The Bridgeport Bluefish came into town to play the Somerset Patriots to start the Patriots final regular season home stand of the 2013 campaign.
Alexis Gomez hit his 10th bomb of the season off Patriots starter Erik Arnesen to open up the scoring for the Bluefish.
Arnesen picked up the loss, surrendering five runs through seven innings while striking out six. His record moved to 13-4. Judging by the numbers it was clearly a rare poor performance for him.
The Patriots Jorge Cortes did pick up two runs thanks to a two run RBI single. Yunesky Sanchez did make an effort at a comeback as he doubled home one run in the bottom of the seventh.
The Patriots late inning efforts were too short as they fell 5-3.
