Nicco Blank was a tough-luck loser in the Cyclones loss to the Renegades on Friday night.

Blank gave up two hits in five innings, but allowed three runs. He didn’t allow a hit over the first four innings, but gave up a first-inning run because of two walks and a wild pitch.

Vinny Siena continued his hot hitting with an run-scoring single to tie the game in the fifth.

Enmanuel Zabala followed with a single but Siena was thrown out at third. The Cyclones were held hitless over the final four innings.

Hudson Valley took the lead back in the bottom of the fifth on two singles with a wild pitch from Blank mixed in.

Jose Garcia made the line error for the Clones, but it was costly. With Jose Paez attempting to steal second, Garcia’s throwing error allowed Paez to advance to third. Paez scored on a sac fly to make it 3–1.

Craig Missigman took over in the sixth and surrendered a run-scoring double to Hector Montes.

Missigman pitched a scoreless seventh, and Corey Taylor followed with a scoreless eighth.

The Cyclones host Williamsport on Independence Day. The 6 pm game will be followed by postgame fireworks.


The Cyclones and Renegades must have had early dinner plans, finishing in two hours and seven minutes.
