CYCLONES PLAY SCARY GOOD ON HALLOWEEN IN JULY


CYCLONES PLAY SCARY GOOD ON HALLOWEEN IN JULY

After failing to get the bats going on Friday night, the Cyclones hitters showed some pop on Saturday night when they defeated the Vermont Lake Monsters 3-2, and take two out of the three game series.

After stranding a runner in scoring position in the bottom of the first inning, the Cyclones were able to break through and get on the board first, and it was the bottom half of the lineup getting things done.

Tyler Moore hit a leadoff single, and advanced to second after a pitch hit Tucker Tharp. After an infield fly by Dimas Ponce, and walk by Anthony Chavez, Adrian Abreu came up to the plate with the bases loaded. Abreu would ground into a fielder’s choice at third base and a run would not score. However, Will Fulmer would slap a single down the right field line to plate two batters and give Corey Oswalt an early 2-0 lead.

In the top of the third, the Lake Monsters would cut the lead in half. A leadoff double by Brett Vertigan and single by J.P. Sportman would give Vermont their first run of the game. Following the pair of doubles, Oswalt was able to settle down and set the next three batters down in order.

Vermont would give back the run they earned minutes later. Michael Conforto reached base with a one-out single and was driven in on a two-out double by Moore.

Oswalt who had a strong 6.0 inning, six-strikeout performance continued to work his way through the Vermont lineup. In the fifth inning, he ran into a bit more difficulty when he gave up a one out double to J.P. Sportman. During the next at-bat, Sportman was able to steal third and come around to score on a sacrifice fly by Yairo Munoz.

In the top of the seventh, Kelly Secrest entered for Oswalt and found himself in a difficult spot after allowing two runners to get on base with no outs in the inning. Luckily for Secrest his defense was able to flip the script on Vermont with a magnificent play. J.P. Sportman tried to lay down a sacrifice bunt to move the runners over, but Jhoan Ureña was able to quickly grab the ball, gun it to third where Ponce was covering, and Ponce was able to throw a dart over to first to get Sportman. Following the double play, Secrest was able to get another ground ball from the Yairo Munoz to end the inning.

Secrest pitched a scoreless top half of the eight inning and after a scoreless bottom of the eighth, lefty Shane Bay entered the game in an attempt to pick up his sixth save of the season. Bay was able to strikeout two of the three batters he faced, making his sixth save of the season.

The Cyclones go on the road for a three-game set against the Lowell Spinners, but return home for a six-game homestand against the Auburn Doubledays, and the Connecticut Tigers. Tickets start at just $10 and can be purchased by visiting the MCU Park Box Office, call 718-507-TIXX, or visit BrooklynCyclones.com.
