The Cyclones stretched their winning streak to eight games with a 3-1 win against Hudson Valley on Sunday night. A crowd of 8,016 fans at KeySpan Park saw Brooklyn (42-28) move to within a half-game of Jamestown (42-27) for the NYPL Wild Card.
C Jordan Abruzzo got the Cyclones on the board in the bottom of the fourth with an opposite-field home run to left field. Abruzzo (pictured, by George Napolitano) then added his second home run of the game and sixth of the season in the eighth inning from the right side. It marked the first time in club history a member of the Cyclones homered from both sides of the plate in the same game. 1B Ike Davis extended his hitting streak to nine games with a 2-for-4 effort, and 2B Josh Satin went 2-for-3, including a double in the fifth inning. 3B Juan Lagares played stellar defense and added a double, while DH Dock Doyle got his first hit of the season for the Cyclones.
Brooklyn is now three games behind Staten Island in the McNamara Division, with six games left to play. The Cyclones travel to Aberdeen before returning home on September 4th at 7 pm to face the Renegades again. On Thursday, fans will receive a Cyclones' Team Photo.
