Cyclones 5
Renegades 3

Sept. 4 at Keyspan Park

Catcher Jordan Abruzzo was a monster, hitting a homer and knocking in three runs, helping starter Chris Schwinden escape some trouble to post his fourth win — and keep the Cyclones one-half game ahead of the Jamestown Jammers for the lone wildcard slot with just two games to play.

Abruzzo’s single in the first drove in a run, and gave the Cyclones a 2–1 lead after Eric Campbell tied the score with his own RBI single.

After Hudson Valley tied the score, the Cyclones stormed back on doubles by Josh Satin and Kirk Nieuwenhuis (his 15th of the season) in the fourth inning.

Two more runs came in in the fifth on Abruzzo’s seventh homer of the year. On the night, he was 3-for-4.

The Renegades got a run back in the ninth, but closer Roy Merritt put out the fire.

Schwinden got into trouble early, but settled in, scattering six hits and giving up two earned runs in six innings. He struck out six.

Tonight is a big night in the New York-Penn League, with the Jammers playing a double-header as the Cyclones host the Aberdeen Ironbirds. By evening’s end, the Cyclones could either lock up the playoff slot or, in the worst-case scenario of losing while the Jammers sweep, being knocked out of the race entirely.

Check on Saturday for the details.
