Cyclones Lead Early, Fall Late

Troy, NY – August 20, 2017 -- Brooklyn seemed poised to break their recent losing skid on Sunday evevening when they jumped out to an early lead, and then rallied in the late innings to jump in front again, but in the end the ValleyCats came roaring back for a 13-10 win over Brooklyn at Bruno Stadium. The loss was the ninth straight for the Cyclones, tying a franchise record set in 2002, and .

Brooklyn wasted no time getting their offense started on Sunday as back-to-back doubles from Dylan Snypes and Walter Rasquin to start the game plated a run and gave Brooklyn the early lead. Quinn Brodey followed with an RBI single to chase home another run and after Jeremy Vasquez singled to put a pair of runners aboard, Franklin Correa reached on an error that allowed a pair to score and pushed the Brooklyn advantage to 4-0.

After Tri-Ctiy scored a pair in their half of the first, Brodey added his second RBI single in as many innings to push the Brooklyn advantage to 5-2

But in the bottom of the frame, any momentum on Brooklyn’s side vanished thanks to a five run inning from the Valley Cats. Brooklyn starter Jose Geraldo saw his night come to a close after 1.2 innings, allowing seven runs, on four hits with a pair of walks. The righthander was let down by his defense as a fielding error by Jeremy Vasquez led to three unearned runs in the frame.

The Cyclones kept coiming though, scoring a run in the third courtesy of an RBI single from Carlos Sanchez, that made it 7-6 headed to the fourth. Tri-City continued to see-saw scoring with a single run in the fourth to push their lead back to two at 8-6.

But things were just getting started as Brooklyn would take their turn with the lead in the top of the fifth. Guillermo Granadillo had an RBI single to plate one run and would later score on a fielding error – following Franklin Correa, who scored on a wild pitch. At the half way point, Brooklyn now led 9-8.

In the bottom of the frame the ‘Cats knotted things up again, scoring a run off of Brooklyn reliever Cannon Chadwick, to make it 9-9. After a scoreless sixth inning, Brooklyn took the lead – again – in the top of the seventh thanks to a Carlos Sanchez RBI single. But in the bottom of the inning Tri-City teed off against Tony Dibrell (0-2), scoring four runs to turn a 10-9 defecit into a 13-10 lead.

That is how the game would end, as Luis Ramirez was able to record a 1-2-3 inning in the ninth to close out the Tri-City win.

Quinn Brodey went 3-for-5 to pace the offense, but Cyclones pitchers issued seven walks and were charged with four wild pitches on the night.

The Cyclones will look to snap their longest losing streak in almost 15 years when they send Nicolas Debora (0-4) to the mound.
