June 28 at Aberdeen

In a pitcher’s duel, the Cyclones clawed their way to take the three-game series from the Ironbirds on the road.

The Clones gave up only five hits and struck out six, thanks to pitching from southpaws Carlos Vasquez and Orlando Tovar, who each struck out two.

The Cyclones scored the only run of the game in the second inning on doubles by Richard Lucas and Charles Thurber.

The only threat of the night came in the eighth, but pitcher Hunter Carnavale induced a grounder for an inning-ending double play.

The Cyclones return home vs. the Hudson Valley Renegades at MCU Park [1904 Surf Ave. at W. 17th Street in Coney Island, (718) 449-8497] on June 29, 7 pm. For info, visit
