CYCLONES BLOW LATE LEAD, FALL 4-2

BROOKLYN, N.Y. (August 24th, 2015) - The Cyclones lost the first of a three game commuter series with the Hudson Valley Renegades by a score of 4-2 score on Wednesday night at MCU Park. Brooklyn had solid starting pitching and even gained the lead after falling behind but weren’t able to keep Hudson Valley from a comeback of their own. The loss prevents Brooklyn from mounting its first three game winning streak since early July and drops the Cyclones to 29-32 on the season.

In the early going, it was a pitcher’s duel with Cyclones RHP Tyler Badamo and Hudson Valley’s Michael Velasquez matching zeros through five frames.

Brooklyn offense had scattered scoring opportunities against Velasquez, but struggled with follow through. In the second, a Zach Mathieu single and an error left two on with two out before a double play ended the inning. In the fourth and fifth, the Cyclones had runners in scoring position but had those threats thwarted as well. Velasquez exited after five innings of shutout baseball, allowing just four hits and one walk to go with five strikeouts.

Badamo was sharp from the very beginning but Hudson Valley would break the scoreless tie in the top of the sixth. A leadoff single, a sacrifice bunt and a groundout left Jake Cronenworth at third with two outs. An infield single from Manny Sanchez brought the run home and ended the shutout to give the Renegades a 1-0 lead. This marked the end for Badamo, who turned in his seventh quality start of the season. Over six innings of work, the right-hander allowed just one run on six hits while walking two and striking out two.

Brooklyn would finally answer in their half of the sixth, thanks to a little bit of luck. Back-to-back singles from Jeff Diehl and Mathieu put runners and first and second with one out. A balk from Renegades reliever Cris Crisostomo allowed runners to move up to second and third before Brandon Brosher struck out swinging but the ball ended up at the backstop, allowing Diehl to score and tie the game at one. Brosher reached first while Mathieu sat at third before a walk to Hengelbert Rojas loaded the bases. A sacrifice fly from Emmanuel Zabala gave Brooklyn a 2-1 lead before the inning was through.

RHP Nicco Blank entered in the seventh with a slim one-run lead. After a walk, it was Taylor Hawkins who delivered a double to left center field, scoring the runner from first and tying the game at two. After an infield hit and a stolen base, runners were on second and third for Hudson Valley with only one out. An RBI base hit into right field by Oscar Sanay scored a run before a throw from Diehl was in time to cut Hawkins off at the plate. Unfortunately the ball came out of Brosher’s glove, allowing the second run to score as well. It was then 4-2 favoring Hudson Valley, which proved to be how the game would end.

Blank stayed on and struck out the side in the eighth before retiring the side in order in the ninth. In total, Blank (0-4, 2.84) tossed three innings and allowed three runs (two earned) on four hits while striking out four. All four of Blank’s losses this season have come at the hands of the Renegades.

Crisostomo would go on to collect the win despite giving up the lead before John Williams tossed a scoreless seventh. Brandon Koch pitched the eighth and ninth, allowing just one hit and striking out four while collecting his fifth save of the season.

The Cyclones travel to Hudson Valley for their final game at Dutchess Stadium this season. First pitch is scheduled for 7:00 PM as LHP Kevin Canelon takes the hill for Brooklyn. The Cyclones return home to finish up the three game commuter series with the Renegades on Wednesday, August 26th. Join us for our SIDD FINCH BOBBLEHEAD & 30th ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION at MCU Park as we honor the elaborate 1985 April fool’s hoax cooked up by Sports Illustrated and executed by George Plimpton and the New York Mets organization. As part of the evening’s festivities, the first 2,500 fans in attendance will go home with a Sidd Finch bobblehead, featuring his two loves – a baseball and a French horn. Tickets can be purchased at the MCU Park Box Office, by calling (718)507-TIXX or right here at BrooklynCyclones.com.
