Losing Skid Hits 8 With 4-1 Loss


Troy, NY – August 19, 2017 -- The Cyclones lost their eighth straight contest, and for the 12th time in their last 13 games, falling to the Tri-City ValleyCats by the score of 4-1 on Saturday evening. The eight-game losing streak is tied for the second longest in franchise history, behind a nine-game losing skid from August 26 – September 2, 2002.

It took just two pitches on Saturday night for Tri-City to take the lead as Bryan De La Cruz connected on a solo home run to lead off the bottom of the first and give the Valley Cats a 1-0 advantage.

Brooklyn had a chance to draw even in the top of the second when Jeremy Vasquez and Scott Manea had a pair of singles and after a passed ball, the Cyclones had runners on second and third with one out. But Carlos Sanchez lined out and Guillermo Granadillo, making his Cyclones debut, struck out to end the threat.

Tri-City added a pair of runs in the third to extend their lead to 3-0, and chase Brooklyn starter Luis De Los Santos (0-5) allowed three runs on four hits with three walks and two strikeouts over his 2.2 innings on the mound.

After trading zeroes in the fourth and fifth, the Cyclones were finally able to get on the scoreboard in the sixth. Vasquez worked a lead off walk, advanced to second on a wild pitch and moved to third on a groundout from Carl Stajduhar. Scott Manea then stroked an opposite field single into right field to plate Vasquez and cut the Brooklyn deficit to 3-1.

But that’s as close as the Cyclones would get, as the ‘Cats took advantage of a Brooklyn error in the seventh to score an unearned run against Stephen Villines and make it 4-1, which is how the game would end.

Brooklyn went just 2-for-13 with runners in scoring position on Saturday night, and are just 8-for-76 (.105) with RISP during their current 8-game losing streak.

Brooklyn will send RHP Jose Geraldo to the mound on Sunday for the 5:05 PM start with hopes of snapping the losing skid.
