Scoreboard: What did the Pride have more of Thursday night, runs or errors? Trick question, they had five of each. With the errors come losses, and tonight was no different as Nashua lost to Somerset, 13-5. With the loss, the Patriots swept the Pride and will go 7-3 on their 10 game road trip, including winning their last four. Their record improves to 20-14, with Scott Sobkowiak improving his record to 3-1 with the win. Billy Hall had four hits for Somerset.

On the flip side, Nashua allowed 31 runs and had nine errors during the three game series.

With the way the fans have been coming out to the ballpark, the question might soon be whether the Pride have more errors than fans…seriously, head on over to Holman people.

Newark beat Bridgeport, 7-2. Tom McGee (2) homered, his second in two days. It was a short night for Bears INF Jack Santora, who was ejected in the 1st for arguing a play at the plate.

Camden beat Lancaster, 8-7. Chris Wakeland, L.J. Biernbaum and Vic Gutierrez homered for Camden.

Long Island beat Atlantic City, 9-5. Patrick Lennon was 3-4 with 3 RBI.

Player signing: The Nationals signed Barnstormers star Juan Melo to a contract. He will report to Triple-A New Orleans.

Riversharks signings: INF Troy Cameron, INF Jason Aquilino, OF Brian L. Hunter. Cameron was on the team last year, Aquilino was in the Phillies system. But Hunter is the signing I’m excited about. He’s played for the Astros, Tigers, Reds, Rockies, Mariners and Phillies. Big league time, me likey.

Barnstormers signing: They signed INF Kevin Wilson to take the place of Melo. Wilson played for the Riversharks for part of last season.

Bears signing: The Newark Bears announced the signing of former big league pitcher Jeff Farnsworth to a contract. The brother of current Cubs pitcher Kyle Farnsworth, Jeff spent most of the 2002 season with the Detroit Tigers.

Awards: Long Island Ducks pitcher Paxton Crawford and Bridgeport outfielder Jamie Gann were named pitcher/player of the month for May.

Yesterday’s Scoreboard: Newark beat Bridgeport, 6-5. Camden beat Lancaster, 8-5. Atlantic City beat the Ducks, 7-3. And Somerset beat the Pride, 6-4.

Ducks Innovations…sort of – It appears as though the Ducks are working on a new feature on their website that includes short video clips in their player profiles. I noticed this during my preparations for their trip into Somerset tomorrow, specifically on the profile of Tony Runion. I (MA) like the idea, I’d just like to see it executed differently. Rather than a quick intro clip, perhaps a quick highlight reel sort of video, which could help in the scouting department and perhaps further the chances of one of their players being picked up. Scouts will go to any lengths if they see even a quick snippet of something they like, and I feel like the Ducks could be a real innovator if they were to try out something like that. And besides, the fans would love it. – Mike Ashmore and Scott Stanchak.
