Editor’s note: The Brooklyn Paper’s esteemed editor in chief Vince DiMiceli, who usually edits the world’s best Cyclones coverage, is on vacation, and deputy editor Nathan Tempey knows only slightly more than nothing about America’s pastime. Sure, he can tell a home run when he sees one, but mention a passed ball or a can of corn to him and you’ll get a blank stare. So bear with us as we weather this trying time, and let Tempey know what he is getting wrong in the comments.

Aberdeen 18

Cyclones 2

July 5 at MCU Park

No win for you!

That was the message the Aberdeen Ironbirds sent loud and dismayingly clear to the Cyclones at Saturday’s sold-out “Salute to Seinfeld Night” game, a bloodbath that marked the Clones’ fifth straight loss.

Pitching is almost never the problem for the Cyclones, but last night proved it can be. Casey Meisner made it through three and a third innings and gave up nine hits and a whopping nine runs. Juan Urbina came in to relieve Meisner in the fourth, and the Ironbirds promptly tacked on seven runs that inning, and another five in the fifth.

Batting has been a persistent weakness of the Mini-Mets, and last night was no exception, as the team’s sluggers managed only seven hits. The only two Clone runs came in the fifth and sixth innings when a series of walks loaded the bases and a single by Dimas Ponce scored Jeff Diehl. The second run crossed the plate when a double by Jeff Diehl allowed Michael Katz to score.

The Cyclones also committed five errors that allowed seven unearned Ironbird goals.

The Cyclones look to avoid a sweep this afternoon in the final game of the series, a 1 pm makeup game at MCU Park.
