CYCLONES OUTSLUGGED BY RENEGADES, 6-3

CYCLONES OUTSLUGGED BY RENEGADES, 6-3

On Monday night, fans in attendance at MCU Park were treated to a low scoring, error-less game that extended into extra innings with the end result being a Cyclones 1-0 loss. Tonight, it was a different story for all those who watched the Cyclones visiting the Renegades at Dutchess Stadium.

Brooklyn was able to get a few more runs on the board than they did on Monday night, but a rough start on the mound coupled with a slew of defensive miscues led to them falling for the second night in a row to the Renegades, this time by a final score of 6-3.

The Cyclones continued to go scoreless against the Renegades to start the game, however, the Renegades immediately pounced on Cyclones starting pitcher Alberto Baldonado. Hudson Valley’s lead off hitter Jace Conrad got things underway with a single. Conrad became immediately active on the base paths and stole second, unfortunately for Brooklyn; a throwing error by Tyler Moor would allow Conrad to advance to third. Though Cyclones starter Alberto Baldonado would get a ground out two batters later for the second out in the inning, Conrad would score.

The Renegades would not stop there though, following the ground out by Casey Gillaspie, Elias Torres drew a walk. Baldonado tried to pick-off Torres at first base, which turned into a rundown, and a bad throw to second base would move Torres over to second. Just as Conrad did, Torres would test the Baldonado-Tyler Moore pitcher-catcher combo and stole third base. Hudson Valley’s third baseman Daniel Miles would rip an RBI double to drive in Torres and put his team ahead 2-0.

Despite their tough first inning, the Cyclones offense started to pick up in the second inning. With one out, Cyclones right fielder Michael Bernal was able to reach on an error, and just as Hudson Valley’s base runners, he stole second base. With Bernal in scoring position, all it took to drive him was a single off of the bat of third baseman Jhoan Ureña.

An error by Renegades first baseman Wilmer Dominguez on a pick-off attempt would send Ureña to second base. Breaking out of his slump was the Cyclones left fielder Joe Tuschak who hit a single to put runners on the corners. Jeffrey Diehl would come up and deliver; knocking in Ureña to tie the game at 2 with a single, and Tuschak would advance all the way to third. The inning would come to an end during the next at-bat when Tuschak would try to give his team the lead by tagging up on a shallow fly ball, but was tagged out on the play at home.

The Renegades would pick up another run during the bottom of the second inning, but it would be in the bottom of the third inning where it seemed things were flying off the rails for the Cyclones and only getting better for Hudson Valley. With the bases loaded, Baldonado was able to get a ground ball to the third base side of the field, but Ureña would miss the ball, allowing two runs to score, extending the Renegades lead to 6-2. Following the play, Baldonado would get pulled by manager Tom Gamboa, giving way to Brandon Welch, who would get out of the inning with no more damage done.

To make up for his error, Ureña came up the next inning and hit an opposite field shot that would ricochet off the foul pole, to cut into the Hudson Valley lead, making it 6-3.

During the top of the eighth, the Cyclones tried to get something going after a pair of singles from Amed Rosario and Moore, but a double play off the bat of Michael Katz and fly out by Bernal would put an end to any possible comeback threat that inning. 

Unfortunately for Brooklyn, a 1-2-3 ninth inning would close out the game, giving the Cyclones their second loss in a row.

Despite the loss, it was yet another strong performance from the Cyclones bullpen who pitched 5.2 shutout innings, only giving up four hits, and striking out two batters. The Cyclones are also now tied with the Renegades for first place in the McNamara division of the New York Penn League.

The Cyclones return home on Wednesday night for their first home contest against the Aberdeen IronBirds. It will be the first Wednesday home game of the season, which means all tickets cost just $10. For the first 2,500 fans in attendance, they will receive a limited edition All-Star Game stackable cup, the first of a six cup set. To purchase tickets for Wednesday night’s game or any other Cyclones home game this season, call 718-507-TIXX, visit the box office at MCU Park or Citi Field, or log on to BrooklynCyclones.com.
