Cathy Colby started the night with a rendition of the National Anthem that would have made Captain Americasmile. Errors were the ValleyCats kryptonite, as 3 of the Muckdogs 6 runs were unearned. Tri-City started hot, as they scored 2 in the top of the first, but Hector Hernandez got angry and turned into the Incredible Hulk and got out of the inning. Bruce Wayne couldn’t buy a hit for the ValleyCats, as they had 3 all night, and only 1 after the 2nd inning. Superman himself couldn’t hit Danny Miranda in the bottom of the ninth, as Miranda picked up his 6th save of the season.
Cesar Valera’s web rivaled that of Spiderman’s, as he made several fine plays at short. Nick Martini, Garrett Wittels, and Mike O’Neill did their best Flash impressions as they all successfully stole bases on the night. David Medina led the Muckdogs with 2 hits and showed Thor like strength with a double off the wall.
Nicholas Tropeano took the loss for the ValleyCats, as the Muckdogs stormed him for 4 runs. John Hinson was the only Mighty Man on a team of Mighty Mice; he had 1 hit, 2 runs scored and a RBI. Miles Hambline looked like a Robin with no Batman, as he struggled at the plate striking out 3 times.
The Muckdogs finish the series with the ValleyCats tomorrow at 7:05 with post-game fireworks presented by Batavia Downs Casino.
