Brooklyn's long-ball dynamic duo struck again on Monday, as Cory Vaughn and Rylan Sandoval (pictured, by George Napolitano) each hit home runs in the same game for the fourth time this season. Brooklyn, however, lost to Tri-City by a score of 7-4 to end a six-game win streak.
All four of Brooklyn's runs on Monday came via long ball. Sandoval blasted a solo home run in the first inning, and Vaughn belted his league-leading ninth home run -- a two-run shot -- in the third inning. 1B Jeff Flagg added another solo shot in the ninth inning, but those runs were not enough.
Vaughn, Joe Bonfe, and Juan Centeno notched two hits each, while Sandoval and Flagg's home runs were their only hits of the game. 2B J.B. Brown also added a hit, extending his hitting streak to 11 games, the longest such streak in the leaghue this season.
The Cyclones could not hold the two leads they had in the game. RHP Yohan Almonte surrendered three runs on seven hits, although none of the runs were earned. Almonte tossed five innings, and allowed seven hits, while striking out five. LHP Hamilton Bennet struck out the first two batters he faced, but then ran into trouble. Over two innings, Bennett gave up four earned runs on five hits, and took his second loss of the season.
