Batavia 4

Cyclones 2

August 10 in Batavia

Cyclones pitchers tied a season high of 15 strikeouts at Saturday night’s game, but the bats could not push past the Muckdogs, costing the Clones the first of a three-game series.

Marcos Molina got the start for the Cyclones and the Muckdogs jumped ahead in the first when two doubles gave the team a 1–0 lead. The Dogs continued the damage with a big fourth inning, scoring three more runs off Molina. It was the first time he gave up more than two earned runs in a game.

Molina pitched six innings and struck out a season-high of eleven before exiting.

The Cyclones got on the board in the sixth with the help of a Muckdog error that allowed John Mora to reach first and a wild pitch with Amed Rosario at bat that allowed Mora to advance to second. Rosario then plated Mora with a double.

The Mini-Mets scored once more the following inning, when the team’s newest addition Pedro Perez hit a single that scored Michael Bernal, who reached on a single.

Brandon Welch came in to relieve Molina in the seventh and kept the Muckdogs scoreless through two innings.

The Cyclones take on the Muckdogs again tonight upstate.
