2B Josh Satin delivered a two-RBI double in the eighth inning to help the Cyclones roll past Mahoning Valley 4-2 on Sunday night. 1B Ike Davis drilled an opposite-field single past a diving shortstop to help set up Satin's game-winning hit. The double by Davis also extended his hitting streak to 11 games, one for each game in which he has played.
SS Reese Havens continued to swing a hot bat as the team's DH, collecting his third multi-hit game in his last four games with a 2-for-4 effort. LF Sean Ratliff hit his first professional home run in the seventh inning, a mammoth shot that sailed into the right field bleachers. RF John Servidio smacked a double to right-center field in the fifth inning and later scored on an RBI groundout by C Cesar Cordido. CF Kirk Nieuwenhuis and 3B Eric Campbell also singled for the Cyclones.
RHP Brad Holt (pictured, by George Napolitano) made his fourth start of the season for Brooklyn, working five innings and allowing three hits, two runs, and striking out a season-high seven batters. RHP Wendy Rosa relieved Holt and threw two scoreless innings, giving up two hits with three strikeouts. RHP Brandon Moore picked up his second win of the season, pitching a perfect inning of relief with one strikeout. And RHP Yury Santana got his league-leading sixth save of the year, retiring the side in order in the top of the ninth.
The Cyclones wrap up their series against Mahoning Valley on Monday at 12:00 pm, when it will be Camp Day at KeySpan Park. Monday's NOON start will be the only day game of the summer in Brooklyn, so if you need another day to recover from Fourth of July weekend, have any extra sick days, or just want to get out of the office, there are still great seats available!
