Cyclones 3

Yankees 1

Monday, July 26 at Staten Island

The Cyclones reasserted their superiority over their cross-bay rival, the Staten Island Yankees, with some patient hitting and dominant pitching.

The ’Clones offense took off in the second with a two-out rally. Shortstop Rylan Sandoval singled in a run, after which things unraveled for Staten Island starter Shane Greene. League-leading hitter Darrell Ceciliani and Cory Vaughn then walked, bringing home Brooklyn’s second run.

And that was all lefty Angel Cuan needed, throwing six shutout innings, improving his record to 4-0 and bringing his ERA down to a miniscule 1.50.

The Yankees didn’t go easily, tagging reliever Hamilton Bennett for a run in the eighth. But with the bases loaded Brooklyn closer Ryan Fraser — who went on to pick up his sixth save of the season — struck out Francisco Arcia, shutting the door on the Yankee rally.

For insurance, the Cyclones scored again in the ninth on an RBI-single from Ceciliani.

Brooklyn now holds a four-game lead over Aberdeen, who they’ll face in three-game set starting on Wednesday in the Old Line State.

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
