CYCLONES AND RENEGADES END MARATHON SESSION WITH SPLIT

CYCLONES AND RENEGADES END MARATHON SESSION WITH SPLIT

 

The Cyclones and Renegades split Tuesday’s double-header, which was the third and fourth game between the two teams in a 24-hour period. Brooklyn locked in the 3-0 win in Game 1 and the Renegades walked away with a 3-0 victory in Game 2.

 

Game 1 (Brooklyn 3, Hudson Valley 0)

The Cyclones took Tuesday’s first game of a matinee double-header 3-0, as they gradually knocked in the few runs over the course of the seven-inning game. Brooklyn’s most consistent starter of the season, Marcos Molina, gave the Cyclones another strong start, throwing five innings.

Molina retired the first four Hudson Valley batters he faced, before giving up a walk to Bralin Jackson and was able to keep the Renegades hitless through the first 4.2 innings. In the sixth inning, Josh Prevost came in from the Cyclones bullpen to close out the first game. Molina ended his day with the shutout win and only allowed one hit to the Renegades. Prevost continued Molina’s strong start, getting the save and pitching two scoreless innings and only allowing one base hit.

The Cyclones put their first run on the board early, when Tucker Tharp led off the bottom of the first inning with a walk. The second batter for the Cyclones, Amed Rosario laced a single to right center field and allowed Tharp to advance to third base. With runners on the corners and no one out, Michael Katz comes up to bat. With Katz up, the Cyclones made an aggressive base running move on Hudson Valley’s starter, Enderson Franco. Rosario was able to get a good jump off of first base and reach second safely, beating Wilmer Dominguez’s throw from behind home plate. When Tharp saw Dominguez fire the ball down to second, he capitalized on the chance to run home and safely slide into home plate, giving the Cyclones a 1-0 lead. Katz ended up singling up the middle and pushed Rosario over to third, but the Cyclones were unable to cause any more damage that inning.

In the bottom of the fourth, the Cyclones were able to extend the lead. Michael Katz started things off by hitting a dribbler to shortstop, Coty Blanchard, who was unable to field the ball and get it over to first base in time, giving Katz an infield hit. The next batter, Michael Bernal, crushed a ball over the left field wall, earning his third homerun of the season. The Cyclones picked up the 3-0 lead.

The Cyclones were able to hold onto the lead and shut out the Renegades through the end of the seven-inning game, taking Game 1 of the day.

Game 2 (Hudson Valley 3, Brooklyn 0)

Tuesday’s second game would complete the series between the Renegades and Cyclones, with the Renegades winning the final game. This game, which marked the 1,000th game in Cyclone franchise history, was a match up between two pitchers who made their first starts of the season- Brandon Welch for Brooklyn and Edgar Gomez for Hudson Valley.

Brandon Welch made his fifth appearance, but it was the first time he started a game this season for the Cyclones. Welch usually “piggy backs” or throws the second half of the games that Alberto Baldonado starts, but the two pitchers switched the order in which they would appear. 

In the top of the second inning, the Renegades scored a pair of runs off of Welch. To lead off, Hunter Lockwood hit his sixth homerun of the season over the left field wall, putting the Renegades on the board 1-0. Hudson Valley was then able to string together a few hits to knock in their second run. Clayton Henning and Leopoldo Correa lined back-to-back singles to put runners on the corners. Henning was able to tag up and score off of a fly out by Hudson Valley’s catcher, Zach Marberry. Welch escaped the inning when Alec Sole hit into a groundout, leaving Hudson Valley with a 2-0 lead. 

The Renegades made another threat in the top of the fifth. To start things off, Correa singles and Marberry follows up with a doubles to put runners on second and third with no one out. Welch was able to force Sole to ground out to second baseman, Wil Fulmer and hold the runners. With one out in the top of the fifth, Manager Tom Gamboa makes the call to the bullpen to bring in Alberto Baldonado. The first batter that Baldonado faced was Jace Conrad, who hit a sacrifice fly to center field, scoring Correa and making it a 3-0 ball game.

The Hudson Valley pitching staff was able to keep the Cyclones to just 2 hits during the game and go home with victory in Tuesday’s second game. The Cyclones and Renegades ended up splitting the four game, two day series, which would be the last time the two teams would compete this season.

The Cyclones hit the road for six games straight, but will return home to MCU Park Wednesday, July 16th. Tickets to Wednesday’s game are just $10. To take advantage of this great deal you can call 718-507- TIXX, visit the MCU Park box office, or log onto BrooklynCyclones.com.
