July 13 in Connecticut
The Cyclones’ losing streak reached four — and the team’s record fell back to .500 — as the Brooks got shut out by the Tigers.
Starter Corey Oswalt was clearly not himself tossing just four innings, and giving up four runs on nine hits. Scarlyn Reyes came in as relief in the sixth inning and kept the Tigers at bay until the seventh as he gave up the final two Tiger Runs. Luis Rengel came in to finish off the seventh inning and managed to not give up a run.
The only noise Cyclones bats made came in the fifth when both Jeff Diehl and Joe Tuschak had singles, but William Fulmer line into a double play to end the threat.
With the loss, the Cyclones get bumped to third place in the McNamara division. The worst news, though, is that the hated Staten Island Yankees have now leapfrogged our boys, moving a half game ahead into second place.
The Mini-Mets look to end the skid on Monday, again in Connecticut. Game time is 7:05.
