'Clones Lose 12th Straight


Brooklyn, NY -- August 23, 2017 – The Cyclones losing skid hit 12 games on Wednesday night following an 8-0 loss to the Hudson Valley Renegades. It marked the second straight game that Brooklyn was shut out and the sixth time this season. The Cyclones managed just four hits on the night, with Quinn Brodey and Carlos Sanchez each providing half of the offensive output.

RHP Chris Viall (0-2) made the start for Brooklyn and was impressive over his 4.0 innings of work. The tall righthander struck out six batters while topping out at 96 MPH on the mound. But the 2016 sixth round selection from Stanford was the hard-luck loser on the night because the Renegades pushed home an unearned run the second following an error from Dylan Snypes.

Brooklyn had several scoring chances on the night, but went 0-for-7 with runners in scoring position. Perhaps the Cyclones best opportunity came in the fifth when Carlos Sanchez had a one-out triple but was quickly erased when Cecilio Aybar grounded to second baseman Vidal Brujan, who fired home to erase Sanchez and keep Hudson Valley in front 1-0.

Mets All-Star closer Jeurys Familia made his second of back-to-back outings from Brooklyn and needed just 13 pitches, 11 for strikes to cruise through his inning of relief.

But Trent Johnson didn’t fair as well for the Cyclones. After a scoreless sixth inning, Hudson Valley blew the game wide open in the seventh. The ‘Gades pushed home six runs on six hits to take a commanding 7-0 advantage.

The lead would well in the eighth when they tacked on another run against the righthander to make Johnson’s final line 2.1 innings pitched, eight hits, seven runs, earned, with one strikeouts.

The 12-game losing streak is tied for the longest in the New York-Penn League since at least 2005 (Currently available statistics only date back to the start of the 2005 season). The loss also dropped the Cyclones to 15-45 on the year.

Brooklyn will look to snap their skid on Thursday evening when RHP Ryan McAuliffe, a St. John’s product, toes the rubber for Brooklyn. The first 5,000 fans in attendance will receive a Home Run Apple Jack in the Box at the 7:00 PM game.
