The Brooklyn Cyclones (21-10) were topped by the Vermont Lake Monsters (16-14) on Monday Night, by a score of 8-2.
RHP Brandon Moore (4-1) took his first loss of the season, surrendering six runs on six hits, although only two of the runs were earned. Moore (pictured, by George Napolitano) walked one and struck out two in 4.0 innings of work. His ERA on the season now stands at 1.32, good for fifth-best in the New York-Penn League.
Moore was relieved by RHP Sam Martinez and RHP Mike Lynn, who each allowed one earned run in 2.0 innings of work.
Brooklyn's offense mustered just two runs on five hits, with three of those hits coming from LF Nick Santomauro. The red-hot Santomauro has six hits in his last seven at-bats. C Ralph Henriquez and 1B Sam Honeck also contributed hits, and CF Justin Garber chipped in with an RBI.
The Cyclones return to KeySpan Park on Thursday, July 23rd to take on the rival Staten Island Yankees. The first 2,500 fans in attendance receive a free lunch box, courtesy of Verizon. In addition, the Cyclones will be honoring New York's Finest on NYPD night, presented by Municipal Credit Union.
