CYCLONES BATS ERUPT IN 9-2 WIN


BROOKLYN, NY – August 31, 2016 – The Brooklyn Cyclones bats awoke from their late season slumber en route to a 9-2 victory over the Auburn Doubledays at MCU Park on Wednesday night. RHP Harol Gonzalez (7-2) got the win for Brooklyn, scattering two runs on nine hits over 7.0 innings on the mound.

Gonzalez came into tonight’s game having not allowed a run at home since July 9th, but Auburn pounced on the righthander early, taking a 2-0 lead in the first. Daniel Johnson sent the first pitch of the game down the right field line for a leadoff triple and two pitches later Clayton Brandt had an RBI double and the Doubledays were in front 1-0 just three pitches into the game. After a groundout advanced the runner, Oliver Ortiz followed with an RBI single to extend their advantage to 2-0.

The Cyclones would slice into the deficit in the bottom of the second thanks to a two-out rally. Anthony Dimino had a double down the left field line with Ali Sanchez aboard to put a pair of runners in scoring position for Franklin Correa. The Cyclones second baseman took advantage of the scoring chance with an infield single that plated Dimino, but Ali Sanchez was thrown out trying to score to end the frame with Brooklyn by a single run, 2-1.

In the top of the third the Cyclones took control of the game, taking a lead they would not relinquish. Arnaldo Berrios walked to start the threat and moved to second on a balk before Gene Cone had a bunt single that put runners on the corners with nobody out. After Luis Carpio lined out for out number one, Desmond Lindsay ripped an RBI single into right field, plating Berrios and knotting the score at 2-2. Colby Woodmansee followed with a slow roller down the third base line that was misplayed by Auburn’s Andres Martinez, allowing Cone to score on the error to give Brooklyn a 3-2 edge.

After a scoreless fourth inning, the Cyclones blew the game open in the bottom of the fifth. Carpio and Lindsay had a pair of singles to start the frame and Woodmansee followed with an RBI single to make it 4-2. On the play, both runners would advance an extra base, courtesy of a fielding error by center fielder Daniel Johnson. With a pair of ducks on the pond, Ali Sanchez stroked a single to right field, plating a pair and pushing the score to 6-2. Dimino and Correa followed with a pair of singles to load the bases before Berrios lifted a sac fly to center field that made it 7-2.

The Cyclones capped the scoring in the eighth when Carpio scored on a wild pitch and Blake Tiberi added an RBI double to make the final score 9-2.

LHP Gabriel Feliz and RHPTy Williams each tossed a scoreless inning in relief of Harol Gonzalez to close out the win for Brooklyn.

The Cyclones will head to Aberdeen to open a three-game set with the IronBirds on Thursday before returning to MCU Park for their 2016 home finale on Sunday against the Staten Island Yankees. It will be Fan Appreciation Day at the ballpark and fans are encouraged to arrive early as Cyclones players will be lined up at the front gates to sign autographs for fans when gates open at 4:30 PM. Tickets start at just $10 and are available by calling 718-507-TIXX, logging on to BrooklynCyclones.com or in person at the MCU Park Box Office.
