Reese Shuts It Down, Smith Lights It Up

Drew Macias' 9th inning, bases loaded sacrifice fly to right field scored Marquez Smith, and the Camden Riversharks beat the Long Island Ducks 1-0 tonight, behind a quality start from righty Kevin Reese.

Reese threw six innings of shutout baseball, allowing just four hits, while striking out three. The bullpen combo of Zach Hammes, Jason Bergmann, and John Lujan continued blanking the Ducks, allowing just one hit in three innings of relief. 

Long Island threatened to score in the top of the 8th, after a throwing error by catcher Scott Knazek allowed Craig Binick to take third base with one out. But Bergmann got Brandon Sing to hit a grounder right to Marquez Smith, who alertly fired the ball to Knazek for out number two. Ray Navarrete ended the Ducks threat by flying out to right field for the third out. 

Smith had a great night at the dish as well, going 2 for 3 with two doubles as well as scoring the winning run.
