The Brooklyn Cyclones (27-14) lost the first game, but rebounded to win the second, as they split Thursday's doubleheader with the Staten Island Yankees (22-19).

Box Score

The first game of the doubleheader got off to an unusual start as Staten Island scored four times in the top of the first inning, and Brooklyn answered with three runs in the bottom of the frame.  The first inning saw the Cyclones make one error, and the Yankees make two.  A potential third error in what was ruled an out resulted in Cyclones manager Pedro Lopez being ejected on the controversial play.

Starting pitcher Darin Gorski allowed four runs in the first inning, and five more runs in the second -- including another controversial home run that the Cyclones argued was a foul ball.  In his two innings of work, Gorski allowed eight hits, nine runs, five earned, one walk, and struck out one batter.

RHP Samuel Martinez pitched three innings in relief of Gorski, and allowed three runs (two earned) on three hits, walking one and striking out five batters.

The newest Cyclone, RHP Bobby Gagg -- who joined the team today -- started the sixth inning in relief of Martinez.  Over two innings he allowed no runs on one hit, walked one and struck out one.

The Cyclones scored three runs on five hits.  CF Justin Garber, 1B Sam Honeck, LF Nick Santomauro, RF Luis Rivera and 3B Tyler Vaughn had one base hit apiece.  Vaughn's hit was an RBI double in the first inning. 

Box Score


The Cyclones bounced back to beat the Yankees by a score of 3-0 in the nightcap of Thursday's doubleheader. RHP Wes Wrenn (1-0) made the start and was stellar, allowing five hits in 5.2 scoreless innings, walking one and striking out five to earn his first win of the year.  With the Win, Wes improved his ERA to 2.92 (1.18 as a starter).

Brooklyn's 1B Sam Honeck enjoyed a "luck-of-the Irish" sort of night.  In the bottom of the first,  Honeck doubled to left-center with two outs. Sam then scored the first run of the game thanks to a wild pitch and a balk.  In the Cyclones third, Honeck (pictured, by George Napolitano) reached on a throwing error, scoring CF Justin Garber, who singled to lead off the inning.

The good luck continued in the Cyclones fourth as 3B Nick Giarraputo blasted a triple to deep center and ultimately scored on another throwing error by the Yankees.  

Brooklyn's bullpen closed things out effortlessly as Brandon Sage and Michael Powers combined for a perfect  1.1 innings in relief, earning them the hold and save, respectively. 

DH Tyler Vaughn finished the evening 0-for-3, ending his nine-game hitting streak.

On Monday, August 3rd, the Brooklyn Cyclones will host Darryl Strawberry Night, and the first 2,500 fans in attendance will receive a limited-edition “Strawbobble” – a bobblehead depicting the New York baseball legend. Strawberry will also throw out the game’s ceremonial first pitch. Strawberry is currently a Club Ambassador with the Mets, and has served as a roving coach in Brooklyn at various times throughout the past two seasons.

Strawberry will also be on hand for the Cyclones’ third annual Golf Outing, on Monday, August 10th. He will play in the tournament that day, and will be a keynote speaker at the outing’s dinner that evening.
