Fox Shocks York Jocks; Or How Doetsch's Reach Sparks 'Sharks

In his first start with the Riversharks, righty Steve Fox was impressive. Impressive in that he made it six innings without going on the DL, which is apparently de rigueur with Camden's pitching staff in 2012.

Eddy Camacho, Keith Weiser and Mariano Gomez have all been shelved with injuries, which has required some serious shuffling of the deck on the part of Jeff Scott to even put together a five man rotation (Blake King and Josh Walter, usually middle relievers, have started games in the past two weeks). The Alex Smith experiment isn't working quite as planned, but if tonight's game against the York Revolution was any indication, Fox is going to do quite nicely here. He went six innings, allowing one run on three hits. He struck out three.

Meantime, Steve Doetsch had himself a game, going two for three with a homer and two RBI, as the Riversharks came from behind to beat the Revs tonight, 5-2. Hammes, Lujan and Rosales combined for three innings of scoreless relief, with Rosales picking up save number five.
