Cyclones 2
Connecticut 1

July 13 at Connecticut

An RBI double by Anthony Chavez in the ninth drove in James “Papa” Roche to break the tie and John Mincone held Connecticut at bay for the 2–1 win.

The Cyclones started off with a bang when leadoff man Patrick “To Infinity and” Biondi tripled to right, and shortstop Juan Gamboa grounded out, allowing Biondi to come home on just the second at-bat of the game.

The Tigers tied it in the third, when Austin Schotts recorded the first of only two hits by the team, and made it home on a fielder’s choice.

In the ninth, Cyclones’ Eris Peguero singled to center, and Roche took his place at first as a pinch runner. Chavez then hit his line drive to left, bringing Roche around for the winning run.

The Brooklyn pitching was led by starter Miller Diaz, who struck out seven Tigerst. In the bottom of the ninth, Mincone entered to pick up his team-leading fourth save.

The Cyclones will play the Tigers again today in Connecticut at 4:05 pm.
