Goodbye. Farewell. Amen.
The Camden Riversharks closed out the 2011 season with a 10-0 shutout victory over the Somerset Patriots tonight at Campbell's Field. Newly acquired pitcher Zac Cline earned his first win as a Shark throwing six innings of 2 hit ball, while striking out three.
Shortstop Jake Eigsti went 2 for 4 with a home run and three RBI. Eigsti also made a spectacular stop in the 4th on a hard hit ball from Pats third baseman Jeff Nettles.
Camden began the scoring in the third inning when Noah Hall singled in Lloyd Turner to make it 1-0. In the fourth, the Sharks plated three more runs when Eigsti singled in Danny Richar, Toby Hall singled in Eigsti, and Turner's sac fly scored Jonel Pacheco to make it 4-0.
But the Sharks really broke it open in the seventh. Pats reliever Ron Villone was tagged for three runs, first an Alvin Colina single to left that scored Ruddy Yan and Turner, and next Brian Burgamy's single to right that scored Colina and made it 7-0.
The Riversharks weren't done. After a pitching change for Somerset, Danny Richar's ground out to first scored Colina. Then Jake Eigsti launched a 2 run home run over the left field wall to make it 10-0.
Relievers Joe D'Allesandro and Mike McGuire combined for 3 scoreless innings innings in relief of Cline.
