A rare come-from-behind victory gave the league-leading Cyclones their third win in a row, and increased their first-place lead to five games.
But this one wasn’t easy. The Ironbirds got on the board first, but the Cyclones tied the score in the third on Rylan Sandoval’s single, which plated Luis Nieves, who had tripled.
And after the Ironbirds took the lead again, the Clones tied the score in the seventh on an error.
The Cyclones finally broke it open in the ninth, with two runs. The rally started with consecutive singles by Joe Bonfe, Brian Harrison and Jeff Flagg. After a strikeout, Nieves bunted home the second run on a squeeze.
Darrell Ceciliani — who is trying to become the first Cyclone to hit .400 — went 1-for-4, dropping his average to .386.
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.brookl
