Friday, July 30 at Aberdeen
Great pitching and a pummeling offensive machine was the secret to this win.
Actually, the key was the fifth inning, when the Cyclones put up seven runs. The big blows were triples by William Cherry and Darrell Ceciliani (his ninth), a double by Jeff Flagg (his 13th of the season) and a homer by Brian Harrison (his fifth).
Rylan Sandoval had homered to start the game, hitting his eighth.
Starter Yohan Almonte gave up only three hits in his seven innings, yielding just one unearned run. The bullpen was a bit leaky, but the Aberdeen runs came too late.
Darrell Ceciliani — who is trying to become the first Cyclone to hit .400 — went 2-for-4, raising his average to .389.
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 www.brooklyncyclones.com.
