Cyclones in several high-scoring baseball games this week
The Denver Cyclones boys’ baseball team led the Hudson Pirates in a home field battle 2-0 at the end of the 6th inning during their regular season game June 13.

The Pirates came back with two runs in the 7th inning to tie the game 2-2 and force the game into an 8th inning where Hudson scored 4 unanswered runs to win the contest 6-2.

Against Columbus Catholic

Playing again at home, June 16, the Cyclones fought a high-scoring battle against Columbus Catholic, with over the half the runs for both teams coming in the first inning.

The Sailors started out with a fabulous 5-run first inning, but the Cyclones matched them run for run with five men scoring in the bottom of the first to tie the game 5-5. In the second inning, Columbus inched ahead with a run, to push the score to 6-5 their advantage. A scoreless third inning lead to another run for the Sailors in the fourth, giving them a 7-5 advantage.

Again the Cyclones were not to be outdone, matching the Sailors’ score with two more runs in the fourth, then adding three more runs in the fifth inning. This put the Cyclones at their winning score of 10, despite the Sailor’s lone run in the sixth, giving Columbus a final score of 8.

Against Union

The next day, the Cyclones hosted Union for an even higher-scoring game, but the home team came up one run behind the Knights, 10-9.

Denver scored six runs in the fourth inning, holding Union scoreless until the fifth, when the Knights brought in 3 runs. Denver scored their final 3 runs in the sixth inning, followed by a wild seven-run inning in the bottom of the sixth by Union leading to the final 10-9 score after both teams failed to bring in a run in the final 7th inning.

The Cyclones are now 4-14 for the season. They were scheduled to play at Dike-New Hartford June 20 and will host Grundy Center at the Denver Athletic Complex at 7 p.m. today, Wednesday, June 22.

Post-season play will begin Saturday, July 2 with the first round of Districts. Denver is in District 12 of Class 2A in baseball.
