Cyclones 5
Doubledays 6

Wednesday, Aug. 11 at Auburn

The Cyclones dropped their second in a row in an ugly fashion, blowing the game in the bottom of the ninth, thanks to an error and a hit batter by normally reliable closer Ryan Fraser.

Things started off well, as the Cyclones scored two in the second on consecutive hits by Blake Forsythe, J.B. Brown and Luis Nieves.

But starter Angel Cuan was rocked for four runs in the fifth, all coming on Lance Durham’s grand slam.

But the never-say-die Cyclones stormed back, scoring a run in the seventh on a groundout, and tying the score in the eighth on another groundout.

The Cyclones scored what looked like the winning run in the ninth on a William Cherry single, but Fraser blew the save — and got the loss — in the ugly ninth.

The loss was the second in a row for the Cyclones and the fifth in their last 10 games, dropping the team’s first-place lead to seven-and-a-half games.

Darrell Ceciliani, who was at one time batting .400, went 0-for-3, dropping his average to .369.
