NEWS & NOTES

  • Yoel Romero’s walk-off home run was the Cyclones’ first in almost two full seasons. Brooklyn’s last game-ending tater came on August 31, 2017, when Walter Rasquin blasted a solo home run to give Brooklyn a 3-2 win over Lowell in eight innings and complete a doubleheader sweep.
  • ·        Brooklyn celebrated its fourth walk-off win of the season, three of which have come in the last two weeks. Brooklyn is also now 6-3 in extra innings.

  •          The Cyclones once again own sole possession of first place in the Wild Card, a half-game above Staten Island and Aberdeen and one game over Batavia.
