BKLYN Falls to SI, 2-1


Staten Island, NY – September 6, 2017 -- In a game cancelled because of rain after five-and-a-half innings, an unearned run in the second inning proved to be the difference in Brooklyn’s 2-1 loss Wednesday to Staten Island.

After Manny Argomaniz walked and Welfrin Mateo singled to begin the frame for the Yankees (45-29), a passed ball charged to Cyclones catcher Jose Maria allowed both runners to advance 90-ft., putting them at second and third. Two run-scoring groundouts later in the inning gave Staten Island a 2-0 lead.

The Cyclones (24-51) cut the deficit in half in the top of the fourth. Dylan Snypes worked a leadoff walk and came around from first base three batters later, when
Jose Maria lined a double into the left-center field gap.

Brooklyn had a chance to tie the ballgame later in the inning, but Carl Stajduhar’s line-drive ricocheted off of Staten Island right-hander Juan De Paula (5-5) right to shortstop Wilkerman Garcia, who was able to retire Stajduhar for the final out of the frame. The Cyclones squandered a chance to tie the ballgame in the next inning as well, stranding runners on the corners.

Cyclones starter right-hander Briam Campusano (0-1) kept the Yankees at bay for most of the evening, allowing just one hit and two runs (one earned) in his 5.0 innings of work. The right-hander struck out seven batters and walked just one on 61 pitches (42 strikes).

Just before Campusano fired his first pitch in the sixth, the rain that had been falling throughout the contest became too much to play through, forcing a delay and the eventual cancellation of the final few innings.

With the loss, the season series between the Cyclones and Yankees draws even at 6-6 heading into the “Battle for the Bridge” series—and season—finale tomorrow.

Brooklyn wraps up the 2017 season tomorrow night at MCU Park, hosting the Staten Island Yankees at 6:00 p.m. New York Mets right-hander Noah Syndergaard is scheduled to make a rehab start for Brooklyn, and right-hander Daniel Alvarez is the listed hurler for Staten Island.

The Brooklyn Cyclones are offering $15 tickets for tomorrow night’s game, with all proceeds benefiting Hurricane Harvey relief. The first 2,000 fans in attendance will receive a Cyclones wall calendar PLUS there will be post-game fireworks.
