The Brooklyn Cyclones (25-11) completed a sweep of the Staten Island Yankees (19-17) with a 10-9 slugfest win over their cross-river rivals.
Brooklyn plated four runs in the top of the first inning to set the tone for the high-scoring game. The Cyclones notched a total of 10 hits to go with their 10 runs, and three Brooklyn players -- Dock Doyle, Sam Honeck, and Tyler Vaughn -- recorded multi-hit games.
LF Nick Santomauro continued his hot hitting by belting a solo home run in the fifth inning, his third of the season, and his second in as many games. Santomauro (pictured, by George Napolitano) has hit .471 (8-for-17) in his last five games, and raised his season average to .263.
Seven Cyclones recorded RBI in the game, and seven crossed the plate to score runs.
Brooklyn's starter, Brandon Moore, was hit hard for the first time all season, surrendering five earned runs in 4.1 innings. His ERA on the year now stands at 2.18.
The Cyclones return home on Monday, July 27th to take on division-rival Aberdeen Ironbirds on Italian Heritage Night. The team will be wearing special Italian Heritage jerseys, and the evening's entertainment will be Italian-themed. The game is presented by Local 926.
