Sports

TROY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — The Tri-City ValleyCats (18-22) took the field in front of a crowd of 2,503 Jorge Posada fans, as the ‘Cats and American National gave away Jorge Posada bobbleheads to the first 1,500 in attendance of Tuesday night’s “Capital Region Baseball Heritage Night” at Joseph L. Bruno Stadium. Tuesday’s matchup with the Washington Wild Things (19-21) started at 6:30 p.m.

Tuesday’s game quickly turned into “Oscar Campos Appreciation Night” as the Tri-City utility man went four-for-four, driving four runs in, and scoring twice, including once on his first home run of the season, a two-run shot to left to put the ‘Cats ahead in the second inning. The Tri-City left fielder would end the night just a double shy of the cycle, and was unanimously elected “Player of the Game.”

Following a shortened start from Parker Kelly, the ValleyCats bullpen put together another strong outing, only surrendering two hits and one run, allowing Trey Cochran-Gill to enter the game and tack a thirteenth save on to his league-leading total.
