Timely Hitting Lifts 'Fish Over Skeeters

Another Quality Start For Brewer, Galvez Goes Yard

                                                                                                                             

(Bridgeport, CT– August 11, 2017) – The Bridgeport Bluefish (18-17, 59-46) defeated the Sugar Land Skeeters (15-18, 45-58) 4-1 at the Ballpark at Harbor Yard on Friday evening to even up the four-game series at a victory apiece. The Bluefish improve to 7-5 versus the reigning Atlantic League of Professional Baseball Champions on the 2017 campaign, and remain a game and a half behind the Long Island Ducks for first place in the second half of the Liberty Division Standings.

Bridgeport starting pitcher Charles Brewer (8-5) picked up the win, allowing just one run on five hits (one home run) in six innings of work, walking two and striking out four. The right-hander notched his eighth quality start in 20 appearances on the mound and is now tied with 2017 Liberty Division All-Star Rainy Lara for the team lead in victories, while the ‘Fish improve to 14-6 when Brewer tows the rubber. Sugar Land starting pitcher Bobby Blevins (4-7) suffered the loss, giving up two runs on six hits across five and two-thirds innings pitched, walking and striking out four. Manny Delcarmen shut the door in the top half of the ninth inning to notch his second save overall.

Bridgeport took an immediate 1-0 lead against Blevins in the bottom half of the first inning on a two-out run-scoring base knock off the bat of Jonathan Galvez that plated Jose Gil after he doubled into the gap in right centerfield earlier in the frame. Sugar Land tied the game at one in the top of the third on a solo home run to left centerfield off Brewer by former Bluefish and 2017 Freedom Division All-Star Anthony Giansanti with two men away. The boys from the Park City went back on top 2-1 in the home half of the sixth on yet another clutch two-out RBI hit this time produced by Angelys Nina that enabled Gil to score after he singled with one away, giving the Bridgeport backstop his 22nd multi-hit game of the season. The ‘Fish added a pair of much needed insurance runs in the bottom of the eighth when Galvez blasted a two-run home run to left field, the slugger’s team-best 14th big fly in 2017. Galvez now has 61 runs batted in, most on the ballclub and also tallied his 22nd multi-hit game and with the three runs driven home his 12th multi-RBI game, tying him with Daniel Fields for the top honors on the team. The bullpen trio of Frank DeJiulio, Jr., Vinnie Pestano, and Delcarmen did the rest, firing three scoreless innings of relief, striking out three. Galvez, Gil, and 2017 Liberty Division All-Star Luis Hernandez each had a pair of hits in the winning effort. Photo provided courtesy of Kenneth Arrington.
