BROOKLYN BASHES 'BIRDS

The Cyclones reclaimed sole possession of first place in the McNamara Division, beating Aberdeen by a score of 5-2 on Monday night.  The win moves Brooklyn's record to 3-1 on the season and 2-0 at MCU Park.

Righthander Wes Wrenn (1-0) faced off against familiar adversary Tyler Sexton, who he has now pitched against in high school, college, and as a professional. Wrenn recorded the victory, pitching six innings and giving up two earned runs, on six hits.  Wrenn walked one and struck out six.  RHP Ryan Fraser relieved Wrenn in the seventh, pitching one hitless inning while striking out two in his professional debut. RHP Johan Figuereo was then called in from the bullpen and pitched the final two innings, giving up two hits.  Figuereo struck out two in the eighth and fanned the side in the ninth on his way to his second save of the season.

Brooklyn used the long ball and played "little ball" as well, earning the victory on Monday night. CF Cory Vaughn belted his first professional home run in the first inning on the first pitch he saw, becoming the first Cyclone to hit a home run this year.  In the game, Vaughn (pictured, by Mel Levine) went 2-for-3 with two RBI, three runs and a walk -- also recording his first triple of the year.  LF Will Cherry added two RBI, driving in one run on a double, and another with a suicide squeeze.  Cherry's perfectly-placed sacrifice bunt down the first base line in the sixth inning scored Vaughn from third.

CF Darrell Ceciliani again showcased his defense, making spectacular catches in both the fourth and fifth innings while recording the only other hit for the Cyclones, who scored five runs on four hits.

The Cyclones are home again on Tuesday night at 7pm for the second game of a three-game series against the Aberdeen IronBirds. That night, the first 2,500 fans in attendance will receive a "10th Season" t-shirt, presented by Saint Francis College. Tuesday night is also KRAFT Singles Ticket Night, and fans can buy one ticket and get one free when you bring your KRAFT Singles package wrapper to the ballpark.
