2-FOR-1: CYCLONES TAKE TWO FROM MONSTERS

Box Score

The Brooklyn Cyclones won two games on Tuesday, finishing a suspended game to win by a score of 8-7, before winning a thrilling second game with a walk-off home run.

In the first game, the Cyclones resumed a 12-inning game in which play had been suspended on August 21st in Vermont due to rain.  Brooklyn had an 8-7 lead, and Vermont had runners on first and second, and one out. Ryan Fraser got two quick outs -- a strikeout and a fly ball -- to put the game in the books and seal the long-awaited victory.

In the second game of the day, a seven-inning contest, 1B Jeff Flagg led the Cyclones to a 6-4 walk-off victory with five RBI on the day, including a monster three-run home run to win the game.  The Cyclones trailed in the bottom of the seventh inning by the score of 4-3, but 2B J.B. Brown worked a one-out walk, and CF Cory Vaughn reached on a broken-bat fielder's choice before Flagg stepped to the plate and delivered the big blow.  Tuesday night was the third time this season Brooklyn has hit a walk-off home run to win the game. 
 
The Cyclones tallied eight hits against Vermont --- three for extra-bases. Brown went 1-for-2 with two runs scored.  C Juan Centeno had two hits and is now hitting .600 (15-for-25) at MCU Park this season. Flagg finished the game with two hits and five RBI --- the most RBI by a Cyclone since 3B Brian Harrison had six on July 15th against Mahoning Valley.

Flagg and Vaughn are also now tied for the most RBI by a Brooklyn player in a single season, with 50 RBI each.  The previous record was 46.

RHP A.J. Pinera went five innings, yielding three earned runs while striking out six batters. Pinera entered the game with the third best ERA in the league (2.10), and has yet to allow four earned runs in a start. Southpaw Adam Kolarek relieved Pinera and shut down Vermont over two hitless innings. Kolarek earned the win and now owns a 1.28 ERA at home this season.

The Cyclones and Lake Monsters will play a doubleheader on Wednesday September 1st, with the first game starting at 6pm.  Both games will be seven-inning contests, and the MCU Park gates will open at 5:30pm. The night will feature the Garage Sale Giveaway, and the first 2,500 fans will receive surprise promotional items from the season.  September 1st will also be Weiner Wednesday with 41 hot dogs throughout the night
