BROOKLYN BEATS THE 'BIRDS, 2-0


ABERDEEN, MD – September 3, 2016 – The Cyclones took the rubber game of their series with the Aberdeen IronBirds on Saturday evening, winning by the score of 2-0. Colby Woodmansee’s two-RBI single provided all the offense Brooklyn would need as they collected their seventh shutout win of the season.

With starting pitchers Raul Jacobson and Alexander Wells both on their games, offense was at a premium all night long. The two hurlers traded zeroes through five innings, but in the top of the sixth with Wells out of the game, the Brooklyn bats were able to break through. With reliever Max Knutson on the hill, Gene Cone and Luis Carpio had back-to-back, two-out singles before Michael Paez walked to load the bases for Colby Woodmansee. The Cyclones shortstop took advantage of the scoring chance by lacing an opposite field single to right, plating a pair to give Brooklyn a 2-0 advantage.

That would be all the offense for the night as Raul Jacobson (3-2) tossed 6.0 shutout frames, scattering four hits and a pair of walks while striking out one. He turned the game over to Gary Cornish, who struck out five of the six batters he faced in the seventh and eighth inning, but ran into trouble in the ninth.

In the bottom of the ninth, Preston Palmiero and Seamus Curran had a pair of one out singles, putting the tying runs aboard. Cornish rebounded, striking out Alejandro Juvier for out number two, but a passed ball by Dan Rizzie allowed both runners to move into scoring position. Irving Ortega then worked a walk to load the bases for Jaylen Ferguson. But Cornish was able to bear down and strike out the IronBirds left fielder to close out the win. The righthander collected his third save of the season while striking out seven over his 3.0 shutout frames.

With the win, Brooklyn improves to 37-37 with just two games remaining in the 2016 season. The Cyclones will have their home finale on Sunday afternoon at 4:00 PM when they take on the rival Staten Island Yankees. RHP Jordan Humphrys will make his Cyclones debut when he makes the start at MCU Park. Gates will open at 2:30 PM and fans are encouraged to arrive early with a chance to meet the 2016 Cyclones at the front gates. Tickets are still available and start at just $10.
