Today’s news:

A huge 10-0 win on the road

The Brooklyn Paper

Cyclones 10
Tigers 0

Saturday, Aug. 28 at Connecticut

The Cyclones clinched the McNamara Division with a demolition of the Tigers, though the game was close until the eighth inning.

The Cyclones were up just 2–0, thanks to a SAC fly and a Blake Forsythe solo homer, when they broke out for six runs in the eighth.

Jeff Flagg led off with a homer before Joe Bonfe singled and Justin Schafer, James Schroeder, Darrell Ceciliani and Cory Vaughn all had RBI hits.

Two more runs scored on Ceciliani’s 11th triple of the year in the ninth.

Starter Yohan Almonte was fantastic, going all the way, but yielding just six hits and striking out five.

Ceciliani was 2-for-5 with three RBIs, raising his average to .351.

Actually the Cyclones clinched the division with their win on Saturday. Nice fact checking there.

Joe, you are wrong. They clinched after winning this game.

Frank, you are wrong. The Cyclones won on Saturday and Hudson Valley lost which gave Brooklyn the division crown (I'm not sure which game ended first, but it's highly doubtful that this post was made after a Brooklyn win but before the HV loss...and even if that was the case, to not specify as much is lazy journalism--ie, typical BP Cyclones coverage).

See for yourself:

Are you kidding me? from Coney says:
From the story, which you just linked:

"The Brooklyn Cyclones (44-21) clinched the 2010 McNamara Division title with a dominating 10-0 win over the Connecticut Tigers (33-34) on Saturday and a loss by Hudson Valley."

You do see that this article is about the game on Saturday, right?

Yes. Saturday is the day the Cyclones clinched--both stories are about that day's game--a 10-0 win over the Tigers. Yet no mention of winning the division in the BP story.

The story should mention that 24 minutes after the Cyclones victory on Saturday (I checked game lengths on's easy), Brooklyn officially clinched the division when Hudson Valley lost to Tri-City 2-1. Without that the story is incomplete...but like I said, to expect that, or simple things like quotes from players or the manager after most games is probably being ambitious.

Clearly, you are not a baseball guy.
