LATE-INNING HEROICS HELP CYCLONES PLUCK BIRDS

Box Score

The Cyclones won in dramatic fashion on Thursday night, as they beat the IronBirds by a score of 4-2 thanks to a four-hit, two-run ninth inning.The  win is Brooklyn’s third in a row, second straight over Aberdeen, and fifth overall against the IronBirds this season.  The Cyclones are now 27-13 and remain five games ahead of the Staten Island Yankees for first place in the McNamara Division.  Brooklyn and Staten Island will lock up on Saturday at MCU Park.

Brooklyn’s offense produced four runs on eight hits en route to taking the second of a three game series against Aberdeen. 1B Joe Bonfe went 2-for-3 with two runs, including a ninth-inning one-out infield single to spark the Cyclone game-winning rally.  Bonfe (pictured, by George Napolitano) eventually scored the go-ahead run in the final frame. 3B Brian Harrison, 1-for-3 with a run, followed Bonfe in the ninth with a single, and Jeff Flagg came through with a pinch-hit RBI single to drive in Bonfe.  SS Luis Nieves then perfectly executed a suicide squeeze to score Harrison with an insurance run. Nieves went 2-for-4 with one run and one RBI on the night. CF Darrell Ceciliani and 2B Rylan Sandoval each checked in with one hit apiece, and Sandoval added an RBI.

LHP Mitch Houck tossed five strong innings, allowing two runs on six hits while striking out five. LHP Adam Kolarek came in the sixth inning to pitch two scoreless innings without allowing a hit, while striking out one. Ryan Fraser then earned his first win of the season with two scoreless innings to bring his ERA to 0.47 -- best on the team.

The Cyclones return home on Sunday to face the Staten Island Yankees at 5p.m.  That day is the first Sunday Funday of the year, and fans are invited onto the field before the game to have a catch, and after the game to run the bases.Line up at sections 19 and 20, and a Cyclones representative will usher you onto the field, where you can play catch.
