Cyclones: Two out of three ain’t good when you’re a struggling team trying to get back in the playoff hunt.

Cyclones sputtering along

Cyclones: The 11–11 Cyclones can’t seem to get on a roll. For every heroic, come-from-behind win this season, there seems to be a blown save or a seven-walk inning to bring the Brooks back to earth. Here are all the game summaries since our last edition. Comment
