats.

Brooklyn looked like they would take an early lead in the bottom of the first inning when Michael Paez and Desmond Lindsay had back-to-back singles that put runners on the corners with one out. Colby Woodmansee would strike out though, and after a Blake Tiberi worked a walk to load the bases, Luis Carpioflied out to right field to end the threat.

While Brooklyn threatened early, Auburn would draw first blood in the top of the second. Tres Barrera started the rally with a one out single and quickly came around to score when Paul Panaccione drilled a line drive that split the gap in left-centerfield for an RBI double as Auburn jumped in front 1-0.

The lead would swell in the top of the third when Raul Jacobson plunked Daniel Johnson with a pitch and Dalton Dulin followed with a triple into the same spot as Panaccione an inning prior to make it 2-0. Nick Banks followed with a sac fly to push the Doubledays advantage to 3-0.

In the bottom of the frame, the Cyclones sliced into the deficit with one swing of the bat as Paez connected on an 0-1 offering from Auburn starter Dane Dunning and sent if over the left field wall for his second home run of the season. The solo shot from the Mets fourth round selection sliced the deficit to 3-1 after three.

The two teams traded zeroes in the fourth before Auburn tacked on another run in the top of the fifth, courtesy of a Dalton Dulin sacrifice fly to make it 4-1 in favor of the Doubledays.

The Cyclones continued their come back in the bottom of the seventh when Anthony Dimino had a one-out bunt single and came around to score on an RBI double from Gene Cone that made it 4-2. That is where the rally would end though, as Paez flied out and Desmond Lindsay struck out to end the threat.

Brooklyn would slice into the lead even further in the bottom of the eighth when Blake Tiberi drilled a 410 foot shot into The Backyard in right-centerfield, his second home run of the season, making it 4-3 after eight.

It looked promising in the ninth, when Anthony Dimino started the frame with a single, his second of the night, but was quickly caught stealing second to eliminate the traffic on the bases. Gene Cone had a 10-pitch marathon at-bat that ultimately resulted in a fly out to left field, and after Paez walked, Desmond Lindsay grounded out to end the game.

RHP Raul Jacobson (2-2) made the start for Brooklyn and was tagged with the loss after allowing four runs, earned, on five hits with one strikeout over his 6.0 innings on the mound. He gave way to Gary Cornish who tossed 3.0 nearly flawless frames, allowing just one hit while striking out six.

The Cyclones will look to rebound on Tuesday evening when they send RHP Justin Dunn (1-1) to the mound. It’s a Tuesday, so that means post-game fireworks presented by Coca Cola.
