FISHKILL,NY – July 18, 2018 – The Cyclones snapped their four-game losing skid with a 6-3 win over the Hudson Valley Renegades on Monday afternoon at Dutchess Stadium. LHP Taylor Henry recorded the final four outs of the game, including a strikeout with the bases loaded to escape the eighth inning, to collect his fourth save of the season.
With the early morning start time of just after 11:00 AM, it seemed like both offenses hit the snooze button, sleepwalking their way through the first three innings. But in the bottom of the fourth the Renegades seemed like they would break the scoreless tie. Jake Fraley singled and stole second base with two outs before Nathaniel Lowe singled to right field but Gene Cone fielded quickly and came up firing and was able to throw out the speedy Fraley at the plate for the final out of the frame, keeping this scoreless heading into the fifth.
It was in that fifth inning that the Renegades were finally able to break the scoreless tie. Angel Perez led off the frame with a single and stole second base to move himself into scoring position. The Hudson Valley DH would then move over to third on a ground out and came home to score on a fielder’s choice when Brooklyn third baseman Blake Tiberi’s throw to the plate was a tad late as Perez slid home safely with the game’s first run.
But in the top of the sixth inning the Brooklyn bats awoke from their slumber, taking control of the game. The rally started innocently enough with a two-out walk of Pete Alonso before Blake Tiberi hit a ground rule double that put runners on second and third for Colby Woodmansee. The Cyclones shortstop took advantage of the scoring change with a frozen rope to left field, plating a pair and giving Brooklyn a 2-1 lead. For the slumping Cyclones, it was their first RBI in 29 innings. But the ‘Clones weren’t done there, Jacob Zanon had an RBI single and Jay Jabs ripped an RBI double to make it 4-1.
The Cyclones lead would expand in the seventh when Alonso smashed a two-run blast over the centerfield wall to push the Brooklyn advantage to 6-1.
RHP Erik Manoah (3-1) made the start for Brooklyn and left after tossing 5.0 innings, allowing just one run on four hits while walking one and striking out one. He handed the ball over to Raul Jacobson, who was nearly spotless in the sixth and seventh but ran into trouble in the bottom of the eighth. The rigthhander allowed an RBI single to Garrett Whitley that made it 6-2 and eventually was chased from the game with the bases loaded and two outs in the bottom of the eighth. Taylor Henry trotted in from the bullpen and struck out Nathaniel Lowe to end the threat and keep the Cyclones ahead.
The Renegades plated a single run in the ninth after Henry allowed a single and a walk with a wild pitch to start the frame, but the Brooklyn southpaw was able to limit the damage and closed out a 6-3 win.
The Cyclones will look to take the rubber game of the three-game series when the teams square off in the series finale on Tuesday evening. Brooklyn will send RHP Gabriel Llanes (1-3) to the mound. The Cyclones will then take advantage of a league-wide off day on Wednesday before opening up a six-game home stand on Thursday evening against the Aberdeen IronBirds with Irish Night at the ballpark. Tickets start at just $10 and can be purchased at the MCU Park Box Office, by calling 718-507-TIXX or at BrooklynCyclones.com
