Cyclones Get Scrapped From Playoffs
A sputtering offense was one of the many culprits which ended the Brooklyn Cyclones playoff campaign on Wednesday night. Scrappers right hander Vidal Nuno pitched five scoreless innings and the Cyclones only had two hits as they lost 3-1 to Mahoning Valley, and were swept in the best of three series.
The Cyclones, who qualified as the wild card, were outpitched by the Scrappers as they had best record at 49-27 in the New York Penn League.
Nuno followed a stellar performance by Clayton Cook, who also held the Cyclones scoreless in 5 innings of work on Tuesday night in Brooklyn. Mahoning Valley also won 3-1.
Brandon Moore allowed three runs on five hits on Wednesday night for the Cyclones. Though three pitchers held the Scrappers scoreless, the Cyclones offense sputtered with Ralph Henriquez and John Servidio getting the only two hits. In his first year with Brooklyn Manager Pedro Lopez guided the team to a 45-30 record.
