Riversharks Shutout by Barnstormers

Iggy Suarez was 4-for-4 and Matt Wright pitched into the seventh inning as the Lancaster Barnstormers knocked off the Camden Riversharks by the final score of 6-0. The Riversharks have now been shut out three times this season.

Wright (2-5) pitched 6.2 scoreless innings allowing just two hits while striking out five batters for his first win since June 3rd.

Aaron Herr gave Lancaster the lead in the top the 2nd when he connected with his 5th home run of the season, a solo shot, to give the Barnstormers a 1-0 lead.

Federico Baez (4-2), making his first start since coming back from injury, went the first three innings allowing one run while striking out four batters.

Lancaster doubled their lead in the top of the 5th on Iggy Suarez’s RBI single to make it 2-0. Suarez is now 7-for-8 in the first two games of this series.

The Barnstormers added insurance runs in the 8th inning when Ozzie Chavez and Gilberto Mejia drew back-to-back bases-loaded walks to make it 4-0. Suarez then followed with a two-out, two-run single to extend the Lancaster lead to 6-0.
