O-Tigers lose series finale at Brooklyn
John Murrian had an RBI double in the sixth inning Sunday, but the Oneonta Tigers fell, 2-1, in a New York-Penn League game at Brooklyn.
The O-Tigers, held to four hits, head into the league All-Star break with seven losses in their last 10 games. Oneonta (29-25) trails Lowell (31-25) by one game in the Stedler Division standings. The Spinners lost, 4-2, to Mahoning Valley on Sunday.
The State College Spikes will host the NY-Penn All-Star Game at 7:15 p.m. Tuesday. Oneonta received a fifth All-Star selection for the American League affiliates over the weekend as Carmelo Jaime will replace Mahoning Valley's Kyle Smith at shortstop. O-Tigers General Manager Andrew Weber said Smith is injured.
Jaime joins first baseman Rawley Bishop, outfielder Michael Rockett, catcher Murrian and pitcher Kenny Faulk.
The two-day All-Star break starts today. The O-Tigers then return home to play Williamsport for a three-game set beginning at 7:05 p.m. Wednesday at Damaschke Field.
Brooklyn opened the scoring Sunday in the first inning. With one out, Jake Eigsti singled to left and moved to second when Sam Honeck grounded out to first. Nicholas Santomauro then doubled to center, scoring Eigsti for a 1-0 lead.
The Cyclones (36-21) made it 2-0 in the third. Eigsti doubled to left and scored when Honeck doubled to right. Oneonta starting pitcher Jose Diaz (0-1) got out of further trouble by striking out Santomauro, Scott Grimes and Dock Doyle. All three struck out swinging.
Diaz threw five innings, striking out five and giving up two runs on seven hits and two walks. Michael Torrealba pitched a scoreless sixth and Nathan Newman threw the final two innings. Neither allowed a hit.
Rockett started Oneonta's rally in the sixth, lining a single to right with one out. He moved to second when Bishop grounded out to second, then scored on Murrian's double to center. Murrian's double marked his 13th this season.
Oneonta failed to put a runner on base the rest of the game.
Brooklyn right-hander Wesley Wrenn (2-0) went seven strong innings to earn the pitching win. He gave up four hits and struck out six.
Tigers 2, Cyclones 1
Keith Hernandez homered with two out in the top of the 10th inning Saturday as Oneonta earned a victory at Brooklyn.
Hernandez, who hit his second home run this season, finished 2-for-4 with two RBIs.
Wade Kapteyn earned his second save, striking out one in the 10th. Although Luis Rivera reached base after getting hit by Kapteyn with one out, he failed to advance past first.
Kenny Faulk, who entered with eight saves, allowed a one-out, ninth-inning home run to pinch-hitter Scott Grimes. His shot tied it at 1.
Faulk then walked Alex Gregory and gave up a double to Dock Doyle, putting runners on second and third for the Cyclones. Faulk intentionally walked Robbie Shields to load the bases before striking out Justin Garber swinging and getting Jake Eigsti to ground into a fielder's choice. Jaime fielded Eigsti's grounder to shortstop and threw to second to force out Shields.
Although he blew his third save of the season, Faulk earned the pitching victory to improve to 2-1.
Brooklyn reliever Matias Carrillo Jr. started the 10th inning and got Wade Gaynor to fly out to right. After striking out Alexis Espinoza swinging, Carrillo allowed a homer to Hernandez that gave the O-Tigers a 2-1 lead.
Jose Siso pitched five innings for Oneonta, allowing two hits. He struck out three and walked three. Michael Morrison followed with two hitless innings, striking out two and walking two. Jose Ortega pitched a perfect eighth for Oneonta, which snapped a scoreless tie in the fifth.
Gaynor walked and moved to second when Espinoza grounded out to shortstop. Hernandez then hit his seventh double this season to score Gaynor for a 1-0 edge.
Hernandez moved to third on a wild pitch but was stranded. Mark Cohoon got Matt Mansilla to ground out to third and struck out Chris Sedon swinging

Sanz on the mark
By P.J. Harmer
ONEONTA _ Luis Sanz gave Oneonta's offense a break Wednesday night.
Sanz threw a four-hitter as the Tigers returned from the two-day All-Star break with a 2-0 New York-Penn League victory over the Williamsport Crosscutters in front of an announced crowd of 505.
Right-hander Sanz (5-2) struck out nine and walked three for his first nine-inning shutout at the professional level.
Wednesday also marked his second straight complete game. On Aug. 13 at the State College Spikes, Sanz threw all seven innings in the first game of a doubleheader that Oneonta won, 10-1.
Sanz, who has not allowed a run in 14 innings, hit the strike zone 68 times during his 113-pitch performance Wednesday.
"I never imagined throwing a nine-inning shutout tonight," Sanz said through interpreter and pitching coach Jorge Cordova. "The only thing I cared about was to get the first hitter out and stay away from the three-ball count and work inning-by-inning."
Sanz helped the O-Tigers (30-25) pull into a first-place tie with the Lowell Spinners (31-26) atop the Stedler Division. The Spinners lost, 3-1, to visiting Auburn. Oneonta and Williamsport (33-25) continue their three-game series at 7:05 tonight, when Roberto Clemente Jr. is scheduled to throw out the ceremonial first pitch.
"This is a great way to start the end of the year with a close race with Lowell right now," said Oneonta first baseman Rawley Bishop, whose one-out, RBI single in the sixth gave the O-Tigers a 1-0 lead. "We're off to a good start."
Sanz was perfect through 3 1/3 innings before walking Adam Buschini on four pitches. That didn't seem to bother Sanz, who then got Leandro Castro to fly out to center and struck out Jeremy Barnes swinging to end the fourth.
"After his second start of the year, to me, he's been one of the top three or four pitchers in the league," O-Tigers manager Howard Bushong said of Sanz, whose ERA dropped from 3.22 to 2.79. "He's been outstanding. Luis knows how to pitch. He gets into that comfort level and he's confident in himself. He's been fantastic for us. Tonight was as good as you can ask for."
Anthony Hewitt got Williamsport's first hit with one out in the fifth, singling to left on an 0-1 pitch, but Sanz picked him off with a sharp throw to first.
"He was really quick and the throws were right on target every time we needed them," Bishop said of Sanz, who nearly threw out two others at first. "He was shutting down the running game pretty well."
Sanz hit a couple of rough patches, though.
In a scoreless battle with Williamsport starter Korey Noles (2-2), Sanz gave up a leadoff single to David Doss in the sixth. After Michael Dabbs flied out to left, Zachary Collier singled down the third-base line to put runners on first and second.
Buschini then popped out to shortstop Jim Gulliver and, after a double-steal put runners on second and third, Sanz struck out Castro swinging to end the inning.
"I wanted to hit the spots (catcher Keith Hernandez) asked for," Sanz said of his outing. "I wanted to throw a first-pitch strike and stay away from a three-ball count. That was the deal tonight. I think that was a success tonight."
Hernandez, who also caught Sanz last year in the Gulf Coast League, said his batterymate was on all night.
"Usually when we get together, it's like clockwork," Hernandez said. "We work really well together. I know what he wants to throw and if does shake me (off), then I know exactly what he wants to go to. So it's pretty easy. It feels good sometimes.
"He had all his pitches working tonight," he continued. "We worked on keeping batters off-balance. We didn't want to stay with something too long and let them get adjusted to it. We just worked everybody in and out with changeups, curveballs and fastballs."
Noles wasn't as successful as Sanz in the sixth.
Jamie Johnson led off with a double down the right-field line and moved to third on a sacrifice bunt from Michael Rockett that landed between the pitcher's mound and the third-base line. Bishop then singled through the left side, easily scoring Johnson for a 1-0 lead.
"All I had to do was really put the ball in play," Bishop said. "They were playing in and the grass was wet, so any groundball is really going to get through there. I was just trying to put the ball in play hard and luckily, it turned out for a base hit and an RBI."
Williamsport's Francisco Murillo led off the eighth with walk, moved to second on a sacrifice bunt by Doss and made it to third on a groundout by Dabbs. Sanz then got Collier to ground out to short to end the threat.
Rockett capped the scoring in the eighth after reaching base on a one-out fielding error by third baseman Darin Ruf. Rockett later scored on a wild pitch from Justin Beal.
Sanz walked Buschini to lead off the ninth but got Castro to ground into a 6-3 double play and struck out Barnes looking.
"This is the first and the best one because I learned a lot from this game," Sanz said of where he would rank Wednesday's game in his four-year career. "I never thought to throw a complete game. I wanted to go inning-by-inning and I got stronger inning-by-inning."

After taking three steps forward, the Oneonta Tigers took two steps back.
The Lowell Spinners swept a two-game series against visiting Oneonta over the weekend to take a two-game lead on the Tigers in the New York-Penn League's Stedler Division.
Oneonta fell, 5-2, on Saturday before suffering a 12-2 rout by the Spinners on Sunday.
The Tigers (32-27) followed last week's NY-Penn All-Star break with a three-game sweep of the Williamsport Crosscutters to force a tie atop the Stedler with Lowell (35-26).
Oneonta visits the Staten Island Yankees (34-26) for a series that starts at 7 tonight. The two teams will play three full games after completing one that was suspended by rain Aug. 9 at Damaschke Field. That game will resume with the score tied at 6 in the bottom of the 11th and Oneonta's Rawley Bishop batting with runners at first and second and none out.
Eric Knighton, the Tigers assistant general manager, said tonight's regularly scheduled game is slated for seven innings. Luis Sanz (5-2, 2.79 ERA) will start tonight's regularly scheduled game for Oneonta. Sanz has thrown two straight complete games _ a seven-inning, 10-1 victory at State College on Aug. 13 and a nine-inning, 2-0 home win over Williamsport on Wednesday. He has not allowed a run in his last 14 innings.
Nathan Newman (2-1, 2.79) will start for on Tuesday, followed by Clemente Mendoza (4-3, 3.04) on Wednesday.
Staten Island is second in the McNamara Division _ five games behind the Brooklyn Cyclones (40-22) _ and holds a 1 1/2-game edge on the Tigers in the NY-Penn's wild-card standings. The three division winners (McNamara, Pinckney and Stedler) and one wild-card team will advance to the playoffs, which will follow the last game of the regular season Sept. 6.
Mahoning Valley (40-22) leads the Pinckney Division by seven games over Williamsport (33-29), which is two games behind in the wild-card chase.
Spinners 12, Tigers 2
Lowell took control with a four-run first inning off losing pitcher Jose Diaz (0-2), who failed to get an out.
Diaz walked three and gave up an RBI single to Ryan Westmoreland and an RBI double to Michael Almanzar. He left with the bases loaded.
Reliever Kevan Hess then allowed a sacrifice fly to Daniel Butler and an RBI single to Joantoni Garcia as the Spinners took a 4-0 lead. Lowell then scored five runs against Hess over the next two innings. Hess gave up eight hits, walked one and struck out three.
Oneonta scored in the fifth, after winning pitcher Jose Alvarez (7-3) hit leadoff batter Wade Gaynor. Carmelo Jaime followed with an RBI triple to center, cutting Oneonta's deficit to 9-1.
Lowell responded with three runs in the bottom of the inning, highlighted by a two-run double by Drew Hedman.
Matt Mansilla scored on an RBI fielder's choice by Bishop to cap the scoring in the eighth.
Jaime finished with two of Oneonta's three hits. Espinoza had the other one.
Spinners 5, Tigers 2
Wilfredo Pichardo and Joantoni Garcia each had two hits and two RBIs to lead host Lowell, which scored one run in each of the third, fourth and fifth innings to take a 3-0 lead.
Oneonta pulled to 3-2 on back-to-back RBI doubles from Bishop and John Murrian, but Lowell padded its lead in the eighth with a two-run double from Joantoni Garcia.
Brooklyn's Brandon Moore threw a seven-inning no-hitter Sunday in a 1-0 victory at Aberdeen in the opening game of a doubleheader. Moore (6-2, 2.15 ERA) struck out six and walked three.
Sunday's game marked Moore's first outing since a no-decision Aug. 11, when he pitched 7 2/3 innings in a 4-2 victory at Mahoning Valley. The Cyclones won the second game against Aberdeen, 5-1.
Moore hasn't faced Oneonta this season, but Brooklyn visits Damaschke Field for a three-game series from Thursday through Saturday.

Skid ends for O-Tigers
Even as the Oneonta Tigers ended a season-long eight-game losing skid, their chances of making the New York-Penn League playoffs took another hit.
Michael Rockett's RBI triple in the bottom of the sixth inning snapped a tie and the O-Tigers beat the Hudson Valley Renegades, 3-1, Monday in front of an announced crowd of 327 at Damaschke Field. The attendance is a season-low.
However, Staten Island's 5-3 victory at Vermont, eliminated the O-Tigers from the NY-Penn wild-card chase. Oneonta, which has seven games remaining, is 7 1/2 games behind the Yankees (43-27) in the wild-card standings.
The O-Tigers (34-33), who hadn't won since beating Williamsport, 3-2, Aug. 21, still have a slim chance at reaching the playoffs, trailing Lowell by 5 1/2 games in the Stedler Division.
Following the final game of a three-game set with visiting Hudson Valley (33-36) at 7:05 tonight, the O-Tigers host the Spinners for three games, including a double header Wednesday and their home finale Thursday. Oneonta finishes the season with three games at Hudson Valley on Friday-Sunday.
Lowell (40-28) beat Brooklyn on Monday, 8-5, lowering its elimination number to two in the division. That means any combination of Lowell victories and Oneonta losses that adds up to two will eliminate the O-Tigers from the playoff chase.
Three Oneonta pitchers combined to hold Hudson Valley to seven hits. Nathan Newman started and went 4 1/3 innings, giving up one run on four hits. He struck out three and walked three.
Michael Torrealba (2-1), who earned the victory, followed with 2 2/3 innings of relief, giving up two hits and striking out one. Jose Ortega threw the final two innings, earning his first save. He gave up one hit and struck out two.
Hudson Valley opened the scoring in the first.
Christopher Murrill walked, but Newman got Dustin Biell to line out to left and Tyler Bortnick to ground out to third, the latter moving Murrill to second.
Eli Sonoqui then singled to left, scoring Murrill to make it 1-0.
Oneonta tied it in the second when Alexis Espinoza homered to center with one out. It was Espinoza's second homer of the season.
Carmelo Jaime got things going in the sixth with a bunt single up the first-base line with one out. Rockett then tripled to right to score Jaime and give the O-Tigers a 2-1 lead.
Oneonta closed the scoring in the seventh. With one out, Luis Palacios doubled to left and scored on Matt Mansilla's single to left.

It's all over
It's hard to believe that one month ago, the Oneonta Tigers held a 3 1/2-game lead in the New York-Penn League's Stedler Division.
In a collapse as sudden as it was complete, the O-Tigers were eliminated from playoff consideration Wednesday with a 13-0 loss to the Lowell Spinners in the first game of a doubleheader before an announced 423 fans at Damaschke Field.
Oneonta also the lost, 6-2, in the second game to Lowell, which won the Stedler Division for the second consecutive season.
The doubleheader sweep made it three straight losses for Oneonta, which has dropped 11 of its last 12 games. The Tigers (34-36) trail the Spinners (42-29) by 7 1/2 games with four games left.
Following a doubleheader split at Tri-City on Aug. 3, the Tigers' record stood at 26-17 _ 3 1/2 games clear of the Spinners, who were 23-21 at the time. Since then, Oneonta has gone 7-19 and Lowell has gone 19-8.
The Tigers and Spinners were tied atop the Stedler Division after Oneonta swept a three-game series from visiting Williamsport that was capped by a 3-2 victory Aug. 21. Oneonta was 32-25 and Lowell was 33-26.
The Spinners took the division lead for keeps with a 5-2 victory over Oneonta the following night. They beat the Tigers the next night, 12-2, losses that started a season-long eight-game skid for Oneonta.
Over their last 12 games, Oneonta has been outscored, 71-15, and, 29-2, over its last three games. The Tigers haven't exceeded three runs during over their last dozen games and have been shut out four times.
Lowell wasted no time in Wednesday's first game, scoring 11 times on 12 hits over the first two innings off Oneonta starter Jose Siso (0-3).
Third baseman Wade Gaynor (throwing) and right fielder Michael Rockett (fielding) made errors during Lowell's five-run first inning.
Wilfred Pichardo singled to lead off and stole second. Pichardo scored on Derrik Gibson's infield single to third and advanced to second on Gaynor's throwing error. Christopher McGuiness' infield single to first scored Gibson to make it 2-0.
Michael Almanzar followed with a run-scoring triple to center.
After Drew Hedman popped out to third and Alex Hassan walked, Ronald Bermudez singled to right to score Almanzar. Hassan went to third on Rockett's fielding error.
Kenneth Roque capped the scoring on an RBI single to left.
Doubles by McGuiness, Almanzar and Chia-Chu Chen helped Lowell to six more runs in the second, when the Spinners had six hits and drew two walks off Siso.
Jamie Johnson had two of Oneonta's five hits off winning pitcher Jose Alvarez (8-3), who lowered his league-leading ERA to 1.52 with his second shutout of the season. Alvarez struck out six and walked one.
In the second game, the Tigers finished with three hits off four Lowell pitchers.
Oneonta did end a streak of 20 consecutive scoreless innings in the second game. Matthew Mansilla's RBI single in the seventh inning Monday scored the final run of the Tigers' 3-1 victory over visiting Hudson Valley on Monday.
Oneonta lost the following night, 10-0, to Hudson Valley before the 13-0 loss to Lowell in the first game Wednesday.
Finally, in the fourth inning of the second game, Oneonta scored twice off reliever Alex Wilson.
Rockett and Alexis Espinoza had back-to-back singles with one out, the latter moving Rockett to third. Rockett and Espinoza then executed a double-steal, with Rockett scoring to cut the Tigers' deficit to 3-1. Espinoza advanced to third on catcher Christian Vazquez's throwing error and scored Eric Roof's groundout to first.
But Lowell answered with three runs in the top of the fifth off Mike LaLuna.
LaLuna hit McGuiness with a pitch with one out. William Holmes then singled to right to send McGuiness to second. Drew Hedman's double to center scored McGuiness and sent Holmes to third. Both runners scored on Hassan's triple to center to make it 6-2.
Johnson's two-out triple in the third inning accounted for Oneonta's other hit.
The Tigers close out their home schedule at 7:05 tonight against Lowell. They finish the season with three games at Hudson Valley, beginning Friday.
Lowell begins play in the NY-P playoffs Tuesday.

O-Tigers flop in 10th
All that work for nothing.
After battling back to tie the score and send the game to extra innings Thursday, the Oneonta Tigers allowed four runs in the top of the 10th inning and dropped a 9-5 New York-Penn League game in front of an announced crowd of 606 at Damaschke Field.
Drew Hedman's RBI double highlighted the inning for Lowell (42-30), which clinched the Stedler Division title in the opening game of a doubleheader Wednesday night.
Oneonta (34-37) closed the home portion of its schedule Thursday. The Tigers lost four straight and seven of eight during its final homestand. The O-Tigers have lost 12 of their last 13 overall.
The Tigers finish the season with a three-game series at Hudson Valley, beginning at 7:05 tonight and concluding at 7:05 p.m. Sunday.
Lowell snapped a 5-all tie with a big 10th inning.
Oneonta's Wade Kapteyn relieved Michael Morrison to start the inning and walked Kenneth Roque, who moved to second on a sacrifice bunt by Alex Hassan. Hedman then doubled to right, scoring Roque to make it 6-5.
The Spinners took advantage of back-to-back errors by shortstop Jimmy Gulliver to score another run. Drew Dominquez capped the scoring with a two-run single.
Rawley Bishop had a two-out single in the bottom of the 10th, but Jordan Flasher struck out Alexis Espinoza looking to end the game.
The O-Tigers rallied from deficits of 3-0 and 5-2 to send the game to extras.
Oneonta scored two in the fifth to make it 3-2. Jamie Johnson walked and scored on Gulliver's triple. Gulliver then scored on Eric Roof's two-out single.
Lowell scored twice in the top of the sixth, but Oneonta rallied in the bottom half when Gulliver (3-for-6) hit a two-out, two-run double.
The Tigers tied it in the seventh as Espinoza scored when Roof reached on a fielding error by first baseman Hedman.

Tigers' rally is off base
Give the Oneonta Tigers points for creativity.
In losing their fifth straight game and for the 13th time in 14 games _ this one a 3-1 New York-Penn League setback Friday at Hudson Valley _ the O-Tigers had three runs taken off the scoreboard on a baserunning blunder by Carmelo Jaime.
Trailing by two in the sixth inning, Jaime apparently hit a three-run double with two outs that gave Oneonta a 4-3 lead.
But Hudson Valley appealed that Jaime missed first base and it was upheld by base umpire Tim Rosso.
Eric Roof walked with two outs in the sixth inning off winning pitcher Devin Fuller (4-2). John Murrian's double sent Roof to third and Luis Palacios walked to load the bases.
Jaime then hit his double that was scored as a 1-3 groundout.
The Renegades scored three times in the second inning off losing pitcher Luis Sanz (5-4).
Brett Nommensen singled with one out and advanced to third on an errant pickoff attempt by Sanz.
Mayobanex Acosta's sacrifice fly to left scored Nommensen to make it 1-0. Elias Otero followed with a single to right and scored on Bennett Davis' double to left. Christopher Murrill made it 3-0 with an RBI double to left.
Oneonta answered with a run in the top of the third. Palacios led off with a single to center and advanced to second on a one-out walk by Matthew Mansilla. Jamie Johnson's single to left loaded the bases and Jimmy Gulliver's sacrifice fly to right scored Palacios.
Rawley Bishop then walked to re-load the bases, but Michael Rockett flew to center to end the inning.
Sanz struck out four, walked two and allowed five hits over six innings. Cory Hamilton followed with two scoreless innings. He allowed two hits, one walk and struck out three.
Palacios had two Oneonta's five hits.
The Tigers (34-38) and Renegades (37-36), both out of playoff contention, finish their seasons with 7:05 p.m. games Saturday and Sunday at Hudson Valley.

Tigers shut out HV in NY-Penn finale
The Oneonta Tigers ended their season in a similar fashion to the way they started it _ with a 2-0 victory.
Clemente Mendoza and Michael Torreabla combined on a seven-hitter and the O-Tigers won their season-finale at Hudson Valley, despite getting two hits Sunday.
Oneonta opened the season with a 2-0 victory over Tri-City.
But Oneonta closed with 14 losses over its final 16 games. Before that streak started, the Tigers (35-39) were tied atop the Stedler Division with Lowell, but they finished in second place 9 1/2 games behind the Spinners (45-30), who clinched their second straight division title with a 13-0 victory at Oneonta on Sept. 2.
The Tigers failed to score more than three runs in any of the final 16 games, including a 3-2 loss to Hudson Valley on Saturday.
On Sunday, Hudson Valley starter and losing pitcher Alexander Colome (7-4) took a no-hitter into the sixth inning. With one out in the sixth, Jimmy Gulliver singled to left for Oneonta's first hit.
Gulliver went to second on Christopher Sedon's groundout to third and scored when Renegades first baseman Eli Sonoqui mishandled Jamie Johnson's grounder.
Johnson capped the scoring in the ninth with his third homer of the season _ a shot to right with one out off Jordi Amargos.
Mendoza (5-5) allowed six hits over seven innings. He struck out four and walked none.
Torreabla struck out three and walked none over two innings. He allowed one hit in earning his second save.
On Saturday, the O-Tigers took a 2-1 lead on two errors by Hudson Valley in the ninth inning. Luis Palacios reached second on a one-out fielding error by third baseman Tyler Bortnick. Eric Roof then grounded to first baseman Sonoqui, who misplayed it as Palacios scored the go-ahead run.
But Oneonta made two errors in the bottom of the inning to lose it.
Mayobanex Acosta singled to lead off against Kenny Faulk. D.J. Jones then hit a sacrifice bunt toward third and reached on Palacios' throwing error, leaving runners at first and second.
Another fielding error by Palacios on a grounder by Elias Otero loaded the bases.
Diogenes Luis followed with an RBI single to center.
After Christopher Murrill popped out to third and Dustin Biell lined out to short, Bortnick singled to left to score Jones with the winning run.
Three Hudson Valley pitchers held Oneonta to five hits. Johnson and John Murrian had two hits apiece to lead Oneonta.
