CYCLONES ROLL PAST YANKEES

The Cyclones jumped on the Yankees early and escaped a late-inning scare, winning 6-5 on Friday night in front of 8,910 fans at KeySpan Park.  Brooklyn was able to get a hit from every starter, as they climbed to within four games of the first-place Yankees in the McNamara Division.  The Cyclones are now 5-2 this season against Staten Island.

Every starter collected a hit for the Cyclones, with C Jordan Abruzzo, RF John Servidio (pictured, by George Napolitano), and SS Matt Smith leading the way with multi-hit games, each notching two hits apiece.  Brooklyn got on the board early, as 2B J.R. Voyles drilled a two-run home run to left field in the bottom half of the first inning, his second in as many days.  DH Jose Jimenez continued his hot start after coming over from Savannah, hitting a solo home run to lead off the second inning.  CF Kirk Nieuwenhuis doubled in the fourth and later scored on a sacrifice fly by Servidio, who also hit an RBI single in the sixth.  Every other position player had at least a single in a 12-hit effort.       

RHP Jenry Mejia made his fourth start for Brooklyn.  Mejia worked five innings, allowing a run on three hits while walking two and striking out four.  LHP Roy Merritt relieved Mejia, and pitched two scoreless innings, allowing a hit with two walks and three strikeouts.  It was Merritt's 12th appearance of the season, and he has only allowed a run two times.  RHP Yury Santana threw a perfect eighth with two strikeouts, and RHP Brandon Moore recorded an out in the ninth before RHP Stephen Clyne picked up his fifth save of the year by striking out the last two batters he faced to end the game.

The Cyclones travel to Staten Island on Saturday before returning home to face the Yankees on Sunday, July 27 at 5 pm.  The first 1,250 kids (14 and under) will receive a mini Sandy the Seagull bobblehead.  It will also be Autism Awareness Night, Grandparents Day, season ticket holders will receive a team photo, kids will have the opportunity to run the bases after the game, and it will also be "the Cyclones Love Park Slope Night" at KeySpan Park.
