Cyclones 5
Connecticut 4

July 15 at Connecticut

Matt “Bright Eyes” Oberste’s 12th-inning, bases-loaded blast knocked in Juan Gamboa to catapult the Clones to 5—4 win over the Connecticut Tigers on Tuesday.

The Tigers scored the first two runs of the game and the Cyclones came back to record the next four. In the fourth, Brooklyn loaded the bases on singles by Gamboa and L.J. “Mini-Maz” Mazzilli and a walk by Jared King. Oberste then hit an RBI single and James “Papa” Roche hit an RBI sac fly to let Gamboa and Mazzilli score.

The Clones added another two runs in the fifth and the Brooklyn pitchers continued their league-leading play when starting Carlos Valdez retired seven straight. But the Tigers came back to tie the game in the bottom of the ninth off Johnny Magliozzi, who pitched for the first time in a Cyclones uniform.

After two scoreless extra innings, the Clones loaded the bases with the same players in the same way they did in the fourth, and Oberste again delivered. Tim Peterson held the Tigers at bay in the bottom of the frame to record his first save of the year.

The Cyclones get a rare day off today and then return to play the Mahoning Valley Scrappers for a three-game series at MCU Park starting on Wednesday.

Brooklyn Cyclones vs. Mahoning Valley Scrappers at MCU Park (Surf Avenue and W. 16th Street in Coney Island, on July 17 at 7 pm.

Reasonable discourse

PD from Downtown Brooklyn says:
great job! i would also extend the same sentiments to your editor but, of course, that person doesn't exist. btw - a walk off win is something a home team does (they were on the road) and they never loaded the bases in the 12th. for whatever its worth, the game you made up sounds more exciting!
