CYCLONES WIN AN EXTRA INNING THRILLER IN HUDSON VALLEY

CYCLONES WIN AN EXTRA INNING THRILLER IN HUDSON VALLEY


Wappingers Falls, NY – June 18, 2014 – What started out as a pitcher’s duel ended up as a back and forth, action packed, extra inning showdown with the Cyclones coming out on top 4-3 on Wednesday evening. Brandon Welch (2-0) got the win in relief of starter Alberto Baldonado, tossing 3.1 innings, and allowing two unearned runs.

Brooklyn didn’t waste much time getting on the scoreboard this evening, as Amed Rosario, the second batter of the game, connected on a 3-1 offering and sent it over the left field wall to give the Cyclones a 1-0 edge. With Baldonado cruising on the mound for Brooklyn, putting up zeroes and facing the minimum through four innings, it seemed like that might be all the offense the Cyclones would need. The southpaw needed just 35 pitches to get through 4.0 innings but ran into trouble in the fifth.

Mac James started the Hudson Valley rally with a leadoff double and a pair of singles wrapped around a line out loaded the bases for the Renegades with one away. After an 11 pitch battle, Baldonado enduced what seemed like an inning ending double play, but a bad hop off the newly installed Field Turf at Dutchess Stadium forced Dimas Ponce to settle for one out and allowed James to come home and knot the score at 1-1 after five.

After matching zeroes in the sixth, Hudson Valley took their first lead in the bottom of the seventh. Hunter Lockwood singled to start the frame and moved into scoring position after a sacrifice bunt from Elias Torres. Coty Blanchard took advantage of the scoring chance by lacing a single into left center field, scoring Lockwood, and giving the Renegades a 2-1 edge.

But that was just the beginning of the late inning excitement. In Brooklyn’s turn at-bat in the eighth, Joe Tuschak singled and Rosario walked to put a pair of runners aboard. After Tyler Moore popped out for the second out of the inning, Michael Katz ripped an 0-2 offering, with the runners on the move, into leftfield to score Tuschak and knot the score at 2-2.

The Cyclones momentum would be short lived, as Hudson Valley continued the see-saw scoring and took the lead, once again, in the bottom of the eighth. Casey Gillaspie connected on a one-out single, with Bralin Jackson at second base, to score the centerfielder just ahead of the throw from Tucker Tharp and give the ‘Gades another one run lead at 3-2.

And the Cyclones clawed back…again. In the top of the ninth, Jhoan Urena led off with solo blast to right field, it was his first home run of the season, and it tied things up at 3-3.

In the bottom of the inning, it looked like the Renegades would get their fourth walk off win of the season when Wilmer Dominguez singled to right field with two outs, but Michael Bernal gunned down Coty Blanchard at the plate to send the game into extra innings.

In the tenth, a pair of Hudson Valley fielding errors put Tuschak and Rosario on the corners with nobody out. Tyler Moore took advantage of the scoring opportunity when he lofted a sacrifice fly to left field to plate Tuschak and give Brooklyn a 4-3 advantage.

That is how the game would end, as LHP Shane Bay pitched a scoreless 10th inning to close out the game and collect his first save of the early season. Brooklyn will go for the series sweep tomorrow night in Hudson Valley when RHP Ocatvio Acosta (0-0) makes the start for Brooklyn. The team will then head to Aberdeen for at three-game series over the weekend before returning home to MCU Park on Monday night. Tickets are on sale now by calling 718-507-TIXX, visiting the MCU Park Box Office, or at BrooklynCyclones.com
