The Cyclones & Ironbirds would battle this one out over 11 innings. For 10 innings, the game would remain scoreless, even though both teams would threaten.
Brooklyn’s Marcos Molina & Aberdeen’s Dylan Bundy would both pitch lights out, but neither would get the run support needed to get to W. Bundy, on a rehab assignment, struck out 9 Cyclones on the night. Brooklyn would finally get on the board in the Top of the 11th.
With Stefan Crichton on the mound, Tucker Tharp would reach 2nd on an error by Hector Veloz. Joe Tuschak would single to center, giving Brooklyn 1st & 3rd with no outs. Tuschak would advance to 2nd on defensive indifference. Tyler Moore would strike out, but due to a wild pitch, Tharp would score, Tuschak would go to 3rd & Moore would reach 1st giving Brooklyn 1st & 3rd with no outs and a 1-0 lead. Like Tuschak, Moore would go to 2nd on defensive indifference. Michael Katz went down looking, but Michael Bernal singled in Tuschak giving Brooklyn 1st & 3rd, 1 out and a 2-0 lead. Jhoan Urena would be thrown out bunting, but it was enough to score Moore and give Brooklyn a 3-0 lead. With Bernal on 2nd and 2 outs, Anthony Chavez went down looking.
Aberdeen would fight back in the 11th. With Shane Bay in, he would give up back to back singles to Justin Viele and Steve Wilkerson, giving Aberdeen 1st & 3rd. Alex Murphy would hit a sac fly to score Viele. That would be all for Aberdeen as Riley Palmer would fly out to center and Cory Segui would ground out to 3rd, giving the Cyclones a 3-1 win, improving them to 6-2, tied for best in the NYPL with Mahoning Valley.
