Cyclones 4

Hudson Valley 3

June 18 at Hudson Valley

Third baseman Jhoan Urena’s lead-off homer in the ninth tied the score, sloppy play by the Renegades in the 10th led to the winning run, and Shane Bay earned his first save of the season in the Cyclones exciting come-from-behind win.

The Clones got off to a good start in this battle for first place in the heated McNamara division, when rookie sensation Amed Rosario slammed his first homer over the left-field wall in the first.

The score stayed that way until the fifth when starter Alberto Badonado, whose name has the best cadence on the team, gave up a lead-off double and a run.

Baldonado gave way to Brandon Welch with two outs in the sixth, but sloppy play behind him led to two unearned runs for the Renegades, which had a 3–2 lead going into the ninth, setting the stage for Urena’s heroics.

The win puts the Cyclones in a tie for first place in the division with a 4–2 record. More importantly, the hated Staten Island Yankees are a game back, at a measly 3–3.

The Brooks are back in Hudson Valley tonight at 6:05, and if you can’t make it, you can take in the game the old-school way — by listening — live at
