CYCLONES BLANKED BY STATEN ISLAND, 5-0


BROOKLYN, NY – September 4, 2016 – The Cyclones closed out their 2016 home schedule with a 5-0 loss at the hands of the Staten Island Yankees on Sunday afternoon. Jordan Humphreys (0-1) was the hard luck loser in his Cyclones debut. The righthander scattered seven hits over 6.0 innings allowing one run, earned, while walking one and striking out nine.

The lone run charged to Humphreys came in the top of the second when the Yankees would take a lead they would never relinquish. Jordan retired the first two batters he faced with ease, and when Nathan Mikolos hit a sky-high pop up on the infield it seemed like it would be a 1-2-3 inning for the righthander, but Blake Tiberi lost the ball in the sun, as it landed safely in the infield grass for an infield double. Angel Aguilar then followed with an RBI single to centerfield as Mikolos slid in safely at the plate just ahead of the throw from Desmond Lindsay to make it 1-0.

That’s how it would stay through the middle frames, as Humphreys settled in and the Cyclones squandered a few scoring chances. Brooklyn’s best chance to get on the board came in the bottom of the fourth when they loaded the bases with two outs, but Luis Carpio flied out to the warning track in right field to end the threat and keep Brooklyn off the scoreboard. The Cyclones finished the game 0-for-7 with RISP.

Both teams traded zeroes until the top of the eighth when Timmy Robinson hit his eighth home run of the season, a solo shot, to extend their advantage to 2-0. The Baby Bombers tacked on three runs in the top of the ninth, courtesy of a bases clearing triple from Wilfrin Mateo to make the final score 5-0.

The shutout loss was Brooklyn’s seventh of the season, all of which have come at MCU Park. Over the last two years, Brooklyn has been shutout 15 times, with 14 coming at the not-so-friendly confines of MCU Park.

The Cyclones will close out their 2016 season on Monday evening at Staten Island when they send RHP Justin Dunn (1-1) to the mound. Cyclones ace and New York-Penn League leader in strikeouts Harol Gonzalez (7-2) is expected to piggy-back in relief of Dunn.
