BROOKLYN CAN'T COMPLETE SWEEP, FALL 4-1 ON FRIDAY


FISHKILL, NY – July 3, 2015 – The Cyclones fell to the Hudson Valley Renegades by the score of 4-1 on Friday night at Dutchess Stadium. Despite allowing just four hits on the evening, the Cyclones bats were never able to get rolling as they lost the finale of the three-game set and dropped to 9-5 on the season.

Nicco Blank (0-1) took the mound for the Cyclones this evening, his first professional start, after Michael Gibbons was promoted to Binghamton (AA) for a spot start with the B-Mets. Blank struggled with his control early, walking the first two batters he faced, and uncorking a wild pitch that led to the first run as the game as Hudson Valley took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first without collecting a hit.

Blank settled down after a rocky first inning, retiring 11 Renegades in a row, giving the Cyclones a chance to draw even in the top of the fifth. Alfredo Reyes reached on a fielders choice and moved into scoring position when Tucker Tharp hit a slow roller back to the pitcher’s mound for out number two. Vinny Siena took advantage of the scoring chance with a line drive single to left to plate Reyes and knot the game at 1-1.

The Renegades responded quickly, scoring twice in the bottom of the frame as Blank started to run out of gas. Angel Moreno led off the inning with a single, the first hit for the Hudson Valley, and advanced to second on Blank’s second wild pitch of the night. Jose Paez followed with a single to centerfield to score Moreno and put the Renegades back in front 2-1. The Hudson Valley left fielder then stole second and advanced to third on a throwing error by Cyclones catcher Jose Garcia. Oscar Sarnay then connected on a sacrifice fly to right field to tack on another run as the Renegades lead expanded to 3-1.

Hudson Valley added an insurance run in the bottom of the sixth, off of Cyclones reliever Craig Missigman, to round out the scoring as the Renegades closed out a 4-1 win. The Cyclones were retired in order in each of the last four innings and Brooklyn went without a base runner after the fifth inning.

The Cyclones will look to rebound on Saturday evening when they begin a three-game series against the Williamsport Crosscutters at MCU Park. First pitch is set for 6:00 PM, when Matt Blackham takes the mound for Brooklyn. Fans in attendance will get to enjoy a post-game fireworks spectacular as we celebrate our nation’s birthday. Tickets, which start at just $10, are on sale now by calling 718-507-TIXX, visiting the MCU Park Box Office or right here at BrooklynCyclones.com
