Fishkill, NY – August 11, 2017 – The Cyclones and Renegades were tied 1-1 in the top of the sixth when the rain came rolling through Dutchess county, and the game was suspended. It will resume on Saturday evening at 5:05 PM and played to completion with a second, seven-inning game to follow.
Mets 1st Round Pick David Peterson made his second start of the year for Brooklyn, tossing 1.2 shutout innings, allowing two hits and a walk with three strikeouts. He exited the game after 40 pitches, his pre-determined limit, with Brooklyn in front by the score of 1-0.
The Cyclones took their early lead in the top of the second when Quinn Brodey tripled to start the frame and came home on a sac fly from Carl Stajduhar.
Hudson Valley tied things up in the bottom of the third when Carl Chester tripled off of Brooklyn reliever Trey Cobb and came chugging home on an RBI groundout from Brendan McKay to knot the score at 1-1.
That’s how it would stay, as the two teams traded zeroes, despite scoring chances for both sides. In the fourth, Brooklyn put a pair of runners aboard with nobody out, but failed to score. In the fifth inning, the Renegades returned the favor as RHP Trent Johnson was able to wiggle out of a jam.
In the sixth, Quinn Brodey walked, advanced to second on a passed ball and moved over to third on a groundout from Jeremy Vasquez. But then the rain came, and after a two-hour rain delay the game was finally suspended. It will resume on Saturday evening at 5:05 PM with Brooklyn batting in the top of the 6th and the go-ahead run on third base with one out.
Following the completion of the suspended game, Brooklyn and Hudson Valley will play a second, 7-inning contest starting as close to 7:05 PM as time allows.
