A three run home run in the eighth from Toby Hall, his second of the season, was not enough to power the Riversharks past the Blue Crabs who scored seven runs off the Sharks, five on losing pitcher Eddie Camacho.
Things got off to a rough start for the ‘Sharks in the bottom of the first after Eddie Camacho loaded the bases and allowed a run before recording an out. An error by first baseman Brian Burgamy made way for an unearned run putting the Sharks at a 2-0 deficit going in to the second.
The Riversharks bats answered back with RBI singles from both Burgamy (52) and Toby Hall in the bottom of the second, but the Sharks would not score again until the seventh.
Camacho (5-4) suffered the loss allowing five runs and eight hits over 5.1 innings, and striking out three.
Schlact (6-3) allowed only two runs over six innings pitched, allowed eight hits and struck out one.
Mumba Rivera replaced Camacho in the sixth and allowed an additional run, an RBI single from Casey Benjamin, to score.
An RBI single from Lloyd Turner in the seventh started a late inning rally that continued when Toby Hall belted a three run homer in the eighth to make the score 7-6. However, the ‘Sharks could not continue their rally into the ninth and Jim Ed Warden got the save, his 22nd of the season.
