Electricity was in the air in Coney Island as the Brooklyn Cyclones who are in the Nlew York-Penn League Championship against the Lowell Spinners. For Brooklyn Baseball the fact that playoff baseball is here is history in the making the last time the Cyclones even saw the New York-Penn League playoffs was in 2010, that was when they were Co-Champions, so now they have themselves a chance to win the championship outright.
They are going up against a Lowell Spinners team, who have a long history of playing solid playoff baseball and both have fans who are extremely passionate and loyal to their team. Lowell entered the game wanting to show that yes they did in fact belong in this Championship game, after dropping Game One by a final score of 2-1.
Game Two was just as nerve-wracking, as the Spinners saw hits from Stephen Scott and Gilberto Jimenez plating in clutch runs that gave Lowell a 3-1 lead. The Cyclones would not go down on this night without a fight as Ranfy Adon plated the team’s first run of the game on a single to the infield.
The Cyclones also saw some really great hits by Luke Ritter and Joe Genord to help lead the offense in the game. Genord led all Cyclones with three hits.
Both Lowell and Brooklyn had themselves some outstanding pitching performances as Brooklyn starter and Long Island-native Frank Valentino, pitched 4.1 innings and fanning five batters, while Lowell starter Noah Song had himself three stellar innings.
Tonight (Tuesday) the Cyclones and the Spinners play a Winner-Take-All Game Three to determine the Champion of the New York-Penn League. During the regular season the Cyclones held a 4-5 mark against Lowell, while leading the all-time series 60-48. Brooklyn will give the ball to RHP Nate Jones (0-0, 0.00 ERA) , who already has some great playoff experience pitching well against the Hudson Valley Renegades.
