Hey, At Least We Got Free Ice Cream: Revs, Cody Shutout 'Sharks 8-0

When York leadoff hitter Brandon Haveman took the second pitch he saw from 'Sharks starter Eddy Camacho deep over the right field wall, I knew it would be a long afternoon for our Camden Riversharks.

York sent eight men to the plate in the first inning, scoring three more times after Haveman's solo shot. Things never got better for Camacho or the 'Sharks, as they were blanked by a superior Revs team in an embarrassing 8-0 blowout. It was Camden's third straight loss, and drops them to 6 games behind the Liberty Division leading Southern Maryland Bluecrabs.

Camacho went six innings, giving up six runs on twelve hits. He struck out six.

Camden could only manage four hits all afternoon against Revs pitching, and only one of those, a Pedro Feliz leadoff double in the seventh, went for extra bases. York starter Chris Cody cruised through the 'Sharks lineup, at one point retiring sixteen batters in a row.

In relief of Camacho, and holding true to form, Spencer Steedley managed to give up two more runs on four hits in just an inning of work. In an ironic twist, the much beleaguered Josh Walter and Zach Hammes combined to work back to back 1-2-3 innings in what might've been Camden's only bright spot for this game.
