Aug. 7 in Mahoning Valley
The towering righty Martires Arias came out throwing on target in his Cyclones debut on Thursday night, helping the Mini-Mets shut out the Scrappers.
No one scored until the fourth inning when Michael Conforto hit a double that started a rally. Jhoan Urena plated Conforto with a single to center field.
Arias allowed just two hits in six innings, throwing six strikeouts, keeping up the solid pitching he showed with the Kingsport Mets, where he had a 0.50 earned-run average.
The score remained 1–0 until the top of the eighth, when the Clones tacked on three more. John Mora opened it up with a bloop single. Amed Rosario followed with a single, Conforto batted a run in, a sacrifice fly by Urena got Rosario across the plate, and Tomas Nido ripped a shot to center field that scored Conforto for the final run of the game.
Left-handed pitcher Brad Weick and righty Mike Hepple took their turns on the mound to close out the shutout.
The Cyclones take on Mahoning Valley in Ohio one more time tonight before heading to Batavia, New York to face the Muckdogs.
