'Gades Spoil a Happy Harvey Day


Fishkill, NY – August 12, 2017 -- It took nearly a full day to complete due to a rain suspension Friday, but the Renegades scored three runs after the game resumed Saturday to beat the Cyclones in the first game of the series 4-1.

Brooklyn (15-35) and Hudson Valley (26-25) were tied 1-1 in the top of the sixth when the rain came rolling through Dutchess County, and the game was suspended.

Mets 1st Round Pick David Peterson made his second start of the year for Brooklyn, tossing 1.2 shutout innings, allowing two hits and a walk with three strikeouts. He exited the game after 40 pitches, his pre-determined limit, with Brooklyn in front by the score of 1-0. 

The Cyclones took their early lead in the top of the second when Quinn Brodey tripled to start the frame and came home on a sac fly from Carl Stajduhar. 

Hudson Valley tied things up in the bottom of the third when Carl Chester tripled off of Brooklyn reliever Trey Cobb and came chugging home on an RBI groundout from Brendan McKay to knot the score at 1-1.

That’s how it would stay, as the two teams traded zeroes, despite scoring chances for both sides. In the fourth, Brooklyn put a pair of runners aboard with nobody out, but failed to score. In the fifth inning, the Renegades returned the favor as RHP Trent Johnson was able to wiggle out of a jam. 

In the sixth, Quinn Brodey walked, advanced to second on a passed ball and moved over to third on a groundout from Jeremy Vasquez. But then the rain came, and after a two-hour rain delay the game was finally suspended.

The game resumed Saturday evening at 5:05, with Brodey representing the go-ahead run at third base with one out, and Stajduhar the batter. RHP Eduard Rosillo, who started the resumption, began by walking Stajduhar on four pitches. But Franklin Correa struck out and Jeremy Wolf grounded out, ending the Cyclones threat.

Connor O’Neil took the mound for Brooklyn in the bottom of the sixth and got two quick outs thanks to a 5-4-3 double play. But a two-out walk to Oscar Rojas and a double from Bill Pujols brought home a run, giving Hudson Valley at 2-1 lead after six frames.

Rosillo (2-2) pitched 2.2 scoreless innings and earned the win. O’Neil (2-2) took the loss after allowing the go-ahead run in the sixth.

The Renegades added to their lead in the eighth. With Gregorix Estevez on the mound, Angel Perez singled and moved to third after Estevez threw high to second base in an attempt to start a double play after fielding a grounder on the mound. Later on in the frame, Deion Tansel hit a grounder back up the middle that Walter Rasquin fielded, but could not shovel to Franklin Correa covering second base in enough time to get a force out to end the frame. Two runs scored on the play, extending Hudson Valley’s lead to 4-1.

Zack Mozingo pitched the ninth for Hudson Valley, and worked around a two-out walk to record his fifth save of the season.


 


Despite having New York Mets right-hander Matt Harvey making a rehab start, the Cyclones (15-36) fell to the Renegades (27-25) 6-2 in seven innings, losing the first two games of the series.

Harvey took the mound in the bottom of the first inning with a 1-0 lead after Walter Rasquin doubled and subsequently scored on a Quinn Brodey sacrifice fly in the top half of the frame.

But the Renegades tied the ballgame against Harvey, plating a run on a walk, a steal and a single. The right-hander threw 18 pitches—seven of them for strikes—and topped out at 93 miles-per-hour.

Even though it was Harvey that drew the capacity crowd at Dutchess Stadium, it was Hudson Valley right-hander Tobias Myers (3-2) who put on the show. Myers, who was facing Brooklyn for the fourth time this season, struck out a career-high ten batters over 5.1 innings of one-run baseball, allowing just two hits and walking none. Between the first and fifth innings, Myers retired 15 consecutive batters, notching all ten of his strikeouts in the process.

Brooklyn rallied for a run in the sixth. Franklin Correa snapped Myers’ streak by singling up the middle to lead off the frame. He eventually scored from third on a groundout from Rasquin.

It was a rough outing for Luis De Los Santos (0-4), who allowed five runs on six hits in relief of Harvey. After allowing two runs on two hits in the third innings, De Los Santos allowed two more in the fourth when Deion Tansel hit a two-run inside-the-park home run. The Renegades ninth-place hitter hit a sinking line drive that got past a sliding Jose Miguel Medina in right field and rolled all the way to the fence. Tansel flew around the bases, sliding home headfirst in front of the throw to the plate.

Tony Dibrell pitched the final two frames for Brooklyn, holding Hudson Valley scoreless and striking out two batters.

Brooklyn looks to avoid a series sweep tomorrow evening, sending RHP Jose Geraldo to the mound against Renegades’ LHP Brendan McKay. First pitch is scheduled for 5:05 p.m.
