Williamsport 8

Cyclones 2

August 27 at Williamsport

Brooklyn’s late-season slump continued on Saturday night as the Cyclones dropped an 8–2 tilt at Williamsport, falling under .500. The Clones made four errors in the loss.

Williamsport took a first-inning lead against Brooklyn starter Gabriel Llanes. Luke Maglich singled, moved to third on David Martinelli’s single and scored on Darick Hall’s sacrifice fly.

In the second, Chandler Hall singled with two outs and came around to score from first when Evan Rogers smacked a ball to third. A Blake Tiberi throwing error helped Hall ease into home – the first of several fielding miscues for Brooklyn.

In the third, Darick Hall hit a two-run homer to extend the lead to 4–0.

Brooklyn got on the board in the fourth as Gene Cone scored on a passed ball, but Williamsport responded with two in the fifth. Derrick Hall doubled in a run and then came in to score on a Brett Barbier single.

Llanes fell to 4–7, giving up six runs on 10 hits over six innings.

Williamsport starter Felix Paulino held Brooklyn to just one run on two hits in six innings of work.

The Crosscutters scored a pair of unearned runs off Austin McGeorge in the eighth.

Tiberi’s run-scoring single in the ninth plated Cone – who collected two of Brooklyn’s five hits – but it was too little, too late as the Cyclones once again struggled to put bat on ball.

Tyler Hallead pitched the final three innings for the Crosscutters, giving up one run on three hits.

Brooklyn will look to take the rubber match in Williamsport on Sunday.


Michael Paez committed his eighth error of the season as he is still learning to play second base.

Now away from Coney Island, the Cyclones are playing quickly, with Saturday’s finishing in just over two-and-a-half hours.
