Brooklyn, NY – August 11, 2013Brooklyn tied its season high in runs scored, beating the State College Spikes 9-2. L.J. Mazzilli led the charge tonight going 4-for-5, with two runs scored and two RBI.

State College took the lead in the top of the third inning in one of the more bizarre plays you will ever see. Steven Ramos laid a bunt down the first base line and Carlos Valdez appeared to make the throw in time to retire Ramos, but the runner was called safe. Alex Sanchez thought Ramos was retired for the first out and instinctively went to throw the ball around the infield but his throw went into left field.  So Ramos went to try for second.  Leftfielder Jonathan Clark fielded the ball quickly but overthrew L.J. Mazzilli who was covering second. The ball headed straight to the Cyclones dugout, so Ramos sprang to his feet and started towards third before noticing that nobody was covering home so he rounded third and headed for the plate. Eddie Rohan finally came up with the ball after it caromed off the front of the dugout and sprinted towards home. But Ramos’ hand just beat his diving attempt at a tag, giving the Spikes a 1-0 lead.

Brooklyn’s bats came to life in the bottom of the second putting up four runs, thanks to three hits and two errors. Rohan led the inning off with a double and was brought home on a double by Anthony Chavez.  With Patrick Biondi up to bat, Spikes hurler Jimmy Reed threw a pitch to the backstop advancing Chavez to third. Biondi would reach on a walk and Gavin Cecchini then came up and grounded into a fielders choice, scoring Chavez and advancing Biondi to second for the first out. Mazzilli then came up and singled to right and right fielder Luis Perez allowed the ball to get behind him, scoring Biondi and allowing Mazzilli to go to second. Sanchez then singled Mazzilli to third bringing up James Roche who reached on a fielding error by shortstop Cesar Valera, extending Brooklyn’s lead to 4-1.

In the bottom of the fourth inning, Brooklyn added a run to increase the lead to 5-1. With one out, Rohan hit his second double of the game and moved to third on a groundout by ChavezBiondi then reached on a bunt, scoring Rohan and giving the Cyclones a four run cushion. Brooklyn added another run in the bottom of the fifth to add to their lead and make it 6-1.

State College scored a run in the top of the seventh inning off of David Wynn to make the score 6-2. Mason Katz led things off with a double before moving to third on a single by Luke Voit, and scoring on a sacrifice fly to left field.

In the bottom of the eighth inning, Brooklyn added three runs to make it a 9-2 ballgame. With two outs, Cecchini doubled down the right field line, before scoring on a single by Mazzilli to right. Sanchez then came up and hit a booming home run over the roller coaster on top of the scoreboard in left field.

The Cyclones will have the next two days off due to the Al-Star break before returning to MCU Park on Wednesday, August 14 at 7:00 PM to take on the Hudson Valley Renegades. For tickets call 718-507-TIXX, visit the ticket office or CLICK HERE.
