Cyclones 7

Yankees 6

Thursday, Aug. 19 at Staten Island

The Cyclones turned what would have been one of the ugliest losses of the season into a stirring come-from-behind victory to put the Staten Island Yankees in their place — which is last, by the way.

The Clones got on the board with a four-run first inning, capped with Joe Bonfe’s RBI single and J.B. Brown’s monstrous two-run dinger.

But in the third, the Cyclones committed three ugly errors, and generally sharp starter A.J. Pinera gave up three ill-timed bleeders, and the Yankees took a 5–4 lead.

But in the seventh, the Clones took the lead with two runs, thanks to league-leading hitter Darrell Ceciliani’s RBI double followed by new shortstop Wilfredo Tovar’s perfectly placed RBI single.

Another run scored in the ninth on Bonfe’s single — and it was a good thing, because the Yankees led off the ninth with a homer, but failed to do any other damage.

The Cyclones’ first-place lead is now nine-and-a-half games.
