HOW SWEEP IT IS! BROOKLYN BRINGS OUT THE BROOMS VS. THE GADES

HOW SWEEP IT IS!  BROOKLYN BRINGS OUT THE BROOMS VS. THE 'GADES

Wappingers Falls, NY -- June 19, 2014 -- The Cyclones took the last game of the three game series with the Hudson Valley to complete the sweep of the Renegades and take sole possession of the first place in the McNamara Division after the first week of the season.

Through the first five innings of the game, starting pitchers Octavio Acosta and Enderson Franco were locked in a pitcher’s duel. Acosta, making his second start of the season for the Cyclones, retired the first 11 Hudson Valley batters, before Casey Gillaspie laced the Renegade’s first hit in the fourth inning.

With the score tied at zero, Acosta was caught in his first jam in the bottom of the fifth inning. Daniel Miles hit a lead off single for the Renegades, followed by a single from Coty Blanchard to put runners on first and third. With a runner in scoring position, Hudson Valley’s DH, Leopoldo Correa, hit a soft ground ball to third baseman Jhoan Ureña who threw home to Luis Arrizurieta to get the out and keep the game scoreless. With two outs and Correa on first base, Acosta threw a pitch that got away from Arrizurieta. Correa hesitated on the base path and got caught between first and second base. Arrizurieta threw down to Chavez who tagged Correa out for the final out of the inning.

Arrizurieta, did not start the game, but came in when Tyler Moore was taken out of the game in the third inning due to a right thigh contusion. Moore collided with Michael Katz in the infield grass when both players were chasing after an infield pop-up. He finished the third inning, but was later removed from the game.

Franco’s night came to an end at the top of the sixth inning, when Darren Fischer came in to relieve the Renegades starting pitcher.  Franco kept the Cyclones scoreless through five innings and struck out eight batters, but Fischer was unable to pick up where he left off. The right-handed reliever walked the first batter he faced, Amed Rosario, to get things started for the Cyclones. Arrizurieta would then follow suit with with an RBI triple laced into the rightfield gap to drive in Rosario with the Cyclones first run of the game. Looking for his second hit of the game, Tomas Nido picked up an RBI single that allowed Arrizurieta to score and tack on the Cyclones second run. Fischer still couldn’t find his command- he walked the Cyclone’s next batter, Jeff Diehl, and gave up another RBI single to centerfielder, Tucker Tharp, extending Brooklyn’s lead to be 3-0. Anthony Chavez worked a walk to load the bases with two out, but a fly out from Joe Tuschak put an end to the Brooklyn uprising.

Acosta pitched through the sixth inning, keeping the Renegades scoreless and only giving up four hits on the night. Right-hander Josh Prevost came in to relieve Acosta in the seventh inning, making his professional debut. Prevost gave up two hits to the Renegades, but a stellar diving catch by Tharp in right center kept Hudson Valley from pushing a run across.

The Cyclones tacked on another run in the eighth inning, making it a 4-0 ballgame. Tharp collected his third hit of the night, off of Hudson Valley’s Gerardo Reyes, with an RBI doubled ripped to the opposite field that scored Michael Bernal. Reyes attempted to pick off Tharp at second base, but threw the ball that was intended for second baseman, Blanchard, into right center- allowing Tharp to advance to third. The Cyclones left Tharp stranded, as Reyes wiggled his way out of the inning.

Brad Wieck came in from the Cyclones bullpen to pitch the eighth inning and also make his professional debut on the mound. Wieck gave up one hit, but picked up his first two strikeouts on the season. He handed the ball over to Eddie Villasmil to close out the game in the ninth inning. With two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning, another Cyclone collision occurred, this time between Chavez and Bernal. Bernal was taken out of the game and Dimas Ponce took over at second base. Chavez was moved to first base and Katz took over in right field.  But Villasmil was quickly able to end the inning before any more damage could occur.

The Cyclones will now head south to Aberdeen, MD to open a three-game set with the IronBirds on Friday evening.  RHP Casey Mesiner (0-0) will toe the rubber for the Cyclones in the series opener.  Brooklyn will return to MCU Park on Monday for the first of a three-game set with the Renegades.  Tickets, which start at just $10, are on sale now by calling 718-507-TIXX, visiting the MCU Park Box Office, or at BrooklynCyclones.com.
