Aug. 20 on The Rock
The Cyclones broke two franchise records during Wednesday night’s loss against the hated Yankees — unfortunately the records were for six errors and eleven unearned runs.
The Cyclones got on the board first and scored two runs in the second inning when Tyler Moore hit his first home run of the season and a single by Adrien Abreu scored Pedro Perez, who reached on a throwing error.
With Scarlyn Reyes on the mound, the lead did not last long. The Yankees tied it up in the third inning, and the damage would not end there. The fourth inning saw seven Yankee runs that took Reyes out of the game. Reyes pitched three-and-a-third innings, giving up six runs on five hits with three walked batters. Three Cyclone errors allowed for three of the runs, and Mike Hepple came in to replace Reyes and gave up three more runs.
Luis Rengel replaced Hepple in the fifth inning and after giving up five runs on three hits, Rengel was replaced by Brandon Welch after pitching two-thirds of an inning, and Welch made it through the rest of the fifth and the sixth innings unscathed he gave up no runs, allowed one hit, and struck out one batter, bringing his earned run average down to 5.58.
Two more Cyclones runs were scored in the sixth and the eighth, but nothing could save this game.
The Cyclones return home to MCU Park for the final Jersday Thursday of the season to face the reviled Yankees.
