The Brooklyn Cyclones lost again on Monday, July 9, as the Jamestown Jammers completed a sweep at MCU Park. In the 5-2 loss, it was the Cyclone bullpen that proved to be shaky.

Hansel Robels, the Cyclone starting pitcher went 5.1 innings, allowing one run off of three hits with one walk and seven strikeouts.

The Cyclones scored two runs in the bottom of the sixth after Jamestown reliever Brian Ellington walked second baseman Juan Gamboa. Brandon Nimmo, center fielder, hit a single up the middle which was followed by a wild pitch to Phillip Evans moving the runners into scoring position. Evans hit a single scoring both Gamboa and Nimmo allowing the Cyclones to take the lead over the Jammers.

In the top of the eighth, however, Jamestown capitalized on a hit batsman from reliever Matt Bowman with three consecutive hits scoring two runs. Tim Peterson came in for the Cyclones in the ninth only to give up two insurance runs for the out-of town team.

Jamestown reliever Brian Ellington earned the win, throwing two innings and allowing two earned runs with three strikeouts.

The Cyclones also lost to the Jammers 5-2 on Monday and 6-3 on Sunday. The team is on a three game slide since defeating the Williamsport Crosscutters in a dramatic extra inning, series finale 7-6 win on Friday, July 6. The Cyclones lost game two of the Crosscutters series on Thursday 5-4, but won the first game on Wednesday, July 4 by a score of 9-5 thanks to home runs by Stefan Sabol and Brandon Nimmo.

The Cyclones will be heading on the road to face the Connecticut Tigers and the State College Spikes in separate three-game series.
