BROOKLYN CYCLONES: Brooks Drop Second Straight to the Richmond Count Bombers.
Richmond County packed the house and watched their Baby Bombers take a second straight game from the visiting Cyclones Satrurday night in the Ballpark at St. George, and now lead this installment of the Battle of the Boroughs two games to one. The Brooks will now look to gain a series split in Game Four on Sunday in Coney Island.
After Bombers' starting pitcher Evan Rutckyj allowed Brooklyn one run in the third, he clamped down on them for the rest of his seven innings pitched. The Cyclones' lone run came on a home run by DH Jeffery Glenn. Otherwise, Rutckyj allowed three scattered hits, walked one, and struck out six. Reliever James Pazos took care of Brooklyn over the last two innings. He allowed one hit, and struck out one batter for his second save of the season.
Luis Cessa made his sixth start for the Cyclones. He was just fine through five innings, somewhat matching Staten Island's starter. Luis surrendered but three hits and one earned run. He walked walked two and struck out four before giving way to the bullpen in a 1-1 game. Matthew Bowman was first out of the Brooklyn pen, and got roughed up by the Yanks. He allowed five hits in two innings pitched. He surrendered the go-ahead run, an additional insurance run in the sixth, and took the loss.
