Cyclones 1
Spinners 3

Sunday, Aug. 30 at Lowell

It started off so well: a leadoff double by Jordany Valdespin and an RBI single by Luis Rivera — but that lone run was all the Cyclones could manage against the Lowell Spinners in a key, late-season game.

Starter Brandon Moore scattered nine hits in six innings, giving up only one earned run and dropping his ERA to 2.10. But after he gave way to Brandon Sage, the Spinners scored twice in the eighth to put this one away.

Coupled with a win by the hated Staten Island Yankees, the Cyclones’ first place lead was trimmed to just one-and-a-half games with just eight to play.

Reasonable discourse

Harvey Poris from Brooklyn Heights says:
Its all about the schedule! Cyclones enjoyed the easy schedule in the season's beginning when they went 16-2. Unfortunately, Yanks have it now with 5 more games against Vermont while Cyclones have 5 with tough Lowell. It doesn't look good for Brooklyn.
