July 27 in Lowell
The Cyclones bats finally woke up on Sunday night as they faced the Spinners for the first time this season, putting the bat to the ball 15 times.
The Mini-Mets got an early lead in the first as Michael Conforto plated Amed Rosario, who reached on a force play that took out Adrien Abreu. The Cyclones’ lead didn’t last long as the Spinners scored two runs in the bottom of the inning.
After a rough bottom of the third inning that took out first baseman Michael Katz when he twisted his knee trying to make a play, the Clones comeback started in the fourth when Wil Fulmer hit a single that plated Michael Bernal. Bernal went four–for–four.
The Cyclone regained the lead in the fifth with the help of small ball, and continued the success late into the game, scoring four in the eighth. Spinners pitching allowed two walks and a single by Rosario, which scored the first run of the inning. Jhoan Urena had not had a hit the whole game and was at risk of ending his 12-game hitting streak but extended it with a single that scored Abreu. Bernal hit a double to plate Rosario and Urena for the final run of the game.
The Cyclones take on the Spinners again tonight in Massachusetts and return home to MCU Park on Wednesday.
