Cyclones 2

Aberdeen 1

June 22 at Aberdeen

Michael Bernal hit a go-ahead home run in the fourth inning and the stingy Cyclone pitching staff gave up just one run, earning the sweep against the Ironbirds.

Center fielder Tucker Tharp, who went three-for-four, got the game going in the first a leadoff single and later scored on a double play ball Tomas Nido.

Starter Carlos Valdez threw five solid innings, giving up just one run in the third. Gaither “Who’s a” Bumgardner then shut the birds down over the next four innings, giving up just one hit while striking out five to earn the save.

This win is the sixth straight for the first-place Cyclones which lead the New York-Penn League with a record of 8–2.

The Clones return home to MCU Park tonight against the Hudson Valley Renegades. Game time is 7 pm.
