June 29 at MCU Park
A massive two-run homer by Cyclones shortstop Philip Evans gave the Mini Mets an early lead in Friday’s 5–2 victory over the Aberdeen Ironbirds — a lead pitcher Rainy Lara refused to relinquish.
The towering Dominican-born flamethrower fanned 10 Ironbirds in the first six innings and gave up just three hits, limiting the Junior Orioles to two runs before Beck Wheeler was called in to replace him.
Evans’s homer led a four-run rally in the third for the Clones. A triple by first baseman Cole Frenzel and a double by left fielder Stefan Sabol’s brought in two additional runners before the frame ended.
Frenzel sealed the win in the eighth, reaching home on Sabol’s second double of the night.
Both Frenzel and Evans have six RBI’s for the season.
The Cyclones are home again at MCU Park [1904 Surf Ave. at W. 17th Street in Coney Island, (718) 4498497, www.brooklyncyclones.com] tonight at 7 pm as they take on the Aberdeen Ironbirds.
