qmeme_1404586826202_182Brooklyn looked to end their losing streak last night & hoped they would be able to with Dillon Gee starting against the 2-17 Aberdeen Ironbirds.

Aberdeen scored the 1st run in the Top of the 2nd. Jamill Moquete hit a 2 out double to center. Federico Castagnini then singled him in for Dillon Gee’s lone earned run of the night.

Brooklyn struck back in the Bottom of the 3rd. With Josh Walker on the mound, Will Fulmer drew a leadoff walk. Tucker Tharp & Amed Rosario, who both returned from injuries, both struck out. Jhoan Urena continued his hot hitting by doubling to left, scoring Fulmer & tying the game at 1.

Dillon Gee pitched well, giving up just 1 earned run and 3 hits while striking out 10 over 6 innings, but did not get the run support. Aberdeen pulled ahead in Top of the 8th, thanks to a leadoff double by Steve Wilkerson. Riley Plamer grounded to 1st, moving Wilkerson to 3rd. Jay Gonzalez singled Wilkerson in, giving Aberdeen a 2-1 lead. Gonzalez then stole 2nd, then moved to 3rd on a throwing error by Tomas Nido. Oswill Lartiguez grounded out to Josh Prevost, allowing Gonzalez to score.

Brooklyn did make it interesting in the Bottom of the 9th. Michael Katz led off with a foul out to 1B Riley Palmer. Michael Bernal the singled left. Manager Tom Gamboa sent Jeff Diehl to hit for Tyler Moore, who went 0-3 on the night. Diehl hit a ball to deep left that hit off the LF wall that just missed being a game tying HR. Diehl ended up with a double, giving Brooklyn 2nd & 3rd with 1 out. Nido grounded out to third, scoring Bernal and moving the tying run to 3rd. However, Joe Tuschak swung at the 1st pitch & flew out to left, giving Brooklyn their 3rd straight loss.
