The Spinners bats were hot out of the gate with Michael Osinski belting a leadoff home run in the first inning. With the first home run of his professional career, Osinski ended a home run drought for the Spinners that dated back to July 16.

Yoan Aybar reached on an error to kick off the bottom of the second then came in to score on a double from Samuel Miranda. Later in the inning with the bases loaded, Osinski singled home a pair of runs to make it a 4-0 ball game. Alexander Martinez would later come in to score after a throwing error on a Renegades pickoff attempt.

Hudson Valley struck back with a trio of runs in the top of the third to cut the lead to two. The Renegades continued their offensive assault with four more runs in the top of the fourth to take a 7-5 lead. 

Starting pitcher Yorvin Pantoja was charged for all seven runs in 3.2 innings of work while striking out three on 11 hits.

The offense cut into the lead in the bottom of the fifth when Marino Campana singled home Garrett Benge to make it 7-6.

The Renegades seemingly blew open the game in the top of the seventh with three late insurance runs off Mitchell Osnowitz to push the lead to 10-6. In 3.1 innings from Osnowitz, the struck out six, walked none, and allowed five hits. 

Looking up at a four-run deficit, Yomar Valentin led off the inning with a walk. Garrett Benge then singled to move Valentin over to third and Campana walked to load the bases. Yoan Aybar was hit by a pitch to bring in a run followed by a sac fly by Raiwinson Lameda to cut the lead to two. Samuel Miranda added a sac fly of his own to bring in Campana and make it a one-run game. With two outs Jordan Wren stuck out but was able to advance to first on a passed ball, allowing Aybar to score from third.

Ryan Oduber came in to relieve Osnowitz in the top of the eighth. He allowed one earned run on the night and would unfortunately be pegged with the loss.

With the loss the Spinners now head to Brooklyn for a three-game set with the Cyclones. Enmnauel De Jesus is scheduled to take the mound for a 6:00 p.m. first pitch.
