CYCLONES STRAND 11 RUNNERS IN LOSS TO MUCKDOGS

BOX SCORE

PLAY-BY-PLAY

August 11- Batavia, NY For the third game in a row, the Batavia Muckdogs were the team to put a run on the board first and in Monday’s game, they were also the last team to put a run on the board last, giving them a 4-3 walk-off victory over Brooklyn.

 Both teams combined for 24 hits in Monday’s game, but remained tied at two going into the eighth inning. Despite Casey Meisner’s longest outing on the mound, the Cyclones could not come up with enough runs to win the game as they tied a season high of 11 runners left on base.

Batavia made the first mark on the scoreboard in the third inning. Ryan Aper started things off for the Muckdogs with a single hit to third baseman Jhoan Ureña and was able to advance to second base when Ureña made a throwing error attempting to get Aper out at first. The next batter, Mason Davis, lined a triple to right field to drive Aper home from third base. A ground out from Javier Lopez allowed Davis to plate Batavia’s second run.

Despite recording six hits through the first four innings, the Cyclones were only able to plate one run in the top of the fifth. John Mora laced a double through the hole at shortstop to pick up his third hit of the night. Michael Conforto earned his twelfth RBI of the season by driving Mora home and closing in on the Muckdogs lead to make it a 2-1 ball game.

An inning later, the Cyclones tied the game at two, thanks to a long shot by Tomas Nido. Nido led off the top of the sixth, launching his first homerun of the season. The Cyclones catcher, who went 3-4 on the night, would also initiate a two out rally in the bottom of the eighth that once again gave Brooklyn a one run lead.

In the top of the eighth, Batavia bought in Ramon Oviedo from the bullpen, who was able to retire the first two Cyclone batters he faced. However, Tomas Nido doubled to right field, which was followed by back-to-back walks dealt to Jeff Diehl and Pedro Perez. The next batter, Tucker Tharp hit a slow chopper to Javier Lopez at short, who makes an error and allowed all of the Cyclones runners to advance safely, including the go ahead run to make it 3-2.

Batavia responded in the bottom half of the eighth with the tying run, thanks to a single and an error made at second base by Tyler Moore that allowed the Muckdogs third run of the night to score. An inning later, Batavia was able to come up with one more run to win the game.

Carlos Valdez, who replaced Casey Meisner in the eighth inning, got caught in a jam in the bottom of the ninth that started with back-to-back bunts from the Muckdogs. With a runner on second and one out, Carlos Duran grounded out to shortstop Amed Rosario, but Mason Davis, who represented the go ahead run, moved to third. Victor Castro roped a single to plate the winning run, as the Muckdogs walked off with a 4-3 victory.

The Cyclones return home to MCU Park on Tuesday, hosting Lowell for a three game series. Scarlyn Reyes will take the mound for Brooklyn on Tuesday and fans are encouraged to bring their man’s best friend, as it is Bark in the Park Night at MCU Park.
