The Cyclones beat the Lowell Spinners, 6-1, on Thursday night at MCU Park, to salvage the final game of the four-game set.
Lowell took three of four in the series and improved to 29-16, opening up a nine-game lead over Connecticut (20-25) in the New York-Penn League's Stedler Division.
The Cyclones are now 26-19, in third place in the McNamara division behind Aberdeen (28-18) and Hudson Valley (26-18).
Garrison Bryant had a great start for the Cyclones, as he allowed just one run and three hits and a walk, with four strikeouts, to improve to 3-1 on the season and lower his ERA to 3.00.
The Cyclones got on the board in the first inning when Wilmer Reyes got an RBI single to score Yoel Romero to make it 1-0.
The Cyclones added to it in the fourth when Joe Genord had an infield single with the bases loaded to score a run, followed by an RBI single for Kennie Taylor, and a sacrifice fly for Antoine Duplantis to give them a 4-0 lead.
Lowell got one back in the fifth on a Jecorrah Arnold RBI single, but the Cyclones got it back with an RBI triple from Taylor in the sixth, and then opened the game up in the seventh when Romero hit a solo shot, his third homer of the season, to make it 6-1 Brooklyn.
