After 11 and a half scoreless innings, Hudson Valley scored a run in the 12th to edge Brooklyn by a score of 1-0 on Wednesday night for the series sweep.
Cyclones starter Scott Shaw tossed five shutout innings -- retiring 11 in a row at one point -- and was followed by Chris Schwinden, who hurled four scoreless frames of his own. Wendy Rosa came on in relief in the 10th, and put up zeroes for two more innings, before running into trouble in the 12th. Rosa (0-1) took the loss after allowing a hit and a walk, the first of which scored the winning run thanks to a two-out hit off of the final pitcher of the night, Jimmy Johnson (pictured, by George Napolitano).
The Cyclones managed just six hits, two of which came off the bat of the red-hot John Servidio. Brooklyn could not string a rally together, however, and was unable to cross the plate. Renegades pitchers struck out 12 in 12 innings.
The Cyclones return home on Thursday at 7pm to face the Aberdeen IronBirds, and Mets star Ryan Church is scheduled to play for Brooklyn. On Thursday, the Cyclones will also host Pirate Night (aarrr!). In addition to eyepatches and earings, fans will be treated to a treasure hunt, and may even be forced to walk the plank!
