Staten Island 2

Cyclones 1

Sept. 6 on Staten Island (Six innings)

Yankees pitchers Juan De Paula and Kaleb Ort allowed just two hits and one run between them, and the Evil Empire did just enough to hand the Cyclones a third-straight loss in a rain-shortened game.

The Yankees got all their runs in early. With runners on second and third, Timmy Robinson grounded out to score Manny Argomaniz. After a wild pitch advanced Welfrin Mateo to third, Kendall Coleman grounded out to score Mateo to make it 2–0 in the second.

Our boys got their lone run two innings later. Dylan Snypes was walked to lead off the inning before Jose Maria doubled to score Snypes to make it 2–1.

The game was called mid-way through the sixth inning because of the rainy conditions, which sealed the loss for the Clones.

The loss makes our boys 24–51 with one last chance tonight to fulfill the promise of a “Drive for 25” wins this season. Pretty much everything has gone wrong for the 2017 Brooklyn Cyclones, but their one saving grace would be to end the season on a high note by beating the playoff-bound Staten Island one last time.

The Yankees, of course, have the best record in the New York–Penn League at 45–29, and will begin the playoffs on Saturday at beautiful Richmond County Bank Ballpark on the Rock.

The two will square off tonight at MCU Park at 6 pm.

Retire Gamby? I'm afraid that poor Fonzie will soon be joining him.
