CYCLONES RALLY COMES UP SHORT IN 7-6 LOSS

Tuesday Night, the Cyclones fought to the end, but fell to the Ironbirds in Game 1 of a two game series, 7-6, as Brooklyn and Aberdeen faced off for the fourth and final time this season.

 

The game started slow, but Brooklyn picked things up in the top of the third inning to take a 2-0 lead. A single to right field from Wil Fulmer followed by a bloop double from Adrian Abreu initiated the Cyclones threat. With runners on second and third and one out, Amed Rosario beat out a ground ball hit to shortstop, Justin Viele. Fulmer scored the Cyclones first run and Abreu moved to third base. A sacrifice fly from Johan Ureña drove in Abreu for the second run of the inning.

 

The Ironbirds quickly responded in the bottom half of the inning, as Jamill Moquete launched his third homerun of the season to deep left field, closing in the Cyclones lead to 2-1. Jay Gonzalez picked up a double, Austin Anderson walked, and Alex Murphy hit an RBI single to knock in the tying run off of the Cyclones starter, Brandon Welch.

Alberto Baldonado, who was scheduled to piggyback Welch, came into the game in the bottom of the fourth and pitched an inning and a third. In the bottom of the fifth inning, Austin Anderson lined a triple to right center and scored the Ironbirds go ahead run off of a shallow bloop single from Alex Murphy. Hector Veloz and Riley Palmer kept the hits coming for Aberdeen, as they each picked up a single and extended the Ironbirds lead to 4-2. With one out and runners on the corners, Cameron Griffin came in from the bullpen to relieve Baldonado.

 

The first batter Griffin faced, Justin Viele, bunted the ball back towards the mound, but Griffin hesitated and was unable to get the runner coming home from third. The sloppy defensive inning continued for Brooklyn. Moquete hit a single to right fielder, Michael Conforto, who had trouble picking the ball up. Conforto’s error on the throw home ended up bouncing off the backstop and Aberdeen added two more to their lead, making the score 7-2.

 

The Cyclones closed in on the Ironbird’s lead, as they scored three runs in the bottom of the eighth. Tucker Tharp, Adrian Abreu, Amed Rosario, and Johan Ureña each singled off of the Ironbird’s reliever, Josh Walker. Tharp and Abreu scored a run a piece to make it 7-4. The cleanup hitter, Michael Conforto grounded into a fielders choice, but another run scores as Rosario crossed the plate on the play to make it 7-5.

 

A couple of errors from the Aberdeen defense kept the Cyclones alive in the top of the ninth. Tomas Nido started the strip up with a single and Abreu and Fulmer reached on errors from Veloz and Lartiguez. However, the Cyclones came up just short of tying the game when Rosario struck out to end the game and left two runners on.

 

Brooklyn and Aberdeen play game two tomorrow at 7 PM, before the Cyclones return home to MCU Park for a three game home stand on Thursday. To purchase tickets for any of the remaining home games this season, call 718-507-TIXX, visit the MCU Park box office, or log onto BrooklynCyclones.com.
