qmeme_1470585768771_585The Cyclones wasted another great pitching opportunity last night, as they were once again held to just 3 hits and lost another winnable game.

Brooklyn would get their lone run of the game in the Top of the 2nd.  With Enrique Chavez on the mound for Tri-City, Gene Cone led off with a single to center. After a strikeout by Brandon Brosher, Cone stole 2nd & took 3rd on an error. Blake Tiberi hit a ball to 1B Taylor Jones, who misplayed it, allowing Cone to score. Ali Sanchez flew out and Tiberi was caught stealing to end the inning.

Thomas Szapucki got the start for the Cyclones and was dominant from the start. Through the first 5 innings, he pitched no-hit ball for the second straight outing. However, he ran into trouble in the Bottom of the 6th.  Marcos Almonte led off with a walk, stole 2nd & took 3rd on the throwing error by Brosher. Miguelangel Sierra grounded out, but did not advanced Almonte. Brauly Mejia doubled to center, scoring Almonte to tie the game.

That would be it for Szapucki, as Taylor Henry was summoned in to pitch. Chuckie Robinson singled to center, moving Mejia to 3rd. Taylor Jones singled to right, scoring Mejia and moving Robinson to 2nd. A wild pitch made it 2nd & 3rd. Henry got out of it by getting Ronnie Dawson & Spencer Johnson to line out.

Tyler Wolfe led off the Bottom of the 7th with a homer to make it 3-1.

Jay Jabs led off the Top of the 8th with a single, the last of the 3 hits the Cyclones would have on the night.

Ty Williams came in to pitch the Bottom of the 8th. Coming off an appearance on Monday that did not see him throw a single strike, saw him give up a leadoff walk to Robinson. A wild pitch sent Robinson to 2nd. Taylor Jones went down swinging, but a passed ball sent Robinson to 3rd. Dawson was called out on strikes, but a double by Johnson scored Robinson. Wolfe grounded out to end the inning.

The Cyclones went down in order in the Top of the 9th and once again, fell to .500 on the season.
