Brooklyn Cyclones Update By Elio Velez

Brooklyn Cyclones Update By Elio Velez

The Brooklyn Cyclones continued their winning ways with a 5-1 week and stayed in first place. The Cyclones lead the Staten Island Yankees by 4 games in the McNamara Division in the NY Penn League.

The Cyclones have continued to pound the baseball as their offense continues their resurgence. The table setter for the offense has been Outfielder Angel Pagan. Pagan has been getting on base with regularity and is a viable threat to steal a base. Pagan leads the team with 25 steals and his on base percentage is around .400, which helps jumpstart the offense.

First Baseman Jay Caliguiri and Outfielder Frank Corr continue to be the most consistent hitters on the ball club. New arrivals such as Catcher Francisco Sosa and Outfielder Wayne Lydon are making good impressions.

The Cyclones bullpen has been anchored by the pitching of David Byard. Byard leads the team with 9 saves and teams are batting .140 against him. Setup man Blake Mcginley had 1.83 ERA and pitched 3 innings of shutout ball in the 3-1 victory over Staten Island.

The Cyclones broke the all time attendance record of the NY Penn League on August 13th. A sellout crowd of 8,061 helped Brooklyn to set the record at 208,377. The record was previously held last year by Mahoning Valley, which had 206,247.]

The Cyclones play a home and away series with Staten Island on Friday and Saturday. Brooklyn plays a home and away series with New Jersey on Sunday and Monday. The Cyclones return home for a 4 game series with Mahoning Valley.
