Brooklyn is now 2-6 since the All-Star Break and fall below .500 for the first time since August 7th. Franklin Correa had a 2-for-4 day at the plate, while also tossing a 1.0 scoreless frame on the mound.
Starting Pitcher Erik Manoah was able to strike out six batters in 3.2 Innings Pitched, he also gave up six hits, giving up four runs (four unearned runs). Gene Cone had a nice day at the plate for Brooklyn, recording two hits, while also scoring a run.
