BROOKLYN CYCLONES: Bums Take Bite Out of Muckdogs.
The Cyclones and Batavia Muckdogs will take a second crack at playing a twin bill today out in Western New York. They tried fitting in two games yesterday, but the weather was uncooperative for a second straight day. They were also rained out Tuesday.
They did manage to get one game in on Wednesday. And it was all Cyclones. Brooklyn got on the scoreboard first with four runs in the second inning on a 2-RBI single by Ismael Tijerina, and a 2-RBI double by Javier Rodriguez.
Batavia got two back in the eighth inning. Then the Cyclones busted out with another five runs in the top of the ninth. After a Daniel Muno double, Javier Rodriguez singled him home. Richard Lucas walked and Brian Harrison reached on an E-6 to load the bases. Travis Taijeron then pummelled a pitch over the right field wall for a grand slam; his 8th home run of the season; to make the score 9-2 Cyclones.
Brooklyn starter, Marcos Camarena, was sweet over 5.2 innings pitched. He allowed only four hits and no runs. In his second win of the season, he walked only one batter while striking out six. The rock-solid Brooklyn bullpen was a little flaky, but finished the job.
