Closing in on Division Title: The Cyclones used a 4-2 week to move to 40-23 overall on the season. Brooklyn, owners of the second-best record in the New York- Penn League, are 4.5 games ahead of second-place Staten Island in the McNamara Division. With 13 games remaining as of press time, Brooklyn’s magic number for clinching the division is 10.

Moore Pitches No Hitter: 2008 draft-pick Brandon Moore threw the first no hitter in Brooklyn Cyclones history on Sunday, tossing seven scoreless innings as the Cylones prevailed over the Aberdeen IronBirds 5-0 a seven-inning contest. Moore, who struck out six and walked three during the game, retired nine straight batters between the second and fifth innings.

Six-Pack of All-Stars: Six Cyclones were named to the NY-Penn National League All-Star Game Tuesday: LHP Mark Cohoon, C Dock Doyle, LHP Jim Fuller, 1B Sam Honeck, RHP Michael Powers, and OF Luis Rivera. Also, by virtue of having the best record of NL Affiliates, Brooklyn’s coaching staff: Pedro Lopez, Rick Tomlin, Jack Voigt, and Joel Fuentes, along with trainer Deb Iwanow were selected to manage the NL team. Unfortunately, the AL scraped out a hard fought 4-2 victory.

The Upcoming Week: With eyes on the McNamara pennant, the Cyclones will travel this week, facing Oneonta and Lowell on the road. The matchups with Lowell, the Stedler division leaders, will be Brooklyn’s first of the season.
