Cyclones trip to Happy Valley hits skids
By Adam Rubin
ATLANTA -- The Brooklyn Cyclones lost in Norwich, Conn., by a 5-2 score on Friday night. Then things seemed to get interesting en route to State College, Pa., for their next New York-Penn League series, as players began to tweet about their driving adventure.
Tweeted pitcher Beck Wheeler (@beck_wheelerr): "Nothing like hitting a semi and the guardrail on the bus to wake you up for this 7 hr drive."
Catcher Kevin Plawecki (@kplawecki26): "Movie 'the Grey' is horrible & we just got in a finder bender with a semi. Stuck on the side of the road! 5 more hours till our destination."
Tyler Vanderheiden (@callmevandy): "Semi 1, Cyclones 0"
Outfielder Jonathan Clark (@Jay_TwennyFo): "Just got in a collision with a semi... Good thing @Dwynn6one9 [pitcher David Wynn] was in his car seat"
Concluded Wheeler: "Even If we don't make it to the bigs, at least I know a couple of my teammates can be stand up comedians #comedytweets"
There were no apparent injuries.
