The Brooklyn Cyclones, the Borough's own pro baseball team, have opened their seventh season on a tear. They took their opening series, two games to one, from their across-the-Narrows archrivals, the Staten Island Yanks, and tonight beat the Hudson Valley Renegades 3-0 to make their record 3-1. This is an auspicious start for manager Edgar Alfonzo, who returned to the helm after a six year hiatus, having skippered the Cyclones to a co-championship of the New York-Penn League in their maiden season.
Meanwhile, the Cyclones parent team, the Mets, returned to the winning column tonight with a 9-1 shellacking of the Oakland A's, riding the revived arm of Tom Glavine, who notched his 296th career win.
