Saturday, June 25 at Aberdeen
For the second night in a row, the Cyclones blew a game in the home team’s last at-bat of the night.
On Friday night, Johan Figuereo blew the save and got the loss in Hudson Valley. On Saturday night, the villain was reliever Ryan Fraser, who was called upon to preserve a 2–1 Cyclone lead after a leadoff hit in the eighth inning.
Fraser promptly walked the bases loaded, then gave up a SAC fly to tie the score and a single to get the loss.
That performance spoiled a Cyclone comeback. Down 1–0, the team exploded for two runs in the sixth with singles by Cody Holliday, hot hottie Darrell Ceciliani, Jeff Flagg and William Cherry.
Starter Wes Wrenn was solid, striking out four in his six innings of work.
The loss dropped the Cyclones into terra incognita: second place, one-half game behind the Hudson Valley Renegades.
