Thanks to a great pitching performance by Brad Holt, and timely hitting, the Cyclones snapped a five-game losing streak to shut out the Spikes 2-0. The win improves their record to 12-14.
Holt (2-2) made his fifth start of the season and was dominant, pitching seven scoreless innings, and striking out 10 batters. RHP Yury Santana pitched a scoreless eighth innings. RHP Stephen Clyne made his season debut and picked up his first save of the year.
OF Angel Pagan made his second rehab start, went 1-for-4 and stole another base (Pagan leads the Cyclones with 32 swipes all-time). SS Reese Havens and OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis each picked up a hit and scored a run. 3B Zach Lutz and OF Sean Ratliff also had hits and picked up the only two RBI of the game.
