Cyclones 4
Renegades 5

Thursday, Sept. 3 at Hudson Valley

The now-second place Brooklyn Cyclones fell deeper behind the hated Staten Island Yankees with a heartbreaking bottom-of-the-ninth loss to the Hudson Valley Renegades.

The goat in this disaster was usually reliable reliever Mike Powers, who entered the game with the Clones clinging to a 4–3 lead.

Powers got the first out, but then yielded a single, a walk and another single to tie the game. The Renegades won on a SAC fly.

This game could have easily gone the other way, what with the Cyclones tying the game in the eighth and then going ahead in the top of the ninth on Jordany Valdespin’s one-out RBI triple. The Clones could’ve blown it open, but Matt Gaski grounded into a double-play.

And in the eighth, the Cyclones had loaded the bases with one out, but ended up only getting the one run on a Sam Honeck SAC fly.

The Cyclones have lost two in a row while the Yankees have won 13 straight to take a one-and-a-half-game McNamara Division lead. True, the Cyclones have already clinched a playoff spot, but would love to beat their hated division rivals with just four games to play.
