Yankees 8

Cyclones 7

Sunday, July 25 at MCU Park

This one was over before it really started, with the Yankees putting up five runs against usually reliable starter Chris Hilliard (5–1, 4.85 ERA) in a powerful two-out rally.

The Cyclones chipped away all night, with a Brian Harrison solo shot in the second and three more runs in the third, thanks to triples by suddenly hot J.B. Brown and league-leading hitter Darrell Ceciliani.

But the bullpen couldn’t shut down the Yankees, who got another two runs in the seventh to put this one out of reach.

A Cyclone rally in the seventh brought in three more — again, thanks to a blast by Harrison, but it was too little, too late.

Ceciliani was 3-for-3 on the night, raising his average to .390. Cory Vaughn was an uncharacteristic 0-for-5, killing more than a few rallies.

The second loss in a row to the Yankees dropped the Cyclones’ lead to just four games.

The next Cyclones home game is Saturday night at 6 pm against the Yankees at MCU Park [1904 Surf Ave. at W. 19th Street in Coney Island, (718) 449-8497]. For info, visit
