CYCLONES SKID CONTINUES, LOSE 4-1 IN HV

 


FISHKILL, NY – July 17, 2016 – The Cyclones offensive struggles continued on Sunday evening as they tallied just two hits en route to a 4-1 loss to the Hudson Valley Renegades. Blake Tiberi’s two singles were the only hits the Brooklyn bats would muster as they lost their fourth straight. The Cyclones have scored just four runs in their last four contests.

It was the Cyclones who jumped out to an early lead on Sunday, when Pete Alonso reached on a throwing error by Hudson Valley third baseman Jim Haley to start the frame and would eventually come around to score on Haley’s second throwing error of the frame to make it 1-0.

The lead would be short-lived however, as Brooklyn starter Joel Huertas (2-3) got knocked around in the bottom of the frame. The southpaw allowed four hits, with the big knock coming off the bat of Bill Pujols, who had a two-out, two RBI double that gave the Renegades a 3-1 edge after two.

That would be the end of the night for Huertas, who left the game with a knee injury after just 2.0 innings, but the damage had been done. The Cyclones never got a runner past first base for the remainder of the game and the Renegades were able to tack on an insurance run in the bottom of the 7th.

With Justin Dunn on the mound, ‘Gades catcher Danne De La Calle had a sun-aided double to lead off the inning and advanced to third on a throwing error when Ali Sanchez tried to throw behind the runner to pick him off. Jose Rojas then plated the insurance with an RBI single that made it 4-1. Dunn was able to bounce back though, striking out a pair to limit the damage and escape the frame. The Mets 1st round selection tossed a scoreless 8th inning to close out his night with 2.0 innings pitched, allowing 3 hits, one run, earned, with one walk and three strikeouts.

The Cyclones will have a quick turnaround for game-two of the three-game set as they square off with the Renegades at 11:05 AM on Monday morning. The two teams will close out the set on Tuesday night before taking advantage of a league-wide off day on Wednesday. The Cyclones will then return to MCU Park to open a six-game homestand on Thursday evening with Irish Night at the ballpark. Tickets start at just $10 and can be purchased at the MCU Park Box Office, by calling 718-507-TIXX or at BrooklynCyclones.com
