Cyclones 8
Spikes 4

July 23 at State College

For the third night in a row, the Cyclones packed the big bats, belting 13 hits in an eight-run barrage that buried the Spikes in their own building.

After falling behind, 1–0, the Cyclones scored two in the second on Brian Harrison’s leadoff single, an error and a Daniel Muno RBI single.

The Spikes regained the lead on a two-run blast in the fourth off starter Marcos Camarena, but the Clones tied it in the fifth on a Harrison single, but what could have been a big rally fizzled when Travis Taijeron struck out and Xorge Carrillo flied out with first and third.

The Clones busted the game open in the seventh, scoring five runs. After two leadoff walks, Charlie Thurber singled to load the bases. Then Harrison knocked in one with a single before Taijeron cleared the bases with a triple. He later scored on Carrillo’s sacrifice fly.

Muno was 3-for-5 on the night, raising his average to .372, but the big blows came from Harrison (3-for-5, 2 RBIs).

With this 8–4 win, the Clones have scored 32 runs in three games.

The Cyclones are home vs. Connecticut Tigers at MCU Park [1904 Surf Ave. at W. 17th Street in Coney Island, (718) 449-8497] on July 27 at 7 pm. For info, visit www.brooklyncyclones.com.
