Cyclones 5

Hudson Valley 3

July 8 at Hudson Valley

David Thompson and Michael Bernal combined for seven of the Cyclones’ 10 hits in Brooklyn’s 5–3 win against Hudson Valley.

The first-place Cyclones improved to 13–5 with the win.

Gaby Almonte improved to 2–1, giving up three runs in six-and-two-thirds innings.

Brooklyn took advantage of some Hudson Valley mistakes.

Tucker Tharp walked and moved to second on a balk by Greg Maisto. Tharp scored when Thompson singled to left and Hudson Valley catcher Taylor Hawkins committed an error.

The Cyclones scored a second run on an error by Hawkins, whose pickoff attempt in the fourth inning was off the mark.

Zach Mathieu drove in a run with a single and Manuel Hilario drove in a run with a force out, giving the Cyclones a 4–0 lead in the fourth.

A throwing error by Hilario made it 4–1, but Enmanuel Zabala’s run-scoring single put Brooklyn up 5–1 in the fifth.

The Renegades mounted a rally in the sixth. Jake Cronenworth’s run-scoring single cut the lead to 5–2, and then with Craig Missigman on in relief, a throwing error by Mathieu trimmed the lead to 5–3.

Missigman escaped further trouble in the sixth and pitched a scoreless seventh.

P.J. Conlon pitched a 1-2-3 eighth and Alex Palsha pitched a 1-2-3 ninth to end the game. Palsha picked up his fourth save of the year.

The Cyclones return to Coney Island for a 7 pm start against Hudson Valley.


All 10 of the Cyclones’ hits were singles.

Vinny Siena was hitless for only the second time this season. Siena did walk in the seventh.

Oswald Caraballo entered the game as a defensive replacement and singled in his only at-bat.
