Connecticut 6
Cyclones 4

July 14 at Connecticut

The Cyclones scored the first four runs of the game, but watched as the Tigers score six in a row to steal the second game of a three-game-set from Brooklyn on Sunday.

The Clones scored two runs each in the second and sixth innings. The first two came on a two-RBI single from first baseman Matt “Bright Eyes” Oberste. In the sixth, Ismael “T.J.” Tijerina, L.J. “Mini-Maz” Mazzilli and Jared King loaded the bases, before a Connecticut throwing error allowed Tijerina to score. Oberste then hit in Mazzilli on a fielder’s choice to put the Cyclones up by two.

But the bottom of the sixth became a nightmare for the Boys of Summer, when three Cyclones pitchers faced 10 batters and allowed four runs.

The Tigers added another two in the eighth off pitcher Paul Paez to take the two-run lead. The Cyclones made a wo-out comeback bid in the top of the ninth when James “Papa” Roche hit his second double of the night and Patrick “To Infinity and” Biondi singled to put Roche on third. But Julio Concepcion grounded out to end the game.

The Cyclones will play the Tigers in the last game of the set today at 11:05 am.

Reasonable discourse

John Wasserman from Winsor Terrace says:
Perhaps it would be a better idea to onlt write article when the team wins. It would save a lot of time and space. I'm sorry, but this is just one man's opinion.
