SI Yanks open season in BrooklynBy
Last night, I journeyed south from my Park Slope enclave to Coney Island to catch the home opener of the Brooklyn Cyclones with fellow blogger Emma Span. The Cyclones, the Mets’ affiliate, faced the Staten Island Yankees. The Yanks strung together a bunch of hits and baserunners early on but couldn’t capitalize. Nick Chigges relieved Gabriel Medina after the demoted righty gave the Yanks 5 solid innings. Chigges promptly gave up a three-run home run to Jeffrey Voyles. Chigges walked away from the game with a loss. For more on this game and some pitchers, check out Emma’s post on Eephus Pitch .
