HEEEEEEEEERE'S LLANY! LLANES DOMINANT AS BKLYN WINS


BROOKLYN, NY – August 14, 2016 – The Cyclones took the rubber match of a three-game series from the West Virginia Black Bears by the score of 2-1 on Sunday. Gabriel Llanes (4-5) starred on the mound for the Cyclones, tossing 7.0 strong frames, as Brooklyn finished their home stand 5-1.

It was a pitcher’s duel at MCU Park on Sunday afternoon as Brooklyn starter Gabriel Llanes and Black Bears hurler Stephen Mayer traded zeroes through the early going before West Virginia drew first blood in the top of the fourth. After Llanes retired the first two batters with ease, Arden Pabst drilled a triple into the left centerfield gap to put himself into scoring position. Sandy Santos followed with a groundball to third that Blake Tiberi fielded and fired over to first but the throw pulled Darryl Knight off the base, allowing the Black Bears to take an early 1-0 advantage thanks to the unearned run.

In the bottom of the frame, Brooklyn looked to draw even, when Brandon Brosher worked a one-out walk before Tiberi was hit by a pitch and Ali Sanchez reached on an error to load the bases. Jay Jabs was next up and struck out looking, much to the chagrin of Brooklyn Hitting Coach Sean Ratliff, who was ejected by home plate umpire Jude Koury for arguing balls and strikes. With two outs, Darryl Knight made good contact, sending a ball deep into the right centerfield gap, but Ty Moore made a running grab to end the frame with Brooklyn still trailing 1-0.

It would stay that way until the bottom of the sixth when Brooklyn was finally able to break through. All-Star Colby Woodmansee got things started with a single deep in the hole at shortstop and moved up to second on a single off the bat of Brandon Brosher. Blake Tiberi followed with a productive out, as the lefthanded hitter pulled a ball to the right side of the infield, allowing both runners to move into scoring position. With Ali Sanchez at the plate, West Virginia hurler Stephan Meyer uncorked a wild pitch that allowed Woodmansee to trot home from third and knot the score at 1-1. One pitch later, Sanchez would give the Cyclones the lead. With the infield drawn in and the go-ahead run at third base, the Cyclones catcher hit a hard ground ball to second base, but the relay throw from Albert Baur to the plate was not in time as Brosher slid in safely to give Brooklyn a 2-1 advantage.

Gabriel Llanes cruised through 7.0 innings for Brooklyn, allowing just one unearned on four hits while striking out a pair, needing just 78 pitches to do so. The righthander faced the minimum over his final 3.0 innings on the mound before turning the ball over to Gary Cornish in the eighth. The righthander tossed a scoreless frame to set up Joe Zanghi, who tossed a scoreless ninth to collect his fifth save of the year.

The Cyclones will head into the All-Star Break with a record of 30-26 and just 3.0 games out in the race for the McNamara Division lead. The Cyclones will open the home stretch of the season with a three-game series against the Staten Island Yankees on Wednesday at Richmond County Bank Ballpark. RHP Merandy Gonzalez will take the mound for Brooklyn. RHP Harol Gonzalez and SS Colby Woodmansee will represent Brooklyn in the 2016 NYPL All-Star Game to be played at Dutchess Stadium on Tuesday night.
