The Brooklyn Cyclones (15-16) are currently in the middle of one of their toughest stretches of play, currently the team is on a six-game losing streak with the latest rough night coming in the form of a 5-2 game to the Jamestown Jammers (12-18) on Wednesday night.
Brooklyn has just been unable to answer the call with runners in scoring position, with this month of July being an unfriendly one to the Cyclones as the team is currently 4-11.
The Cyclones showed glimpses of life but just were unable to cash in on the opportunities they did have. Brooklyn plated runs in the bottom of the second and third innings but could not find the hits needed in the later part of the games to regain the momentum.
Driving in the runs in the game were Michael Bernal who hit a sacrifice fly in the bottom of the second and Jhoan Urena who recorded a RBI double in the bottom of the third. Urena is currently the only player in the NYPL who has appeared in 32 games this season. Tomas Nido recorded two hits in the game, while Amed Rosario, Michael Katz and Anthony Chavez all tallied a hit in the game.
Brooklyn will look to snap out of the July slumber on Thursday in the second of a three-game set with the Jamestown Jammers to be played at MCU Park. First Pitch is set for 7:00 p.m. and the pitching matchup for that game may feature a battle of right-handed pitchers as Cyclones Casey Mesiner (0-2, 5.40 ERA) takes on Jammers Marek Minarik (1-2, 3.38 ERA).
