Tri-City 5
Cyclones 3

Aug. 27 at MCU Park (16 innings)

L.J. “Mini-Maz” Mazzilli hit his fourth home run of the season to send the game into extra innings, but the Valley Cats put two runs on in the 16th to steal the longest game of the year.

The Cyclones started off the scoring in the third inning, when Jonathan Clark singled and Gavin Cecchini hit an RBI double down the right field line to score Clark. Cecchini later made it home on a wild pitch by Tri-City pitcher Michael Feliz to take the 2–0 lead.

The Valley Cats rebounded in the fourth, when Tyler White led off with a homer and Ronnie Mitchell and Chan Moon each hit RBI singles to take the lead, which would last all the way to the eighth inning, when Mazzilli tied the game with a solo shot over the left field wall.

The Clones had some chances in extra innings, reaching at least second base four different times through the seven extra innings, including one runner reaching third, but Brooklyn couldn’t capitalize.

Tri-City’s Jack Mayfield led off with a walk in the 16th, before Tyler White was hit by a pitch. A sacrifice bunt moved the runners to second and third and the runners came home on two different RBIs to score the winning runs.

The Cyclones did not lose any ground in the divisional race, as Aberdeen also lost, keeping the Clones with a half game of the division lead.

The rubber match against the Wildcats is tonight.

Brooklyn Cyclones at MCU Park (Surf Avenue and W. 16th Street in Coney Island, www.brooklyncyclones.com) on Aug. 28 at 7 pm.
