Lake Monsters 1


Tuesday, Aug. 24 at Keyspan Park

Starter Collin McHugh, who has been good all year long, was dominant, yielding just three hits in six innings, striking out five and lowering his earned run average to 2.54 while picking up his eighth win of the season.

The Cyclones made it easy for McHugh, scoring in the first inning on a Jordany Valdespin bunt single, a Richard Lucas single and a Luis Rivera RBI groundout.

After the Lake Monsters tied the score in the third on a double and a single, McHugh settled down, giving up just one more hit.

The Cyclones got the winning run in the fourth, thanks to a Rivera leadoff triple and a Sam Honeck SAC fly.

A final run scored in the fifth on a Dock Doyle leadoff triple and a subsequent wild pitch.

The win kept the Cyclones’ first-place lead at four-and-a-half games over the hated Yankees who won at home. There are only 12 games left.
