This season he earned his eleventh vicory in a Brooklyn uniform. A year ago, he won nine games for the Cyclones. He achieved his record on June 20th versus the Aberdeen Iron Birds.
He will start today's series finale against the Hudson Valley Renegades who have won the first two games of this series up in Peekskill, N.Y. Both teams returned to Coney Island today for the last game.
These last two losses dropped the Cyclones out of first place for the moment. The Staten Island Yankees moved into first place with a 5-2 record. The Cyclones have a 5-3 record and sit one half game out of first entering tonight.
The Yankees will be playing in Aberdeen tonight.
