Brooklyn Cyclones Update

Brooklyn Cyclones Update

By Elio Velez

After losing to Hudson Valley last Friday night by an 11-3 blowout, the Cyclones have rallied back to win 5 games in row.

The offense has exploded for six or more runs in their last five games. First Baseman Jay Caliguiri continues to a consistent hitter as he leads the team in RBI and over .300 average. Outfielder Frank Corr has started to raise his batting average to over .280 and driving in runs. Though Shortstop Noel Devarez is hitting under .200, he is still a valuable run producer and leads the team in homeruns.

Outfielder Angel Pagan has provided speed with 16 Stolen Bases to lead the club. Newcomer Francisco Sosa at catcher has quickly got off to over.400 batting average in only a few games. Another newcomer, Third Baseman Joseph Jiannetti, has driven in 10 runs in 12 games.

What has sparked the Cyclones all year is their great pitching in starting and relief. With a 3-2 victory over Hudson Valley, Cyclones Pitcher Ross Peeples raised his record to 6-0 and a miniscule 0.62 ERA. Starting Pitcher Luz Portobanco has been a stalwart this year for the Cyclones as he pitched 6 and two thirds innings and only allowing 1 run on 5 hits. He lowered his ERA to not only second on the team but his ERA of 1.17 is third overall in the NY Penn League. Pitcher Mike Cox won against Vermont to go to 4 wins and 1 loss and Harold Eckert won against Vermont to also go to 4-1. Matthew Gahan pitched 7 innings in the 6-3 win over Auburn and did not allow an earned run.

The Cyclones are on the road against Pittsfield and Lowell this weekend and return home on Monday and Tuesday to face off against Lowell. For ticket and other information, Contact:
