The Clones took the second game in a row from the Scrappers, thanks to a two-out double by slugger Richard Lucas and a sixth inning groundout.
But the story here was Cyclone pitching, which limited the Scrappers to just two hits on the night.
Starter Randy Fontanez gave up both in his four innings, but after that, the bullpen tandem of Steve Winnick and Todd Weldon shut down the Scrappers, giving up no hits and striking out seven in five innings.
The win moved the Cyclones into a tie for the league’s lone wild-card berth.
The Cyclones return home to MCU Park [1904 Surf Ave. at W. 17th Street in Coney Island, (718) 449-8497] on Aug. 17 at 7 pm. For info, visit www.brooklyncyclones.com.
