Savannah Sand Gnats 7, @ Greensboro Grasshoppers 3

There were many nice performances in this one as the Gnats earned a split of the first two games of the SAL Championship series on the road. ?The series now shifts to Savannah, where it becomes a best-of-three. ?Oh, and the Gnats are 50-22 at home this year.

The first star of this one: Yohan Almonte. ?Working in relief of starter Gonzalez Germen who fought through three innings, Almonte came in and threw five scoreless innings. ?If the Greensboro stadium gun was accurate, Almonte was sitting at 90 mph. ?He also did a really nice job with his slider at the bottom of the zone and out of the zone.

Game 1- @ Jamestown Jammers 7, Brooklyn Cyclones 6

The Brooklyn Cyclones fell to the Jamestown Jammers 7-6, in the opening game of their best-of-three playoff series.? The Cyclones now have thier backs against the wall, as they need to win the next two games of the series, to stave of elimination in the NYPL semifinal series.?

The Cyclones jumped out to an early one-run lead, as Darrell Ceciliani (2-5, SB) singled, stole 2nd, then scored on a Jeff Flagg (3-5, 3B, 3RBI) triple in the 1st.? It would be the only lead of the game for the Cyclones, as Jamestown scored a run in the second, four in the third, and another in the fourth to?take a 6-1 lead and chase?Brooklyn starter, Yohan Almonte (4 IP, 5 hits, 6 runs, 5 er, 3 bb, 3 K).? Almonte, the NYPL ERA leader, was just not his normal self, as his control was not there.? He walked 3 and delivered a wild pitch in his 4 innings of work.? During the season Almonte only walked 15 batters in his 89 2/3 innings of work.?

SS-A: @ Hudson Valley Renegades 8, Brooklyn Cyclones 2

After a six-run first inning, off of?Cyclones starter Yohan Almonte?(4 IP, 7 hits, 6 runs, 5 er, 1 bb, 2K), the Hudson Valley Renegades cruised to a 8-2 victory over Brooklyn (40-21).? This was a rare tough start for Almonte (7-4, 2.23 ERA), who?had been?dominant over his previous 4 starts: 29 IP, 15 hits, 1 er, 4 bb, 21K.?

The Cyclones offense was stymied by Renegades pitching to the tune of 2 runs, 3 hits, and 15 strikeouts.? All 3 hits came in the fourth inning, where the Cyclones were able to score their only 2 runs.? Also in the inning was the ejection of Brooklyn manager Wally Backman.? Funny that Backman was ejected in the only positive inning for his team.? Cory Vaughn had the toughest time at the plate, going 0-4 with 4 ks.?

SS-A:? AL All-Stars 4, NL All-Stars 3

The Brooklyn Cyclones were well represented in the NYPL All-Star game.? Darrell Ceciliani (0-1, BB) started in CF and hit leadoff, Cory Vaughn (1-2, run, SB) started in RF and hit 3rd, and Joe Bonfe (0-2) started at 3B hitting 7th.? Jeff Flagg (0-2) entered the game as the backup 1B.

On the mound Yohan Almonte was the starting pitcher for the NL team, delivering a flawless frame.? The most impressive performance by a Cyclone belonged to Angel Cuan.? Cuan came on in the fourth inning, and struck out all three batters to face him.? Unfortunately Ryan Fraser did not fair as well.? Fraser came in the bottom of the eighth inning, with runners on first and third and one out.? He allowed the tying run to score on a sacrifice fly, and the go-ahead run to score on a single.? Fraser was charged with a blown save.
