Bryan Corey pitched a gem to lead the Camden Riversharks over the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs, 3-2, in the rubber match of a three game set Sunday afternoon at Regency Furniture Stadium.
Corey (2-3) rebounded from his 5-run outing against Lancaster last Tuesday to throw seven innings of two-run ball, giving up four hits while striking out five against the Blue Crabs (11-12).
The Riversharks (10-13) provided all the run support in the fourth inning. Brian Burgamy and Jake Eigsti hit back-to-back sacrifice flies and Eduardo Perez followed up with an RBI double to put the Sharks up 3-0.
That was all the offense Camden would need. Corey cruised through the first 5.2 innings. Then he hit his only rough patch when he walked David Espinosa then served up a home run to Javier Colina. It was the second day in a row Colina hit a long ball.
That was all the Blue Crabs would get. Jason Bergmann, who leads the Sharks in ERA, pitched another scoreless inning in the eighth. Christian Lopez hit a ninth inning double to put the tying run in scoring position with one out, but John Lujan got a ground out and strike out to end the game and pick up his third save of the season.
