Friday, June 24 at Hudson Valley
This is the kind of loss that is really going to make manager Wally Backman mad.
The Cyclones went into the bottom of the ninth winning 3–1, and left Hudson Valley with a 4–3 loss, as reliever Johan Figuereo had a complete and utter meltdown.
Figuereo (0-1, 7.36 ERA) gave up two singles and two doubles, blowing the save and then earning the loss.
And it all started so well for the Cyclones, scoring three in the third thanks to Taylor Freeman’s homer, a triple by hot hottie Darrell Ceciliani and a Jeff Flagg RBI single.
Starter Angel Cuan was effective in his five innings of work, giving up one run and three hits, but striking out four.
The loss dropped the Clones to 5–3, but still kept the team in first place over the Renegades.
