Editor’s note: The Brooklyn Paper’s esteemed editor in chief Vince DiMiceli, who usually edits the world’s best Cyclones coverage, is on vacation, and deputy editor Nathan Tempey knows only slightly more than nothing about America’s pastime. Sure, he can tell a home run when he sees one, but mention a passed ball or a can of corn to him and you’ll get a blank stare. So bear with us as we weather this trying time, and let Tempey know what he is getting wrong in the comments.

Aberdeen 3

Cyclones 2

July 4, at MCU Park

Mets pitcher Dillon Gee dominated all six innings of his second rehab appearance at MCU Park against the Aberdeen Ironbirds, but his fellow Cyclones did not back him up.

Gee struck out 10 batters, gave up three hits and one run, and walked only one.

Josh Prevost came in to relieve Gee in the seventh but Aberdeen’s batters got the better of him. Prevost pitched two innings, striking out just one and giving up two goals.

Cyclone sluggers rallied in the top of the ninth when Jeff Diehl replaced designated hitter Tyler Moore and smashed a double that scored Jhoan Urena. This late inning wouldn’t be enough for the Cyclones to avoid dropping their fourth straight match.

The Cyclones take on the Ironbirds again tonight during the sold-out Seinfeld Night at MCU Park. Game time is 5 pm.
