CYCLONES SKIN 'CATS FOR 50th WIN

Box Score

The Brooklyn Cyclones (50-23) defeated Tri-City (37-35) in the first game of the last series of the regular season by a score of 5-4.  The win is Brooklyn's 50th -- only the second club in franchise history to achieve the mark (the 2001 squad had 52 wins.  If the 2010 Cyclones win the last two games of the year, they will set a new single-season mark and a new all-time best home record (30-8, also in 2001)

On Friday, Cyclones hurlers surrendered four runs on seven hits while striking out seven Valley Cats.  Starting pitcher Angel Cuan, limited to four innings of work in preparation for the Playoffs, allowed no runs on three hits while striking out three. Hamilton Bennett and his infamous mustache took the mound in the fifth inning, surrendering two runs on three hits over two innings of work. Adam Kolarek came on in the seventh inning to pitch two scoreless frames before allowing a two-run home run that pulled Tri-City to within one run.  Johan Figuereo ended the Valley Cats rally, though, getting two outs to earn his eighth save of the year.

Brooklyn bats victimized Tri-City’s pitching, scoring five runs on 10 hits with four players registering multi-hit games. 3B James Schroeder hit his first home run of the season -- a two-run bomb to left field in the fourth inning -- in a 1-for-2 effort. Cyclone newcomer ZeErika McQueen registered his first hit and first multi-hit game in a Brooklyn uniform, going 2-for-3 with one RBI and one stolen base. C Juan Centeno continued his hot hitting at home going 2-for-3 with two runs, and one RBI, including his third double in two days, bringing his average up to an impressive .372.  CF Cory Vaughn and SS Wilfredo Tovar were the third and fourth Cyclones to have multi-hit games going 2-for-3 and 2-for-4 respectively, with Vaughn notching his 43rd run of the season. RF Will Cherry rounded out the offense with a 1-for-4 effort, including one RBI.

The Cyclones take on the Valley Cats again on Saturday, and the first 2,500 fans in attendance will receive a set of Brooklyn Cyclones Fan Bands. Fans are also invited to stay after the game for a spectacular fireworks show from inside the ballpark!

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