Batavia Muckdogs 2
Cyclones 0

July 27 at Dwyer Stadium

Batavia hurler Joe Cuda dominated the Clones’ offense as the Muckdogs shut out the Mini-Mets in the final face-off of a three-game series.

Cuda limited the pride of Coney Island to just one hit, zero walks, and zero runs in five innings of work, striking out a total of seven batters and sending the Cyclones down in order the first four innings. Brooklyn starting pitcher Luis Cessa gave up a run in the first inning — an RBI double to left fielder Garrett Wittels — but was effective the next four frames, allowing just four more hits and no additional runs.

The Clones put only three runners in scoring position the entire game, once in the fifth on a double by designated hitter Alexander Sanchez, again in the sixth after third baseman Dimas Ponce hit a single and advanced to second on a ground out, and again in eighth when second baseman Juan Carlos Gamboa singled on a bunt and then took second on a wild pitch.

The Muckdogs sealed their win with another run in the bottom of the eights, after third baseman Patrick Wisdom hit a ground ball single off Clones closer Tyler Vanderheiden. First baseman David Washington then dropped a fly ball into to send Wisdom home.

Cyclones shortstop Philip Evans drew a walk to open the ninth, but the next three batters failed to reach base, ending the game.

The Clones are one game behind the Hudson Valley Renegades for the top spot in the McNamara division of the NY–Penn League.

The Cyclones are home again at MCU Park [1904 Surf Ave. at W. 17th Street in Coney Island, (718) 449–8497,] on Aug. 1 at 7 pm as they take on the Connecticut Tigers.
