Hudson Valley 5

Cyclones 4

Aug. 7 in Hudson Valley

Brooklyn batters overcame a two-run deficit in the top of the ninth, tieing it up at 4, before handing Hudson Valley the sweep in the bottom frame when reliever Ronald Sanchez allowed a single that plated the game-winning run after throwing for just one-third of an inning.

The Cyclones’s late-game burst of momentum came with help from Wagner Lagrange — who singled in Walter “Rabbi” Rasquin, who had singled and moved to second on a base hit — and Brian Sharp, who knocked a sacrifice fly that brought in Carlos Cortes after he singled and reached third on Lagrange’s base hit, to tie it at 4 in the last inning.

But Sanchez, who replaced Ezequiel Zabaleta in the bottom of the ninth, couldn’t fend off Hudson Valley’s batters, and with one out gave up a base hit to Renegade Bryce Brown that brought in Adrian Rondon, who had singled and reached second on a wild pitch from Sanchez, ending the game at 5–4.

Brooklyn got out in front early, scoring two in the fourth when Anthony Dirocie tripled to plate Lagrange and later scored on a fielding error by Hudson Valley first baseman Jacson McGowan.

But the Renegades quickly caught up — and then some — scoring four in the bottom half of the inning.

The Cyclones return from the road for a fresh start tonight, taking on the Connecticut Tigers at 7 pm at MCU Park.
