Can We Get Some Offense? The Cyclones struggled to score recently, getting outscored 15-6 over their last four games, including a 7-0 shutout loss against Hudson Valley on Monday. The Cyclones are just 2-5 over their last seven games, and dropped three of a four game set against the rival Staten Island Yankees.

Cyclone of the Week: It’s hard to find a player of the week during such a stretch, but one such player has to be pitcher Wesley Wrenn. Wrenn, a Greensboro, NC native, pitched 5.2 strong shutout innings against Staten Island on July 30, striking out five and helping Brooklyn to a 3-0 victory. On the season, Wrenn is 1-0 with a 2.92 ERA in seven appearances.

Upcoming Games: It’s worst and then first for the Cyclones, who play three games against Jamestown from August 7-9 and then three against Mahonig Valley from August 11-13. Jamestown is mired in last place in the Pickney division at 16-29, while Mahoning Valley is in first place at 28-17.

Upcoming Promotions: Saturday August 8 is fireworks night at Keyspan Park, and Sunday August 9 is Season Ticket Holder day, where ticketholders will get a bunch of different activities, including taking part in batting practice on the field.

Hudson Valley Blanks Brooklyn 5-0

The Cyclones (28-17) were shut out by Hudson Valley (24-21) on Monday night, losing to the Renegades by a score of 5-0. Brooklyn remains in first place in the McNamara Division, leading Staten Island by three games, and Hudson Valley by four.

Southpaw Mark Cohoon took the loss for Brooklyn -- only his second all season -- allowing three earned runs in 6.0 innings. He allowed just three hits, walked two, and struck out four. Erik Turgeon came on in releif in the 7th inning and gave up one run on two hits. Mike Lynn surrendered two more runs on three hits in the final two frames.

Brooklyn’s offense mustered only five hits against Hudson Valley’s pitchers, and went 0-for-8 with runners in scoring position. The only Cyclone with a multi-hit game was 3B Tyler Vaugh who went 2-4 with a single and a double.

The Cyclones return home on Friday, August 7th to host the Jamestown Jammers at KeySpan Park. That night the Cyclones will celebrate EMS and Civil Servant Night, presented by Municipal Credit Union. The first 2,500 fans in attendance will also receive a commemorative EMS T-Shirt presented by Midwood Ambulance. In addition, all fans in attendance will enjoy a post-game Fireworks show.
