WALDORF, MD.—The Southern Maryland Blue Crabs defeated the Sugar Land Skeeters by the final of 4-3 to take two of three from Sugar Land.
RHP Tim Sexton came into his start today having not won in more than two months, and registered the quality start, and his third victory of the season.
The offense came through early in clutch situations. Gustavo Molina opened the scoring with a solo homerun in the bottom of the second. Michael Snyder stepped to the dish and launched a solo homerun over the wall in left. A few batters later, Eric Garcia stepped to the plate and pulled a single to right to score two runs to make it 4-0.
Sugar Land pushed their first run across in the top of the fifth when Josh Prince doubled in Wilfredo Rodriguez. The Skeeters inched closer in the sixth when Jeremy Barfield smashed a two run bomb to left to cut the Blue Crabs lead to 4-3.
The rest of the way, the bullpen combination of Snodgress, Stem, and Eppley halted the rally for Sugar Land striking out three and allowing just one baserunner. The Bullpen staff has now allowed just one earned run in their last seven games.
Somerset will be visiting Regency Furniture Stadium for a four game series beginning tomorrow night at Regency Furniture Stadium. The first pitch is set for 7:05 P.M.
