Staten Island 2

Cyclones 1

July 9 on Staten Island

Bolstered by top-of-the-rotation Met import Jason Vargas, the Cyclones held the vaunted Yankee offense at bay for the second night in a row — but this time couldn’t get the win.

It was Vargas’s turn last night on the Rock, and the Met hurler, making a rehab start, delivered six innings of one-hit ball, striking out nine, and leaving the mound with a 1–0 lead.

But Cyclone reliever Joshua Walker couldn’t hold it, and our boys fell when he gave up two solo homers in the eighth.

Vargas’s start followed Noah Syndergaard’s gem Sunday at Coney Island, but both pitchers won’t be at the top of the rotation for long, as they will most likely be sent down to the Mets around the Major League’s All-Star break.

The Clones scored their lone run in the fourth when Anthony Dirocie doubled in Chase Chambers, who had singled, moved to second on a base hit and got to third on a ground out.

Brooklyn is now just hanging on to its second place spot, with an even 12–12 record.

The Cyclones have a rare night off tonight, and head to Aberdeen to take on the Ironbirds on Wednesday.
