Short-Season Thursday: Luis Mateo Has the NYP Figured Out

SSA: Hudson Valley Renegades 3, @ Brooklyn Cyclones 1 

RHP Luis Mateo was very good: 7 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 8 K. In 12 games the 22-year old has run a 2.45 ERA with a 9.4 K/BB (85 K/9 BB).

SS Philip Evans (.245/.328/.337 – 68 games) had a pair of hits.

CF Brandon Nimmo was 0-for-4 with a walk.

With the Cyclones’ loss, and the Batavia Muckdogs’ win, the Cyclones’ lead in the wild card chase is down to one with six games to play.
