Patriots Scoreboard: Patriots 10 at Bears 13

Thanks to last night’s 16 inning marathon, Newark Bears pitcher Brent Billingsley knew he’d be going deep into the game, regardless of the results. And that was certainly the case today, with Billingsley throwing 147 pitches over nine innings in a 13-10 Bears victory. All ten runs were earned, so although his record evens out to 5-5, his ERA will take a hit.

Wil Quintana hit a three run home run for Newark, and Jose Herrera had 4 RBI, including a two run home run. That was both players 12th longball of the year. Jerson Perez hit a solo shot in the win.

Somerset hit four home runs in the loss with Ray Navarrete, Patrick Boran, Chris Eickhorst and Tony Gsell all going deep. Joe Gannon went six innings for Somerset, also allowing 10 runs, with eight of them being earned.

AL Scoreboard: Ducks 6 at Surf 1

The Long Island Ducks will be bringing some momentum into Somerset after beating the Surf 6-1 today. Both Patrick Lennon and Dominick Ambrosini drove in two runs for the Ducks, with proved to be more than eough for Ducks starter Shane Arthurs. Arthurs has been pitching above expectations in Long Island, and today was no different, with the former Bluefish hurler going seven strong innings and striking out just as many batters.

Lancaster 8 at Camden 7

What happened to the Camden Riversharks is most likely what would have happened to a piece of chocolate if you left it in the stands. They melted.

Taking a 7-3 lead into the 9th inning, Lancaster pulled off a shocking comeback with five runs in the 9th to beat Camden, 8-7. Here’s how it went down, straight from Camden’s press release:

With a 7-3 lead in the top of the 9th, the Riversharks turned things over to their normally reliable closer, Wayne Gomes. The first two batters reached base on a walk to Danny Gonzalez and a single by Joe Nathans. After Travis Hake flied out for out number one, Quincy Foster hit a ground ball that might have been a game-ending double play if not for the takeout slide at second by Nathans. As a result, Gonzalez scored and Foster ended up at second with two outs. Lancaster got four straight hits, a pair of singles and doubles, to take an 8-7 lead on Lance Burkhart’s seeing eye single in the hole to right.
Gomes took the loss for Camden, allowing five earned runs in that ninth inning. The ex-Phillies reliever’s record falls to 4-5.

Bridgeport 7 at Nashua 8, F/10

Bridgeport did what Bridgeport’s been doing the entire second half…they lost. Nashua did what Nashua’s been doing the entire second half…they won.

But there was more to it than that today, as Bridgeport actually had a four run lead going into the 9th inning. But, after pulling Bluefish starter Josh Miller for Brian Warren, the Nashua bats erupted. Mike Torres hit a solo home run, as did Darren Bragg. This made the score 7-5. Then, Brian Becker singled in a run and Joe Kilburg doubled one in as well, tying the game at seven.

Orlando Miller stuck the dagger in the Bluefish, or I guess the hook in this case, with a two-out walk-off single that scored Torres. – Mike Ashmore
