Bug Bombed

The Sugar Land Skeeters scored twelve unanswered runs in the final four innings to take game three, 13-5, over the Camden Riversharks Saturday night at Campbell’s Field. 

The Sharks (24-25) jumped out to an early 5-1 lead. Camden struck for two in the first inning with RBI singles from Eduardo Perez and Raul Padron. The Skeeters (20-28) got a run back in the second but in the bottom of the inning Camden added three more on sacrifice flies from Perez and Lloyd Turner plus a single from Alvin Colina. 

That was all the scoring for the Sharks as Bobby Livingston (5-2) settled down and didn’t allow a run over the next four innings, going six while allowing the five runs on nine hits. 

He got the win thanks to the strong comeback by the Skeeters. In the sixth, Sean Jarrett retired the first two men of the inning but back-to-back doubles led to two runs scoring. A three run seventh gave the Skeeters the lead. The inning featured two throwing errors by Perez and a two-run home run from Dominic Ramos off of Mariano Gomez (1-1) to put the Skeeters up for good. They added two in the eighth and four in the ninth for good measure.
