Cyclones 7

Hudson Valley 0

July 1 in Hudson Valley

Tyler Badamo allowed one hit in seven innings to pick up his first win of the year in Brooklyn’s triumph.

Nic Wilson’s leadoff single in the third was the only hiccup for Badamo, who pitched to the minimum 21 batters. Wilson was erased on a double play.

Natanael Ramos and Pedro Perez each hit their first home runs of the season for the Cyclones.

Perez was inserted as a pinch-hitter and made Tom Gamboa happy with a dinger to left-center field.

Tucker Tharp, Michael Bernal, and David Thompson each had two hits. Bernal also scored twice.

Hudson Valley cost themselves with five errors, while Brooklyn played mistake-free baseball.

The Cyclones return to MCU Park for a 7 pm start against Hudson Valley tonight.

I’m going. Are you?
