Brooklyn, NY – June 25th – Strong starting pitching has been key for the Cyclones so far this season, and on Monday night right hander Luis Mateo helped lead Brooklyn to a shutout 3-0 victory over the Hudson Valley Renegades.

Through the first eight games of the season, Cyclones starting pitchers are 5-1. No pitcher has allowed more than two earned runs in any of these outings.

The win was Mateo’s second of the season. He pitched six scoreless innings, allowing just two hits and one walk, while striking out seven batters. Working in relief, Paul Sewald threw two perfect innings, striking out three batters, while Tyler Vanderheiden closed out the game and picked up his second save of the season.

Hudson Valley starting pitcher Taylor Guerrieri struck out the side in the first, although he did allow a triple to shortstop Phillip Evans in between. The Cyclones got to Guerrieri in the second inning, taking a 1-0 lead. First baseman Cole Frenzel singled to left and advanced to third on a line drive double to center field by right fielder Eudy Pina. Frenzel later scored on a balk by Guerrieri and Pina took third on the play; however, left fielder Jonathan Clark hit a ground ball to second to end the inning.

The Cyclones threated for more in the bottom of the sixth, but were unable to score off of relief pitcher Shay Crawford. Center fielder Brandon Nimmo began the frame, reaching first after being hit by a pitch. Evans then singled and a sacrifice bunt by Dimas Ponce put both runners in scoring position with one out. Kevin Plawecki struck out swinging before Cole Frenzel drew a walk; however, DH Stefan Sabol grounded into a fielder’s choice to end the inning, leaving the bases loaded.

Brooklyn added a couple insurance runs in the eighth off a bases loaded, two-RBI single by Pina. Plawecki and Frenzel, who reached on a walk and double, respectively, both scored.

After Renegades catcher Jake DePew singled to lead off the fifth inning, Brooklyn pitching retired the next 12 batters in order. First baseman Michael Williams had the only other Hudson Valley hit, as the team went 0-for-4 with runners in scoring position. The Renegades left three men on base.

The Cyclones will travel to Hudson Valley tomorrow, Tuesday, June 26, to face the Renegades again at 7:05 PM. The team will return home to MCU Park on Wednesday, June 27 to conclude their series against Hudson Valley. First pitch is scheduled for 7:00 PM.
