CYCLONES SHUTOUT BY RENEGADES, 9-0

Brooklyn, NY -- June 29, 2013 -- The Cyclones lost 9-0 on Saturday, in a game that the Hudson Valley Renegades controlled from the start. The Cyclones starting staff had a 2.93 ERA before entering Saturday’s game, but LHP Dario Alvarez struggled with his command in his 4.2 innings of work, allowing five runs on five hits with four walks.

The Cyclones had a difficult time scoring runs against Renegades starter Aaron Griffin, a day after they set a season high in runs with seven in a win over Hudson Valley. Griffin finished with 4.0 IP, allowing no runs and striking out four. Gavin Cecchini proved to be the bright spot in the Cyclones lineup, going 3-4, including a double into left field. Cecchini’s three hits marked the first three hit game of his Cyclones career. Cecchini is now 5-9 in his last two games.

The Renegades struck early for a pair of runs coming the first inning. Ariel Soriano drove in the first run of the game for Hudson Valley on a triple hit over the head of center fielder Patrick Biondi, scoring Patrick Blair from second. Ariel Soriano then scored on a fielder’s choice hit by DH Oscar Hernandez, making it 2-0 Renegades. Hernandez finished 2-5 on the day with 2 RBI.

The Renegades tacked on three more runs in the fifth all which were charged to Alvarez. The Renegades made it 5-0 on a double steal by Hernandez and Ryan McChesney, when catcher Tomas Nido overthrew third baseman Juan Gamboa, allowing Hernandez to score. The Renegades would go on to score a run in both the sixth and seventh innings, and two in the ninth to make it 9-0.

The Cyclones had their best chance to make something happen in the bottom of the sixth. After back-to-back infield singles from Jared King and Matt Oberste, DH Alex Sanchez walked up to the plate with the bases loaded and two out, trailing 6-0. However, Sanchez flied out to right to end the inning, and a chance for a rally.

The Cyclones will return to MCU Park when they take on the Staten Island Yankees for a doubleheader on Monday, July 1 at 6:00 PM. The second game will begin 30 minutes after the conclusion of the first game. For tickets call 718-507-TIXX, go to the MCU ticket window or click here.
