The Cyclones won the McNamara Division title yesterday in a most unusual fashion. Their game with the Lowell Spinners was tied, 2-2 in the 11th inning, and they had runners on first and third with two outs. Spinners pitcher Ryne Miller than committed an obvious balk, and the Cyclones won the game and the division, and will host the Staten Island Yankees in the first round of the NYPL playoffs. The playoffs begin this weekend, and they will host games Monday and Tuesday (if necessary). The playoff rounds in the NYPL are a best-of-three.
"Walk Off Balk?" Sounds silly doesn't it? I never liked that term "walk off." Since when did it become unfashionable to say "game-winning" anymore? Whatever. Congratulations to the Brooklyn Cyclones on their division championship. I'll be there for the season finale tonight, even though the game has little meaning to either team.
Bring home the title, guys. Go Cyclones!
