Wednesday, July 28 at Aberdeen
The mid-season day off on Tuesday didn’t affect Cyclone bats, as the team socked the second-place Ironbirds with 12 hits — seven of them coming from the first five guys in the powerful Clone lineup.
Darrell Ceciliani — who is trying to become the first Cyclone to hit .400 — went 2-for-5 with another triple, while Joe Bonfe, who is no slouch at .357, knocked in three runs.
The Cyclones took a 2-0 lead in the first on a Bonfe double.
Aberdeen did get two runs off starter A.J. Pinera in the fourth, but that was all the offense that the Ironbirds would muster, and Wes Wrenn would get his third win of the season by blanking Aberdeen for the middle four innings, giving up just two hits.
The Cyclones blew the game open in the fifth with two runs, one on Jeff Flagg’s 12th double of the year and then a subsequent single by Bonfe.
The next Cyclones home game is Saturday night at 6 pm against the Yankees at MCU Park [1904 Surf Ave. at W. 19th Street in Coney Island, (718) 449-8497]. For info, visit www.brooklyncyclones.com.
