High-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (22-25)
BROOKLYN 8, JERSEY SHORE 4 (BOX)
Mike Vasil, frankly, looked like trash. He allowed four runs in the first, but settled down to a degree, but never really at any point looked particularly good. His fastball gave up a lot of loud contact, and he switched gears in the second until he was removed from the game and threw it less, but then his lack of command of his secondaries began to become an issue. A better disciplined team probably would’ve drew a few more walks, but the BlueClaws were not that team. The Cyclones slowly whittled away at Jersey Shore’s lead until the ninth, when reliever Jason Ruffcorn and the BlueClaw defense had a complete meltdown. Brooklyn ended up scoring six runs in the bottom of the ninth, highlighted by a Joe Suozzi bases-clearing triple. Sometimes nepotism does pay off.
