Troy, NY - The Tri-City ValleyCats grabbed a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning, and then watched the rest of Tuesday's game fall apart. Connecticut ralled for an 18-4 rout on 'Camp Day' at Joe Bruno Stadium.
The first pitch was thrown at 11:00am allowing summer campers to attend the game.
What the 3,772 fans in attendance witnessed was the ValleyCats' worst defeat since a 16-0 loss to State College on August 12, 2007.
"The tough (losses) are 3-2, 2-1, or 1-nothing games," said T-C manager Ed Romero. "We just have to basically come back and forget about it."
The loss snapped the ValleyCats' winning streak at four. They will open a six-game road trip Wednesday night in Jamestown.
