BROOKLYN RALLIES TO DEFEAT RENEGADES, 3-1

Brooklyn Wins 3-1

Brooklyn, NY -- August 14, 2013 -- Brooklyn’s offense came to life at a crucial moment in the bottom of the eighth inning en route to a 3-1 win over the Hudson Valley Renegades on Wednesday. The Cyclones caught a few breaks from the Renegades, including the winning run scoring on a wild pitch by Rick Teasly bringing home Ismael Tijerina, making it 2-1 Cyclones. Dario Alvarez had one of his better outings of the season, tossing 6.0 innings, allowing no earned runs, four hits and striking out four.

Alvarez allowed his only run (unearned) in the top of the fourth inning. Renegades cleanup hitter Oscar Hernandez reached base with no outs on a fielding error by Juan Gamboa. Gamboa could not field the ball cleanly, resulting in a late throw to first base. Hernandez would advance to third on a ground out to Tyler Young with one out, setting up Granden Goetzman with an opportunity to drive in the first run of the game. Goetzman did just that on a sacrifice fly to center field, giving the Renegades a 1-0 lead.

The Cyclones had an opportunity to score in the bottom of the fifth with runners on first and second and nobody out. Jonathan Clark led the inning off with a walk, and Gamboa followed with a walk giving Tomas Nido a chance to make something happen with no outs. However, Renegades pitcher Colton Reavis retired the next three batters, including Nido to escape from the inning unharmed.

The Cyclones put together three runs in the eighth that helped them get the win. Patrick Biondi led the inning off with a hit to left field. Brooklyn manager Rich Donnelly then elected to bunt with Tijerina, and reached on an error by the first baseman that put runners on first and second. A failed pickoff attempt to first base went behind the bag, advancing the runners to second and third. Gavin Cecchini then hit the ball deep enough to center field to drive in Biondi from third to tie the game at one. With Tijerina on third, pitcher Rick Teasly threw a wild pitch, allowing Tijerina to score to give Brooklyn a 2-1 lead. They would add an insurance run on a Matt Oberste RBI single, giving them a 3-1 lead.

Gavin Cecchini finished 1-for-3 with an RBI, extending his hit streak to 12 games. No other Cyclone has had a streak of ten or more, with L.J. Mazzilli coming close at nine. Akeel Morris had another outstanding performance in relief. Morris tossed three no-hit innings, allowing no runs and striking out five. Through 33.1 IP this season, Morris has allowed just two earned runs while striking out 47.

The Cyclones take the field again at MCU Park against the Vermont Lake Monsters on Friday, August 16 at 7:00 PM. For tickets call 718-507-TIXX, go to the MCU ticket window or click here.
