State College 4

Cyclones 3

July 11 at State College

The Cyclones rapped nine hits but still fell short as the Spikes took the rubber match of a three-game set.

Clones starter Carlos Valdez put his teammates in a hole early, giving up two runs on a double in the bottom of the first, but the offense answered with three runs of its own in the top of the second — thanks mainly to State College miscues, including a passed ball and hit batsman, that helped score the runs.

The Spikes tied the game in the fifth when Luis Cruz walked to lead off the inning and eventually scored on a single.

Gaither Bumgardner gave up just three hits in three innings of relief, but was charged with the loss when he gave up the deciding run in the seventh.

The road trip moves to Connecticut tonight, where our boys look to turn things around against the Tigers. Game time is 7:05.
