I should be asleep, but I wanted to say something quick:

A buddy of mine wanted a full report on Brandon Nimmo. So I'll give him this: Kid could barely get the ball out of the infield. But he drove in a run in the fourth on an infield hit, and he struck out looking immediately after hitting coach Bobby Malek was ejected, so home plate ump Tim Haromada might have been squeezing him.

But Kevin Plawecki, the catcher they drafted in the first round this year whose scouting report made him sound eerily like a Mike Nickeas clone, hit a bomb to tie the game in the ninth inning. (So much for the Nickeas label.) For his efforts, he got hit in the hand in the eleventh. But it turned into the winning run as Jayce Boyd drove home pinch runner Jonathan Clark to win the game for the Brooklyn Cyclones over the Hudson Valley Renegades.

Pictures after the jump:

The Cyclones bench reacts to Plawecki's game tying HR in the ninth.

Not bad for the guy that just got there.

Victory dance for the first place Cyclones after Jayce Boyd's sac fly.

And fireworks to boot. What more can you ask for?
