[Photos] Yankees Playoff Dreams Continue To Slip Away, Fall to Cyclones In Extras

Brooklyn, NY- The Staten Island Yankees rolled into Brooklyn to take on the Cyclones in one of the last games of the season on Wednesday night. The Yankees had hoped to gain some ground in the Wild Card race and increase their slim fal ball hopes. However the Yankees would lose in extras, three to two.

The Yankees did manage to put up a big fight for the first few innings against the Cyclones. Staten Island managed to strike first in the Top of the First with Devyn Bolasky scoring on a sacrifice fly. That small lead would hold until the Bottom of the Third when Brooklyn would tack on their own run to knot the score at one each.

Brooklyn would go up two to one in the Bottom of the Sixth after managing to plate a run on a fielders choice. Staten Island did respond though to the Brooklyn run and plated their own in the Top of the Seventh. The run scored thanks to three straight wild pitches by Brooklyn pitcher Scarlyn Reyes.

With the game all knotted at two we would need extras to find the winner. Brooklyn would score the winning run in the Bottom of the Eleventh in a very strange way. Staten Island’s Matt Wotherspoon hit a batter to send in the winning run and give Brooklyn a three to two win over the Yankees.

With the loss In Brooklyn the Yankees will head home on Thursday to take on the Vermont Lake Monsters. The Yankees are now four and a half games behind the Cyclones for the Wild Card and are just one game away from being eliminated entirely from the Wild Card standings.
