Yankees 6
Cyclones 4

Aug. 6 at MCU Park

One really bad inning is the story of this loss.

The Cyclones had a 2–1 lead, thanks to Travis Taijeron’s RBI single in the second.

But in the fifth inning, the wheels came off the bus for starter Jeffrey Walters — all with two outs.

Walters yielded three singles in a row before being replaced by Ernesto Yanez, who promptly gave up a two-run triple and an RBI double.

The Clones got two runs back in the seventh on Brian Harrison’s homer, but it was too little, too late.

The Cyclones return home against the hated Staten Island Yankees at MCU Park [1904 Surf Ave. at W. 17th Street in Coney Island, (718) 449-8497] on Monday night at 7 pm. For info, visit www.brooklyncyclones.com.
