FISHKILL, N.Y. - The Mahoning Valley Scrappers had a frustrating time in their doubleheader against the Hudson Valley Renegades on Monday, allowing two runs in the bottom of the seventh inning to lose 3-2 in Game 1, then allowing four runs in the final three innings in a 10-6 victory in the second contest.
The Scrappers took a 2-1 lead in the top of the sixth as Evan Frazar hit his first home run of the season.
Hudson Valley won the game in the last inning as Leonardo Reginatto singled to center field to score Ryan Dunn and Thomas Coyle against Scrappers reliever Cody Penny (0-2).
Reginatto drove in all three runs for the Renegades.
The loss wasted an outstanding effort by starter Jake Sisco, who allowed three hits and one run (which was unearned) in six innings. He walked three and struck out four.
In Game 2, the Scrappers scored five runs in the third inning to take a 7-2 lead. Joe Sever, Charlie Valerio and Mitch Nilsson had RBI singles and Jairo Kelly doubled in two more runs in the inning.
Mahoning Valley added three more runs in the fourth for a 10-2 advantage, as Joseph Wendle doubled home Aaron Siliga.
Later in the inning, Hudson Valley reliever Kris Carlson walked Richard Stock with the bases loaded to plate Wendle and Nilsson grounded into a double play that brought in Sever.
Mahoning Valley starter Luis DeJesus allowed one earned run and five hits in five innings with five strikeouts. He improved to 3-0 with a 1.36 ERA this season.
