July 29 -- Brooklyn, NY --
The Brooklyn Cyclones (23-17) shut out the Connecticut Tigers (17-22) by a score of 2-0 on Friday night to take the rubber game of the three-game set. Brian Harrison’s two-out, two-RBI double in the eighth inning provided all of the scoring as Cyclones hurlers limited the Tigers to five hits this evening, and only one run over the last two games.

The only thing that could slow down Marco Camarena on Friday night was the rain that delayed the start of the game by an hour. Once the 20-year-old took the mound he was nearly unhittable for the Cyclones, striking out seven over his 6.0 shutout innings of work. But Connecticut’s starter Brennan Smith was just as impressive, matching Camarena pitch for pitch over his 6.0 innings as neither team mounted a threat until the seventh inning.

After Steven Winnick pitched a scoreless top of the frame, it was the Cyclones who looked like they would break the scoreless tie in their turn at bat. Brian Harrison and Travis Taijeron started the rally with back-to-back singles and after Chase Greene walked with two outs, the Cyclones had the bases loaded for Danny Muno. Muno hit a sharp ground ball up the middle that looked like it would score a pair of Cyclones, but Connecticut’s second baseman Colin Kaline – the grandson of Hall of Famer Al Kaline – made a diving grab and was able to retire Greene at second base to end the threat.

In the eighth inning, with the Coney Island Fireworks lighting up the sky, it was Brian Harrison’s double that finally lit up the scoreboard. With two outs in the bottom of the frame, Richard Lucas walked and Cole Frenzel singled to put a pair of runners on and set the stage for Harrison’s heroics. Brian connected on a 0-1 offering from Melvin Mercedes (3-1), driving a line drive into the right centerfield gap, allowing the pair of Cyclones to score the first runs of the game.

Eric Beaulac (1-0), who pitched a scoreless eighth, retired the Tigers in order in the ninth to close out the win for the Cyclones to move the team to six games above .500 for the first time this season.

The Cyclones will begin a four-game road series against the Vermont Lake Monsters tomorrow, Saturday, July 30, at 6:05 p.m. The four-game set includes a doubleheader on Sunday starting at 1:05 p.m. The probable starters for Saturday’s game are RHP Eduardo Aldama (2-1, 3.16) and RHP Tyler Vail. The Cyclones return home to MCU Park on Tuesday, August 2 for a three-game series against the Williamsport Crosscutters. The Inflatamaniacs will make their MCU Park debut and following the game, everyone gets to run the bases.
