Today’s news:

Clones win second in a row

Renegades 2

Cyclones 5

Monday, June 27 at MCU Park

Starter Yohan Almonte scattered six hits and struck out five, while the Cyclone offense battered Renegades pitching with a 13-hit barrage that earned the Brooks their second straight win.

After the Renegades scored in the first, it was almost all Cyclones, with two runs scoring on Cory Vaughn’s third homer of the year. He later tripled, and added an RBI in the fifth on a groundout.

In that inning, the Cyclones scored two more times on Jeff Flagg’s two-run dinger to put the game out of reach.

The win increased the Cyclones’ first place lead to 1-1/2 games over the Renegades.

The Cyclones return home on Wednesday night against the Renegades. Game time is 7 pm at MCU Park [1904 Surf Ave. at W. 19th Street in Coney Island, (718) 449-8497]. For info, visit www.brooklyncyclones.com.
