Sharks Hang On Despite Patriots Rally

The Riversharks won the first game of the second half, 7-6, on Friday night.

Camden exploded for five runs in the top of the first, as Pedro Feliz and Danny Richar hit back-to-back home runs off Somerset starter Derell McCall. Lloyd Turner also scored on one of two errors committed by the Patriots in the inning.

Somerset answered in the bottom half of the frame, as Josh Pressley doubled home Michael Hernandez.

The Sharks added two more runs in the third, as Brian Burgamy picked up an RBI-single and Danny Richar recorded a sacrifice fly.

Camden was then held scoreless the rest of the way, as the Patriots' bullpen retired eleven in a row and seven in a row on two separate occasions.

The Patriots battled back throughout the contest, as they scored two runs in the third, one in the fourth, one in the sixth, and one in the seventh.

Federico Baez picked up his fifth win of the season, and Brian Stokes picked up his seventh save
