Blue Crabs Defeat Bluefish In Extra Innings

Myers Collects Three Hits In The Losing Effort

 

(Bridgeport, CT– May 19, 2017) – The Bridgeport Bluefish (16-13) were defeated the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs (13-15) 5-3 in Ten Innings at the Ballpark at Harbor Yard on Friday evening as the visitors snap a four-game losing streak to take the opener of a three-game weekend series in the Park City. Bridgeport is now winless in three extra-inning contests this season, with all three taking place on their home field and two of the three defeats coming at the hands of the Blue Crabs.

Bridgeport Starting Pitcher Tyler Badamo registered a no-decision, allowing three runs on six hits in six innings pitched, striking out two. Southern Maryland Starting Pitcher Daryl Thompson also did not factor in the game’s final outcome, surrendering three runs on six hits in five innings on the mound, walking two and striking out five. Austin Fleet (1-2) picked up the win out of the bullpen, with Cody Eppley notching his eighth save, second most in the Atlantic League.

Trailing 2-0 in the bottom of the second, the Bluefish took their first lead of the night at 3-2 on a run-scoring single by Santiago Nessy and a two-run double by D’Arby Myers against Thompson. The base knock for Nessy extends his hitting streak to a personal best eight consecutive games, the longest active streak on the ballclub. The Blue Crabs would get even at three in the top half of the sixth inning against Badamo on a two-out, RBI single by Devon Rodriguez, plating Cory Vaughn after he doubled with one man away. Rodriguez was the difference making again in the top of the tenth inning, as he gave Southern Maryland the lead at 4-3 with a chopper over the head of first baseman Jose Cuevas and into right field off Drake Britton, who was on in relief of losing pitcher Danny Burawa (1-1), scoring Zach Wilson, the fourth hit and third run batted in on the night for Rodriguez. Vaughn would add an insurance run as he hustled down the line on a wild pitch thrown by Britton to make it 5-3 in favor of the visitors, as Southern Maryland improved to 3-1 when free baseball is played, including being unbeaten in three tries away from home. Myers led the way for the Bluefish with three hits.
