'Sharks Win 4-3, Lujan Earns His 13th Save
The Blue Crabs (28-35) jumped out in front early. Matt Padgett led off the second with a walk and came around to score on a Brian Barton double. The Riversharks (30-32) countered with two in the home half of the inning thanks to four singles to help Raul Padron and Alvin Colina score.
Bryan Corey was back to his old form in his start Sunday. Corey (5-5) went 6+ innings, allowing two earned runs on seven hits to pick up the win. The Crabs were able to tie it in the fourth though. Brian Barton singled and stole second before Jeremy Owens served a single into left field. Eduardo Perez bobbled the ball, allowing Barton to score an unearned run.
Camden got back in front when Jake Eigsti led off the fifth inning with a deep home run through the wind to left field. Southern Maryland countered with a solo blast of their own from Casey Benjamin. It was the 13 home run allowed by Corey on the season.
The Riversharks took the lead for good when Perez led off the home half of the sixth with a double and scored on a Paddy Matera single. Josh Walter, Zach Hammes and John Lujan each pitched a scoreless inning in relief to secure the victory. Lujan let runners at the corners with two down in the ninth but was able to strike out Mike Daniel to end the game and pick up save number 13 on the season.
