VALLEYCATS ERUPT, RUN AWAY WITH 18-4 WIN


TROY, NY – August 7, 2016 – The ValleyCats jump to an early lead and the Cyclones had zero answers as they drop game-two 18-4.

It was a long first inning for Brooklyn as the ValleyCats jumped to an early 8-0 lead after Cyclones starting pitcher, Erik Manoah, allowed the entire lineup to reach base safely in the bottom of the first inning.

The Cyclones did not let the ValleyCats early lead deter their offense as they began to chip away. Pete Alonso opened up the second inning with a double to centerfield and after consecutive singles by Gene Cone and Nick Sergakis the bases were loaded. Blake Tiberi sent Alonso home after he reached on a fielding error and Dan Rizzie stroked RBI sac-fly that decreased the ValleyCats advantage to six, 8-2.

The ValleyCats added five more runs, 13-2, as Brooklyn’s pitching struggles continued into the second inning. Manoah gave up a single and a walk before being pulled for RHP Dillion Becker. Becker did not fare any better as the righthander could not make it through the the rest of the inning before being replaced by Adam Atkins.

The game stayed scoreless for two innings before the ValleyCats opened it back up in the bottom of the fifth when Alejandro Castro walked Taylor Jones and then Spencer Johnson cracked a two-run homer to further the ValleyCats lead to 15-2.

The Cyclones tacked on a run in the sixth, 15-3. Alonso doubled, his second of the night, and was later driven home on a Sergakis line drive to center field.

The ValleyCats offense continued to flourish as they drove in three more runs against Gabriel Feliz in the bottom of the seventh as they furthered the lead to 18-3.

Before the night finished the Cyclones scored one more run, 18-4, after Sergakis cracked a double, his third hit of the night, and was brought home after Tiberi stroked a hard ground ball to right field.

RHP Joseph Zanghi stepped in for 2.0 innings and gave up only one hit, walked two and struck out three.

Brooklyn will try to avoid a ValleyCats sweep tomorrow night at 7:00 P.M. as Gabriel Llanes (2-5, 3.18 ERA) takes the mound. The Cyclones will return to MCU Park Tuesday night as the open up a three-game series against the Vermont LakeMonsters. The first 2,000 fans to enter will receive a Joe Torre Cadets Bobblehead.
