The Cyclones built upon the shutout behind Daisuke Matsuzaka on Thursday night with yet another shutout, this time against the ValleyCats.
Right-hander Matires Arias took the mound for the Cyclones and got himself in a jam early in the first with the bases load, but came out of it unscathed, then dominated through five innings.
The Cyclones got on the board in the second inning, which started with consecutive singles by Jhoan Urena and Tomas Nido, A sacrifice fly from Tyler Moore scored the first run while an error and hits from Michael Bernal and Tucker Tharp allowed two more runs to cross the plate.
The Cyclone exploded for four more runs in the fifth, with hits coming from Michael Conforto, Pedro Perez, Urena, Tharp, and few more ValleyCat errors.
Arias threw more than 100 pitches before giving the ball up to Gaither Bumgardner and Cameron Griffin, who maintained the shutout.
