BROOKLYN SHUTOUT BY DOUBLEDAYS, 5-0

 


BROOKLYN, NY – August 30, 2016 – The Cyclones were officially eliminated from playoff contention on Tuesday night as they fell to the Auburn Doubledays by the score of 5-0. It marked the sixth time this season that Brooklyn has been shutout, with all six coming at MCU Park.

RHP Justin Dunn made the start for the Cyclones on Tuesday night and continued to impress on the mound since being selected in the 1st Round of the 2016 MLB Draft. Dunn scattered three hits over 3.0 innings, walking one and striking out five. The hard throwing righthander has now tossed 14.0 shutout frames at MCU Park this season with 22 strikeouts while allowing just six hits.

But when Dunn departed after his scheduled 3.0 inning outing, the Doubledays quickly pounced on Erik Manoah (5-5). After the righthander tossed a scoreless fourth inning, Auburn opened the scoring in the top of the fifth. Erik VanMeetren got things started with a leadoff walk before Daniel Johnson singled and both runners advanced on a Dalton Dulin sac bunt. With runners on second and third, Manoah uncorked a wild pitch that allowed VanMeetren to score and Nick Banks followed with a roped single to right field that made it 2-0.

Auburn tacked on an insurance run in the sixth when Luis Vilorio laid down a squeeze bunt, which was mishandled by Manoah as he attempted to throw out Paul Panaccione at the plate. In the end everyone was safe on the bases and the Doubledays lead was pushed to 3-0.

In the eighth Auburn would tack on yet another run, this time without the benefit of a hit. Dillon Becker walked a pair and hit a batter to load the bases with one out, before walking Dalton Dulin to force home a run and extend the Doubledays lead to 4-0. Becker now has issued 26 walks in 22.1 innings this season.

Auburn rounded out the scoring in the top of the ninth when Alejandro Castro surrendered a leadoff triple to Panaccione, who scored later in the frame on an RBI groundout from Andres Martinez to push their lead to 5-0.

That’s how it would stay, as Brooklyn went in order in the bottom of the 9th.

The Cyclones will look to salvage the finale of the three-game set with the Doubledays on Wednesday night when they send Harol Gonzalez (6-2, 1.57) to the mound. The Cyclones will then head to Aberdeen for three before returning to MCU Park on Sunday to close out the 2016 home campaign against the Staten Island Yankees. Tickets are still available and can be purchased by calling 718-507-TIXX, logging on to BrooklynCyclones.com or in person at the MCU Park Box Office.
