Eigsti's First HR Spoiled In Loss

Much like last night, the Riversharks jumped to an early lead. This time, it was behind the bat of Alvin Colina. The game led-off with a Jonel Pacheco walk, a Lloyd Turner single and the finishing touches were put on by Colina’s two-out single.

The scoring halted for both teams until an offensive explosion by the Revs in the 6th. Chris Nowak singled, Jose Herrera walked, and then a single by Bryant Nelson tied the game at one. That was short-lived after Vince Harrison blasted his ninth homerun of the season over the centerfield wall to extend the lead to 4-1.

The ‘Sharks answered back with a run of their own; again, off the bat of Alvin Colina. This time it was a solo shot to left field.

The bats went silent until the top of the ninth when Scott Grimes led the inning off with a stand-up triple. Some miscommunication between Brian Burgamy and Jake Eigsti led to a bloop-single by Chris Walker. A bang-bang play at the plate saw Grimes beat the throw home.

In the bottom of the ninth down 5-3 and on their last strike, the newly-acquired Eigsti delivered on his first hit as a ‘Shark. A no-doubter over the left-center field wall pushed the ‘Sharks to within one. However, it wasn’t enough and the ‘Sharks dropped the series finale against the Revs.
