The Brooklyn Cyclones 31-19) lost a second straight game to the Jamestown jammers (20-30) on Saturday night by a score of 2-1 in 13 innings.
Collin McHugh made his tenth start of the season on Saturday night, and pitched brilliantly. McHugh (pictured, by George Napolitano) tossed 7.0 scoreless innings, allowing just three hits and one walk, while strikinjg out a season-high 12 batters. He left with the score tied at zero, and received a no-decision in the eventual Cyclones loss.
Michael Powers came on in relief of McHugh, and tossed two more shutout frames, surrendering just one hit. With no score after nine innings, Brandon Sage took the mound for Brooklyn in the 10th inning. The scoring drought ended in the Jammers' half of the inning, as an unearned run crossed the plate.
In the bottom of the 10th, though, Brooklyn fought back when Tyler Vaughn led off with a single, and was advanced to second on a bunt by Dock Doyle. One out later, Ralph Henriquez delivered an RBI single that scored Vaughn and sent the game deeper into the night.
In the 13th, though, Jamestown again scored a single run, and the Cyclones could not respond.
Vaughn, Doyle, and Henriquez were the only Cyclones with hits, notching two apiece to give the team a total of six safeties.
On Sunday, August 9th the Cyclones will wrap up the series with Jamestown at 5pm. Sunday is Season Ticket Holder Day, and there will also be a pre-game Alzheimer's Memory Walk on the warning track. In addition, the first 2,500 fans in attendance will receive a voucher for a free Carvel Ice Cream Sundae. And, every Sunday, kids get to run the bases on the field after the game (weather permitting).
