The Brooklyn Cyclones (30-17) won a second straight game over the Batavia Muckdogs (22-25) on Wednesday night, by a score of 6-4. The win keeps the first-place Cyclones lead in the McNamara Division at four games, and keeps Brooklyn tied with Mahoning Valley for the best record in the New York-Penn League.
On Wednesday, starting pitcher darin Gorski earned his second win with 6.0 innings, in which he allowed five hits, two runs, and four walks, while striking out two.
Brooklyn's offense continued its surge with six runs on eight hits, and multi-hit performances by Justin Garber (2-for-5), Sam Honeck (2-for-5), and Nick Santomauro (2-for-2). Jake Eigsti and Luis Rivera each added one hit, as well. Alex Gregory drove in two runs for the Cyclones, without a hit. Santomauro (pictured, by George Napolitano) and Honeck each doubled in the game.
Brandon Sage worked the seventh and eighth innings for the hold, and Michael Powers notched his league-leading 10th save with a scoreless ninth.
The Cyclones return home on Friday, August 7th to host the Jamestown Jammers at KeySpan Park. That night the Cyclones will celebrate EMS and Civil Servant Night, presented by Municipal Credit Union. The first 2,500 fans in attendance will also receive a commemorative EMS T-Shirt presented by Midwood Ambulance. In addition, all fans in attendance will enjoy a post-game Fireworks show.
