VAUGHN SEALS THE WIN WITH WALKOFF HIT

Box Score

Cory Vaughn's ninth-inning hit hit sealed a 4-3 victory over the Lowell Spinners on Thursday afternoon at MCU Park, propelling the Cyclones to their first walk-off win of the season, and giving the team a three-game sweep of the Spinners. Brooklyn has now won nine straight home games, is 15-2 at MCU Park this season, and sits in first place in the McNamara Division with a 23-11 overall record.  

The Cyclones struggled to score before the ninth inning, leaving nine men on base, but CF Darrell Ceciliani doubled to left-centerfield with one out to start a last-inning rally.  One batter later, Vaughn singled to right field and Ceciliani raced around third base with the winning run.  Ceciliani actually fell down between third base and home plate during the play, but scrambled to his feet and slid headfirst into home plate to give Brooklyh the walk-off win (pictured, by George Napolitano).  Vaughn finished the game 4-for-5 with a double and two RBI and Ceciliani notched two doubles and scored three runs. 

RHP A.J. Pinera allowed three runs on four hits in 4.0 innings, before being relieved by RHP Samuel Taveras, who surrendered three hits in a third of an inning.  LHP Adam Kolarek then relieved Taveras and allowed just one hit over 1.2 scoreless innings. LHP Wes Wrenn preserved a 3-3 tie by retiring six straight batters over the seventh and eighth innings. RHP Johan Figuereo worked in and out of trouble in the top of the ninth inning, inducing an inning-ending double-play with the bases loaded to earn his third win of the year.

The Cyclones return to MCU Park on Friday, as they take on the rival Staten Island Yankees on FDNY Night.  The team will be wearing special FDNY-themed jerseys which will be auctioned off throughout the game, and the first 2,500 fans in attendance will receive a Fireman Sandy bobblehead.  In addition, a spectacular fireworks show will follow Friday night's game.

There's something for everyone at every Cyclones game -- free t-shirts, free jerseys, bobbleheads, fireworks, free food, and more!
