With the score still knotted in the seventh, Satin (pictured, by George Napolitano) belted his fourth home run, a solo shot that put the Cyclones on top for good. In the eighth, Ike Davis doubled hom another run before Lagares hit his first home run of the year to give the Cyclones even more cushion. In the ninth, Williams doubled home one more run for good measure to cap the scoring.
