July 16 at MCU Park
The Cyclones winning streak continued Saturday with a solid 5-4 win over the Lowell Spinners — but it was a painful victory for all involved.
Brooklyn suffered an early 4-0 deficit as Cyclones pitcher Jeffrey Walters allowed four singles and a double before being yanked off the mound at the top of the second.
The Clones split the difference in the next frame, but not without a few sacrifices: Richard Lucas and Brian Harrison both plated after being hit by pitches.
An impressive showing inside the batter’s box evened everything out at the bottom of the fourth: Nelfi Zapata doubled and Daniel Muno hammered out a triple — bringing home both Zapata and Chase Greene, who walked earlier in the set.
Zapata doubled again in the sixth, earning the winning run as Cole Frenzel smacked a ground ball to left field.
