Two-out runs batted in and strong pitching from starter Albert Baldonado and the Cyclones bullpen earned the Brooklyn its fourth-straight win.
The Clones scored first in the third when Amed Rosario’s two-out double brought home John Mora, who singled moments before.
In the fourth, Michael Conforto was hit by a pitch and, two outs later, stole second. Tyler Moore than doubled him home, giving the Clones a two-run cusion.
Baldanado cruised through five innings, allowing just one hit and striking out seven.
A passed ball on a pitch by Carlos Valdez helped the only Lake Monster run to cross the plate, and All-Star closer Shane Bay closed things out in the ninth, earning his 13th save.
The Cyclones take on the Lake Monster one last time on Sunday before the All-Star game at MCU Park.
