Today’s news:

Great pitching and timely hitting pace Clones over Yanks

Yankees 1

Cyclones 3

Saturday, July 31 at MCU Park

Starter Chris Hilliard won his sixth game against only one loss, thanks to six very solid innings, though the Yankees finally touched him in the seventh — an inning that also saw fiery manager Wally Backman get booted.

The Cyclones were ahead 3-0 before that bizarre inning, thanks to a a third inning that saw a Juan Centeno leadoff double, a Ryland Sandoval single, a Darrell Ceciliani RBI double, and back-to-back SAC flies by Cory Vaughn and Jeff Flagg.

The Cyclones had just five hits on the night, but they made them all pay off.

The team’s record improved to a phenomenal 29-13, and the Cyclones’ first place lead over the Yankees jumped to seven games.

Ceciliani — who is trying to become the first Cyclone to hit .400 — went 1-for-3, dropping his average to .388.

The next Cyclones home game is Monday at 7 pm at MCU Park [1904 Surf Ave. at W. 19th Street in Coney Island, (718) 449-8497]. For info, visit www.brooklyncyclones.com.
