Short Season Teams Thursday: Cyclones Playoff Push. Domingo Tapia’s Excellence

SSA: @ Brooklyn Cyclones 5, Jamestown Jammers (FLA) 2 

1B Cole Frenzel (.250/.346/.328), this year’s seventh round  pick out of Arizona was 3-4 with a double and an RBI.  After a slow start to his professional career and a .215/.315/.291 line in 20 games in July, Frenzel is rolling along at .324/.409/.405 in August.  He’s not hitting for much power yet, but at least he’s hitting for average.

Rain held Eduardo Aldama’s night to 2.2 so the bullpen had to pick up the slack.  Tyler Pill,  this year’s fourth-round pick out of Cal State Fullerton, tossed a scoreless inning with two strikeouts.

The Cyclones are now tied for the wild card lead (of course) and are three games out of first.
