ValleyCats fall again; lost 7 of 8

Updated: Tuesday, August 26 2014, 11:51 PM EDT

Troy, NY - The Tri-City ValleyCats may have clinched the Stedler Division on Monday, but they continue not to look like a New York-Penn League championship contender.

On Tuesday, they lost for the seventh time in their last eight games, 2-1, to Vermont at Joe Bruno Stadium.  Lake Monsters starting pitcher worked six brilliant innings, allowing only a Mott Hyde line drive single in the 5th.

Tri-City reliever Randall Fant allowed an RBI double to John Nogowski in the 7th which turned out to be the winning run.

Vermont centerfielder J.P. Sportman, of Schenectady, went 1-4 with a single.

Tuesday was "Track Night" at The Joe.  And so the ValleyCats wore specially designed uniform tops that resembled silks worn by the jockeys at Saratoga Race Course.  The new look did nothing to help the outcome for Tri-City. 

The ValleyCats will try to salvage their series finale Wednesday night, with only six games remaining in the regular season.
