Today’s news:

Long may he wave! Walk-off dinger for Flagg

Lake Monsters 4

Cyclones 6

Tuesday, Aug. 31 at MCU Park

Baseball may be a team game, but this game was all Jeff Flagg.

The Cyclones’ first baseman knocked in five runs — including three on a walk-off homer — to tie the team’s single-season RBI record.

His co-record-holder dresses in the same clubhouse; slugger Cory Vaughn got his 50th RBI in the first on a SAC fly.

Flagg then got his first two runs batted in in the third, when he singled.

But after the Lake Monsters took a 4–3 lead with a two-run fifth, Flagg delivered a bottom-of-the-seventh dinger that sent the crowd home happy and gave the Cyclones their 47th win against just 22 losses.

But the bad news? Slugger Darrell Ceciliani was a last-minute scratch after injuring himself before the game. With Rylan Sandoval already out with a broken wrist, the Cyclones playoff hopes are dimmer unless Ceciliani gets healthy.
