Brooklyn 8, Vermont 1

BURLINGTON, VT --- Ezequiel Carrera went 3-for-4 with three runs and three RBI, while Jason Jacobs was 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBI to lead the Brooklyn Cyclones to an 8-1 victory over the Vermont Lake Monsters in New York-Penn League action Sunday evening at historic Centennial Field.

Cyclone starter Dylan Owen outdueled Vermont’s Adrian Alaniz in the battle between two of the top starting pitchers in the league as Owen (8-1) allowed just one run on five hits over five innings to keep his league-leading ERA at 1.82 overall. Alaniz (7-2) gave up three runs on four hits over five innings with six strikeouts as his ERA rose from 1.94 to 2.28 for the season.

The Lake Monsters got on the board first as Boomer Whiting led off the bottom of the first inning with a double down the leftfield line and scored when Dan Lyons followed with an RBI single to centerfield.

The Cyclones tied the game in the third  when Jake Eigsti led off with a single, stole second, moved to third on a groundout and scored on a two-out RBI single from Carrera that Vermont shortstop Dan Lyons was able to knock down, but was unable to throw out Carrera at first base.

Jacobs followed with a two-run homer to leftfield on a 3-1 pitch from Alaniz for his 10th home run of the season and tying for the league lead. The Cyclones added an unearned run in the sixth, then added two runs in the eighth off reliever Edulin Abreu and two more runs in the ninth off Alberto Tavarez.

The Lake Monsters got its second run of the game in the bottom of the ninth inning on three straight two-out walks and run was forced home when Anthony Benner was hit by a pitch.

The Lake Monsters have now lost four of the first five games on the homestand and are just 3-8 since the New York-Penn League All-Star Break
