BROOKLYN CYCLONES: The Coney Island Nine dropped below the .500 mark tonight with a loss to the Auburn Doubledays.
The Cyclones are in the middle of a rough stretch as they have now dropped eight of their last eleven games. Auburn jumped out to an early first inning lead and never looked back. They only managed four hits for the game. A couple of errors and some bad base running by the Cyclones made their night look worse. And getting hit by four pitches made this game hurt. The final score was 9-3 in favor of Auburn.
