This is a recap of the game on 7/1.
Well, the best thing about this one was the give-away jerseys at the start of the contest. Despite their borough being a total joke, Staten Island managed 7 runs on 10 hits off of Brooklyn, with its Coney Island and its Prospect Park and its, you know, stuff to see. 'Clones starter Wes Wrenn, regular contributer to Wes's Week that Was, has a profile on linked in. He also gave up four runs in 5+, including back to back 4-baggers to right field. As for Cyclones bats, CF Darrell Ciciliani, hitting leader of the New York Penn League (at .418), started his day with two doubles and walked a couple times, too. He was not, however, picked up by the middle of the order: high-draft pick Cory Vaughn and erstwhile hero Jeff "salute the" Flagg ran a big fat nothing up the pole. The rest of the offense came from DH J.B. Brown and SS Luis Nieves, the latter of whom played 35 games in Brooklyn last year and hit .142. He had a triple, a single, and a stolen base tonight. Right on, Luis.
Wally wasn't tossed tonight and the errors committed (3) weren't that funny. OK, one was a little funny: a ball dropped by Cyclones left fielder Cody Holliday (Hday 7, but not that one). It was one of those balls that shoots up high in the air and usually lands in a glove. My other funny anecdote is that I saw a guy in a camo Bobby Parnell jersey.
The first pitch was thrown out by these guys:
The one in the middle is not a wrestler professionally.
