Game 2- @ Brooklyn Cyclones 9, Jamestown Jammers 8- 12 innings

The Brooklyn Cyclones force a decisive game 3, as a Jamestown wild pitch allowed ZeErika McQueen (pictured, courtesy of brooklyncyclones.com) to score the game winning run in the bottom of the 12th.? The win puts the Cyclones one win away from the NYPL Championship series.?

Angel Cuan pitched?seven?solid innings, giving up?four hits,?three runs, walking three, and striking out five.? Cuan left the game up to the bullpen to hold a 6-3 lead, but?Jamestown pounced on Johan Figuereo (1/3 IP, 4 hits, 4 runs, 3 er) in the top of the eighth, scoring four times to take a 7-6 lead.? The Cyclones fought back in the bottom of the inning, with a two-out rally.? Darrell Ceciliani (2-3, 2 runs, 3 bb, 2 SB) walked, moved to second on a wild pitch, then scored on a J.B. Brown?(2-5, 2 RBI) infield single.? According to Josh Mevorach?(brooklyncyclones.com),?Brooklyn manager, Wally Backman took a chance in sending Ceciliani home, as the shortstop fielded the ball in short left-field but stumbled, giving Backman a small window to send the runner home.? The ball would beat Ceciliani home, but a wide slide allowed him to get his hand in safely to score the tying run.? Ceciliani would wreak havoc all night, reaching base safely five times, scoring two runs, and stealing two bases.?

Monday afternoon, the Brooklyn Cyclones released their initial roster of 2009.? Many more players will be added over the course of the season, perhaps even before Opening Night Friday, at home against the Staten Island Yankees.? To my eyes, it's currently one of the weaker Cyclones rosters in the last few years.

You can meet some of these Mets prospects on Tuesday and Wednesday.? Tuesday the team, the mascots, and the coaches will be at Prospect park, on the Long Meadow at the 9th St. entrance from 6 PM to 8 pm.? On Wednesday, the players will again be out at Borough Hall from 11:30-1:30 signing autographs and hanging out.

For every player, I will give, B/T, Ht/Wt, Date of Birth
