The Clones pitching staff blanked the Hudson Valley Renegades at home in Coney Island on Monday night, continuing the team’s winning streak and once again lifting them to the top of the McNamara division.
Righty Luis Mateo picked up his second win of the season with another exceptional outing, striking out seven batters in six innings and allowing just two hits and one walk. The bullpen showed similar strength, leaving the Baby Rays hitless for the rest of the game, with reliever Paul Sewald striking out three with no walks, and closer Tyler Vanderhein getting the save despite walking Renegades left fielder Marty Gantt and a pitching error that let center fielder Joel Caminero reach base.
First baseman Cole Frenzel put up two of the Clones’ three runs, advancing to home on a second inning balk by Renegades pitcher Taylor Guerrieri and again in the eighth on a single by right fielder Eudy Pina that also helped catcher Kevin Plawecki complete a circuit around the bases — Pina’s fourth hit of the night.
