Monday, July 20, at Vermont
The three-game winning streak is over, thanks to an implosion in the fourth inning, when Vermont scored five runs off the usually unhittable Brandon Moore (4-1, 1.32 ERA).
With Vermont already leading 1–0, Moore got himself in trouble by throwing a bunted ball into the outfield, allowing a run. Then he gave up runs on a single, a double and a groundout to end the scoring.
Vermont added runs in the sixth and seventh.
The Cyclones got two runs in the seventh — one on a SAC fly by Justin Garber and the other on a wild pitch.
The team got just five hits on the night — and made three errors.
The win kept the Cyclone lead over the streaking Hudson Valley Renegades at 2-1/2 games, thanks to a Renegade loss — that team’s first in nine games. And watch out for the hated Staten Island Yankees, just 3-1/2 games back thanks to a nine-game winning streak.
