Brooklyn took an early lead, but could not hold on, as the Jammers edged the Cyclones 3-2 on Friday in Jamestown. The offense managed just four hits for the second straight night, with 1B Ike Davis
notching two hits, while DH Reese Havens
and 3B Zach Lutz
had one hit each. Davis' hit extends his hitting streak to 15 games -- at least one hit in every game in which he's played.
In the top of the sixth, Brooklyn plated its only runs when Havens walked, Lutz and Davis singled, and OF Seth Williams
followed with a sacrifice fly. In the bottom of the seventh, though, Jamestown came back to score three runs and take the lead.
Cyclones starter Jeff Kaplan
tossed five scoreless innings, allowing four hits and striking out five. Matias Carrillo
came on in relief, but allowed two of the runs in the seventh, while Brandon Moore
allowed the third and was charged with the loss. Jimmy Johnson (pictured, by George Napolitano)
held the Jammers scoreless over the final 1.2 innings, but the Cyclones could not muster a comeback.
