Sharks Drop Series Finale In Somerset

The Riversharks dropped the final game of the weekend series in Bridgewater, 9-1, on Sunday. Somerset tallied six runs in the bottom of the sixth, proving too much for Camden to overcome.

Somerset struck first in the bottom half of the first inning, as Fernando Cortez singled, stole second, advanced to third on a flyout, and scored on an RBI-single by Josh Pressley.

Camden answered in the second, as Alvin Colina picked up his first homer as a Rivershark, taking a Derrick Gordon offering deep to left field.

The game remained tied at one until the fifth, when Joe Holden scored on a Michael Hernandez sacrifice fly to give the Patriots a one-run advantage.

The sixth inning proved to be the difference in the game, as an RBI-triple by Justin Huber turned into two runs when he scored on a throwing error. After a walk to Matt Hagen and back-to-back singles by Yusuf Carter and Elliot Ayala, Joe Holden hit a grand slam down the left field line for his first long ball of the year, giving the Patriots an eight-run lead.

Derrick Gordon remained perfect on the season for the Patriots, as he moved to 6-0 with the victory. Josh Towers moved to 3-5 with the loss.
