July 12 at Auburn
The Doubleday’s Wilmer Difo hit a sacrifice fly scoring Cody Dent to break the tie in the bottom of the ninth for the 4–3 win.
The Clones took the 3–2 lead off two runs in the fourth inning. The first came when Matt “Bright Eyes” Oberste reached second on an Auburn throwing error, followed by a James “Papa” Roche single. Bright Eyes went to third, and then made it home on a wild pitch by Auburn hurler R.C. Orlan. Catcher Tomas Nido then hit an RBI single to allow Roche to score the go-ahead run.
The Doubledays tied the score in the fifth off an RBI groundout and the score remained tied until the ninth, when despite a walk by Nido and another fielding error by the Doubledays, the Cyclones couldn’t cash in.
In the bottom half, Dent doubled and Austin Chubb reached base on sacrifice bunt attempt that Nido couldn’t handle, putting Dent at third and setting up Difo’s game-winner.
The Cyclones hit the road again for a three-game set against the Connecticut Tigers, starting with tonight’s 7:05 game.Follow the Cyclones all season long at brooklynpa
