Today’s news:

Demoralizing loss to the Renegades

Renegades 3

Cyclones 2

Monday, Aug. 2 at MCU Park

The Cyclones wasted enough chances to win two games, thanks to some bad base-running and a costly error, ending the win streak at six.

The Clones got on the board first, with a run in the third on Cody Holliday’s triple.

But after that, the Renegades combined great pitching and timely hitting into a crisp win.

The pride of Hudson Valley scored two in the sixth on a line-drive, just-over-the-fence homer, then added a run in the sixth, thanks to Holliday’s two-base throwing error.

The Cyclones loaded the bases with one out in the seventh, but James Schroeder got doubled-off second on Ryland Sandoval’s popup.

And Brian Harrison’s pinch-hit double in the ninth put runners on second and third with one out, but Holliday grounded out and Sandoval struck out to end the game.

Darrell Ceciliani — who is trying to become the first Cyclone to hit .400 — went 1-for-4, dropping his league-leading average to .387.

The next Cyclones home game is Wednesday night at 7 pm against the Batavia Muckdogs at MCU Park [1904 Surf Ave. at W. 19th Street in Coney Island, (718) 449-8497]. For info, visit www.brooklyncyclones.com.
