Cyclones 9
Muckdogs 2

Aug. 9 at Batavia

The Cyclones began a critical road trip with a resounding win over the pesky Muckdogs that included a grand slam by hot-hitting Travis Taijeron.

The pride of Brooklyn got on the board first, with four runs in the second. After three walks, Ismael Tijerina knocked in two with a single. Then Javier Rodriguez knocked in two more with his 18th double of the year.

The Muckdogs did get two in the eighth to cut the score to 4–2, but the Cyclones went nuts in the ninth, putting up a five spot and batting around.

Daniel Muno led off with a double and later scored on Rodriguez’s RBI single. After an error loaded the bases, Taijeron hit the grand slam that served notice that these Cyclones are getting that last playoff spot.

Still, the Clones remain 1-1/2 games back for the wild card berth.

The Cyclones don’t return home to MCU Park [1904 Surf Ave. at W. 17th Street in Coney Island, (718) 449-8497] until Aug. 17 at 7 pm. For info, visit
