qmeme_1404872127090_825The Brooklyn Cyclones and Hudson Valley Renegades squared off for Day 2 of 4 Games in 24 Hours.

Game 1 was a packed house with numerous camps in attendance. After a quick 1-2-3 inning by Marcos Molina, Brooklyn came up to bat. With Enderson Franco on the mound, Tucker Tharp led off with a walk. With Tharp running, Amed Rosario singled to center, moving Tharp to 3rd.

Cyclones Manager Tom Gamboa pulled off a gutsy moved that had amazing results. With Jhoan Urena batting Amed Rosario stole 2nd and when Renegades Catcher Wilmer Dominguez threw to 2nd, which allowed Tharp to steal home, the 1st Cyclone to do so since Stacy Bennett  on 8/3/04. Franco got out of the inning with a 1-0 deficit.

Brooklyn would add two more in the Bottom of the 4th, thanks to a 2 run Homer by Michael Bernal that scored Michael Katz.

Marcos Molina took a no hitting into the Top of the 5th. With two out, Wilmer Dominguez singled to left, breaking up the no hitter. That would be the only hit allowed by Molina. After he got out of the inning, Josh Prevost pitched 2 perfect innings to earn the save. Molina also gave up 3 walks during the game, but struck out 6 Renegades. Enderson Franco threw a complete game, giving up 6 hits, 3 earned runs, a walk, and a homer while striking out 5.

Game 2 was on the emptier side, as all but 3 camps had filed out. This was also the Brooklyn Cyclones 1,000th game ever.

Hudson Valley jumped out to a quick 1-0 lead off Brooklyn starter Brandon Welch in the Top of the 2nd, thanks to another home run from Hunter Lockwood and Zach Marberry driving in Clayton Henning on a sacrifice fly.

The Renegades added another 2 in the Top of the 5th. Leopoldo Correa led off with a single and Zach Marberry doubled him to 3rd. Alec Sole grounded out and didn’t advance the runners. Gamboa pulled Welch for Alberto Baldonado, who gave up a sacrifice fly to Jace Conrad, scoring Correa. Baldonado got out of the inning by striking out Coty Blanchard.

The Cyclones were unable to produce any runs as they were held to just 3 hits on the day. The Cyclones fell to 14-11 on the season (.560), 4 games behind the Renegades in the McNamara Division. They are now 593-407 all time, a winning percentage of .593. A total of 5,707 were in attendance for both games.
