CYCLONES LOSE SEE-SAW BATTLE IN HUDSON VALLEY

Wappingers Falls, NY – July 1, 2014 – The Cyclones lost a back-and-forth battle on Tuesday night, falling to Hudson Valley by the score of 8-6. For Brooklyn it was their third straight loss, dropping the team to 11-7 on the season.

The Renegades wasted little time getting on the scoreboard on Tuesday night. Bralin Jackson walked to start the bottom of the first, and two batters, later came around to score when Casey Gillaspie connected on his third home run of the season, giving Hudson Valley an early 2-0 advantage.

Brooklyn responded in their next turn at-bat, also courtesy of the long ball. Michael Katz and Tyler Moore started the threat with a pair of singles and Jeff Diehl chased the pair of runners home with his first home run of the season to give Brooklyn a 3-2 advantage.

The Cyclones saw their lead swell in the top of the third. Jhoan Urena extended his hitting streak to 11 games when he started the rally with a one-out double. After advancing to third on a fly out from Katz, Michael Bernal drove Urena home with a single to right field to push the Brooklyn advantage to -4-2.

The lead was short lived though, because in the bottom of the frame Hudson Valley would add on three runs to take a 5-4 lead and chase Brooklyn starter Alberto Baldonado from the game. Over his last two starts, both against Hudson Valley, the lefthander has allowed 11 runs in 5.2 innings.

Righthander Brandon Welch was the first Cyclones reliever out of the bullpen, and found himself in trouble in the bottom of the fourth inning. Coty Blanchard worked a walk to start the frame an Elias Torres followed with a single to put a pair of runners aboard with nobody out. After each runner advanced thanks to a stolen base, Wilmer Dominguez had an RBI groundout and Alec Sole had a sac fly, to push their advantage to 7-4 after four innings.

Brooklyn sliced into the deficit in their next turn at-bat, scoring a pair of runs thanks to a Michael Katz sac fly and a Michael Bernal RBI double, making it 7-6 after five innings.

But that would be all the offense the Cyclones would be able to muster on the night, as the Renegades bullpen was able to put up zeroes the rest of the way. Hudson Valley tacked on a single run in the bottom off the eighth, off of southpaw Kelly Secrest to make the final score 8-6.

The Cyclones and Renegades will square off on Wednesday night at MCU Park with the Cyclones looking to snap a three-game losing skid. First pitch is set for 7:00 PM with RHP Octavio Acosta (2-0) taking the mound for Brooklyn. It will be Zombie Night at MCU Park with all tickets costing just $10. Tickets are available by calling 718-507-TIXX, visiting the MCU Park box office, or right here at BrooklynCyclones.com
