BKLYN Makes It Five in a Row With 1-0 Win

Brooklyn, NY – September 2, 2017 – On a night when the Cyclones celebrated SpongeBob Squarepants, MCU Park felt like it was Bikini Bottom with rain drops falling shortly after first pitch. But the Cyclones fought off the Spinners and Mother Nature for a 1-0 win on Saturday night, the team’s fifth straight win, in just five innings for the rain-shortened victory.

Mets first round pick David Peterson made the start for the Cyclones – his first since mid –August following a procedure on his foot. The left hander tossed a spotless inning, striking out two of the three batters he faced.

Trent Johnson ( 3-5) came on in relief and tossed 4.0 shutout innings, scattering a pair of hits and striking out four to collect the win. Brooklyn pitchers have now allowed just 10 earned runs over their last 78.0 innings on the mound.

While the Cyclones pitching was sharp all night, the Brooklyn bats failed to capitalize on several scoring chances early on. In the bottom of the first, Wagner Lagrange had a two-out double and was later thrown out try to score on a single off the bat of Jose Medina to end the frame.

In the second, Brooklyn loaded the bases with two outs, but Walter Rasquin grounded out to third to end the threat. An inning later Brooklyn had runners on the corners with two-outs and Scott Manea flied out to centerfield to end the threat.

But in the fourth, the Cyclones were finally able to break through. Dylan Snypes, who was 2-for-2 on the night, started the rally with a one-out single. Guillermo Granadillo followed with a single of his own that chased Snypes to third, but Granadillo got caught in a run down between first and second for out number two. With Rasquin batting, Lowell catcher Nick Sciortino allowed a passed ball, which chased Snypes home with the game’s only run.

In the top of the fifth, Johnson set down the Spinners in order to make it an official game, with the home team leading after four and a half innings. After about a 30-minute rain delay, with fireworks to provide entertainment, the game was called.

The Cyclones, winners of eight of their last nine games, will now head to the Connecticut to take on the Tigers for a three-game set starting on Sunday at 4:05 PM. Brooklyn will then return to MCU Park to close out the season on Thursday for Fan Appreciation Day against the cross-bridge rival Staten Island Yankees.
