SHARKS WIN IN EXTRAS, MY RALLY CAP WILL NOT BE DENIED!
For the second straight night, the Riversharks earned a thrilling walkoff victory, this time defeating the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs in 14 innings, 4-3.
I'm too tired to write this game summary (did I mention the 14 innings?). So I'll summarize...the summary: The pitching held up, especially the bullpen. The new kid, Joe D' Allesandro gets the win, mainly cause he was one of the last men standing in the bullpen. I'm not kidding. In the 14th, Mumba Rivera and Shea Harris WERE the last two guys in the pen. Guess who started to warm up, just in case he was needed in the 15th?
Shea. Motherfucking. Harris. Poor Mumba.
The offensive heroes: There was Danny "The Rocket" Richar, who went 3 for 6 and scored the tying run in the bottom of the 14th. The winning run came off the bat of the #9 hitter Juan Francia, who's 2 run game winning single generally sent me, Adam, and the other 12 people who stayed till the end into hysterics.
The Riversharks have now won SEVEN STRAIGHT GAMES. They're in sole possesion of the best record in the Atlantic League. Granted the 2nd half has just begun, but still...this is unreal, considering how poorly the 2011 season started for these guys.
