June 21 at Aberdeen
Three Cyclones pitchers didn’t yield a run for 10 innings, and a sloppy 11th for the Ironbirds led to three Brooklyn runs as the Mini-Mets outlasted the IronBirds.
Marcos Molina threw seven innings of two-hit ball, Edioglis Villasmil threw two scoreless frames, and Juan Urbina added one before the Cyclones finally broke through in the top of the 11th inning, scoring the go-ahead run on a dropped third strike, then adding two more.
Molina struck out five batters and didn’t walks any, lowering his earned-run average to 0.69.
Shane Bay earned his third save of the year, despite giving up a run in the 11th.
Through 81.2 innings of play this season, Brooklyn’s pitchers have allowed just 14 earned runs, giving them a shocking low 1.54 earned run average.
The first-place Cyclones look to take out the brooms today in a sweep against the Ironbirds at Aberdeen at 5:35.
