BROOKLYN CYCLONES: As Mother Nature Continues to Demand a Say in the NY-PL Pennant Races, Brooklyn Heads North With Hopes of Sacking Troy.
****UPDATE/CORRECTION: They Don't Leave Till Tomorrow. I Got Ahead of Myself.
Mother Nature still continues to thumb her nose in our business. She had Sunday's game in Coney Island suspended after 3 1/2 innings with the Cyclones trailing Tri-City 6-2. Now they will pick-up that game where they left off yesterday up in Troy, N.Y. As part of a home-and-home, tonight begins a three game series against the Tri-City Valley Cats on their turf, after having most of the series in Brooklyn rained on.
Staten Island managed to play their game up in Lowell against the Spinners. And they hammered their hosts 16-1. The Yankees' latest win widened their lead over Brooklyn to three games in the McNamara Division with thirteen games to play. Brooklyn and Staten Island will play a three game series to close out the regular season.
Also last night, the Jamestown Jammers helped Brooklyn along in the Wild Card race by defeating the Williamsport Crosscutters. Williamsport still holds a one game lead over the Cyclones.
Tonight, Williamsport resumes their series against Jamestown, and the Yanks continue along with the Lowell Spinners. Hopefully the Cyclones can manage a come-back in their resumption of yesterday's game, and follow up the night-cap with another victory. With some out of town breaks going our way, the night can prove quite profitable for our Seaside Sluggers. The Brooklyn Cyclones have a League's best 16-13 road record.
Let's Go Cyclones!
