Lopez smacked the homer to left on a two-ball, no strike pitch from John Lujan (2-4) with runners on the corners and one out. The Bluefish third baseman has eight shots on the season and had two hits on the night. Eddie Rogers drove in the other run in final frame on a grounder to second. The Bluefish shortstop also picked up two hits, stole a base, and scored a run. James Simmons and Kennard Jones produced two hits for the winning team with Jones coming to the plate once. Prentice Redman reached base three times and picked up one hit while Joey Gathright and Shea Hillenbrand collected one hit a piece.
Camden scored all of the squads’ runs in the first inning. Brian Burgamy, Pedro Feliz, and Eduardo Perez drove in runs in the opening frame. Walker was the only home batter to pick up two hits on the night.
Bluefish starter, Gilbert De La Vara (8-6), earned the victory as the southpaw fired eight frames and surrendered three runs on six hits and two walks while fanning five. Juan Rincon notched his eighth save of 2012 as the righthander struck out two and walked two in the ninth.
Riversharks hurler, Eddy Camacho, did not factor in the decision as the southpaw starter delivered seven innings of one run (no earned run), seven hit, four walk and four strikeout baseball. Leo Rosales retired the Bluefish in order before Bridgeport came up with four runs on four hits and two walks against Lujan.
