Cyclones 7
Yankees 3

Sunday, Aug. 1 at Staten Island

The Clones swept a two-game series with the demoralized Yankees in true Cyclone fashion: with great starting pitching and a shock-and-awe offensive display.

First, the pitching: Starter Angel Cuan won his fifth game against no losses — and dropped his ERA to 1.68 — by striking out 10 Yankees in just 5-2/3 innings. Yes, he was touched for a solo homer in the fourth, but all the other runs were yielded by the bullpen.

The Cyclones got on board first, on J.B. Brown’s two-RBI single in the second. Then, the Brooks put up another two-spot in the fourth on RBI singles by William Cherry and the scorching hot Rylan Sandoval. A line drive by Darrell Ceciliani would have brought in another run, but it was deflected by the pitcher.

Two errors by the humbled Yankees helped the Cyclones score two in the seventh, though singles by Sandoval and Joe Bonfe certainly helped.

Brooklyn capped the scoring with a Blake Forsythe solo shot in the eighth.

Ceciliani — who is trying to become the first Cyclone to hit .400 — went 2-for-4, raising his average to .391. Leadoff hitter Sandoval was 3-for-5 to raise his average to .333, and power hitter Cory Vaughn went 2-for-5, raising his average to .309. The first five men in the Cyclones lineup went 10-for-23.

The next Cyclones home game is tonight at 7 pm at MCU Park [1904 Surf Ave. at W. 19th Street in Coney Island, (718) 449-8497]. For info, visit www.brooklyncyclones.com.
