Star of the Night
The Star from last night was none other than Cyclones' right fielder Cory Vaughn as his two-run home run accounted for all the Brooklyn scoring in this game. Vaughn had a superb pro debut, immediately forcing himself into the discussion for top outfield prospect in the system and thus far in the NYPL playoffs it's been more of the same as he's batting .294 with four RBI's and a bomb in four games.
Our Goat here is c Blake Forsythe off his 0-for-4 with two strikeouts (is there a Bronze Sombrero?). There were plenty of 0-fers last night but Forsythe gets the horns as he continued a season-long trend of striking out wayyy too much.
- Once again, the Cyclones dropped the first game in their best of three series with Tri-City 5-2 last night. Despite a bomb from RF Cory Vaughn, the 'Clones offense was uncharacteristically quiet in this one, tallying just three hits overall; two in the first, one in the fourth, then nothing for the last five. Starter RHP AJ Pinera didn't have the stuff that gave him a 2.41 ERA in eleven starts this year and a costly error didn't help as he allowed four runs over four innings. The Brooklyn bullpen was much better, allowing just one more run over the final five, but unfortunately with the bats stuck on snooze all night, the Cyclones never got back in this one. Boxscore
