July 1 at Dutchess Stadium
The Clones shut out the Hudson Valley Renegades in another phenomenal night on the mound by starter Luis Mateo.
Mateo struck out six Baby Rays in six frames, giving up three hits and no walks, while racking up three 1-2-3 innings. Now 3–0 for the season, Mateo boasts an incredible 0.51 ERA.
On the offensive end, Cyclones first baseman Cole Frenzel opened the second inning with a solo homer to give the team an early lead. In the third, Renegades starter Matthew Spann pitched himself into a jam by giving up a single to Cyclones third baseman Dimas Ponce, walking shortstop Philip Evans, and plunking Frenzel. A fielding error by Renegades third baseman Felix Gonzalez let left fielder Stefan Sabol reach base and brought Ponce and Evans home.
Clones closer Tyler Vanderheiden loaded the bases in the bottom of ninth by surrendering back-to-back-to-back singles to Renegades center fielder Marty Gantt, second baseman Tommy Coyle, and catcher Luke Maile. But Cyclones right fielder Eudy Pina caught a fly ball off the bat of Hudson Valley first baseman Michael Williams, and Renegades right fielder Joel Caminero grounded into a 6-4-3 double play to end the game.
The Cyclones are home again at MCU Park [1904 Surf Ave. at W. 17th Street in Coney Island, (718) 4498497, www.brooklyncyclones.com] tonight at 7 pm as they take on the hated Hudson Valley Renegades.
