qmeme_1404961552039_94The Brooklyn Cyclones won their 1st game of the season vs a non-McNamara Division team. The start of the game was delayed 19 minutes because the umpires Jacob Metz and Chris Marco were late.

The Cyclones took an early lead in the Top of the 2nd. With Daniel Poncedeleon on the mound for the Spikes Tyler Moore led off with a walk & stole 2nd. 2 Batters later, Joe Tuschak singled him in to give Brooklyn a 1-0.

Amed Rosario led off the Top of the 3rd with a walk. Poncedeleon then threw a wild pitch, moving Rosario to 2nd. Tucker Tharp grounded out to move Rosario to 3rd. Jhoan Urena went down swinging & Michael Katz drew a walk. That would be all for Poncedeleon. Jeff Rauh came in & gave up a triple to Michael Bernal, scoring Rosario & Katz. Moore grounded out to end the inning, but Brooklyn had a 3-0 lead.

Scarlyn Reyes got his 1st win of the year, throwing 5 shutout innings, allowing 5 hits and a walk while striking out 4. Former Cyclone Luis Mateo pitched an inning in relief as part of a rehab assignment, giving up a hit. Eddie Villasmil pitched a 3rd of an inning, giving up 2 hits and hitting a batter. Kelly Secrest got out of the jam & pitched another scoreless inning.

Brooklyn would add another in the Top of the 9th, thanks to a solo shot by Joe Tuschak off Tyler Bray. Brooklyn would load the bases, but not score any more runs. Shane Bay came in to close it out, but didn’t get the save, as the Cyclones were up 4 runs. Bay did strike out 2 of the 3 he faced.

The Cyclones improve to 15-11 on the season. They still remain 4 games behind the Renegades, as Hudson Valley beat Mahoning Valley 11-3. Elsewhere in the league, Staten Island beat the Lowell Spinners 5-3. Auburn beat Connecticut 3-1. while Batavia fell to Aberdeen 2-1 for Aberdeen’s 7th win of the season. The Valley Cats beat the Jammers 6-5 in Jamestown, while the Crosscutters beat Vermont 7-5 at home.
