The Yankees got a run back in the bottom of the inning on a homer by Dante Bichette, the son of the former major leaguer.

The Cyclones got two more in the fifth on Nelfi Zapata’s two-run blast.

Brandon Brown drove in a run in the seventh, and the Cyclones added four more in the ninth, the big blow was Brian Harrison’s three-run blast.

The Clones slammed Yankee pitchers for 14 hits, and Harrison had four RBIs.
