Brooklyn, NY – It was a day to forget for the Cyclones as they fell to the Winston-Salem Dash on Wednesday afternoon by the score of 8-0. Brooklyn managed just two hits – both by Jose Peroza – while Tyler Osik hit for the cycle to highlight the offensive effort for the Dash.
Oscar Rojas made the emergency start for the Cyclones after Brooklyn’s scheduled starter, RHP Carson Seymour, was traded to the San Francisco Giants on Tuesday as part of the deal to acquire Daren Ruf. Rojas tossed 3.0 shutout frames in spot duty, but LHP Cam Opp (1-3) did not far so well.
The southpaw allowed six runs on six hits, including a pair of home runs, over his 1.2 innings on the mound. Justin Courtney tossed a season-high 3.1 innings in relief as well, allowing a pair of runs on a two run home run from Keegan Fish to cap the scoring in the top of the eighth.
Offensively for Brooklyn, Jose Peroza was the lone batter to collect a base and the ‘Clones struck out 13 times to give them 25 ks in two games against Winston-Salem.
Brooklyn will look to bounce back on Thursday evening when they send Dominic Hamel to the mound. Game time is 7:00 PM and the first 2,000 fans in attendance will receive Forza Soccer Jerseys as part of Italian Night at the ballpark.
