Cyclones delay ValleyCats' celebration

Michael Conforto had two hits and three RBI, and the Brooklyn Cyclones scored eight runs in the first two innings to rout the Tri-City ValleyCats, 10-1, Sunday in the New York-Penn League.

The loss, coupled with the Connecticut Tigers’ 8-2 win over the Hudson Valley Renegades, prevented the defending NYPL-champion ’Cats

(43-25) from clinching the Stedler Division title. The ’Cats have a seven-game lead over the Tigers. Each team has nine games remaining.

The ’Cats grabbed a 1-0 lead in the top of the first when Jason Martin scored on a wild pitch. The lead didn’t last long.

The Cyclones (38-30) took a 3-1 lead in the first inning against starter Jeffrey Gause, who lasted only a third of an inning. Conforto made it 1-0 with an RBI single. Tyler Moore had a two-run single to chase Gause.

The ’Cats begin their final Joseph L. Bruno Stadium homestand of the season tonight at 7 when they host the Vermont Lake Monsters. The Lake Monsters are in through Wednesday, and then the Cyclones come to The Joe on Thursday for a three-game series.
