Bluefish Take A Loss to Sugar Land Skeeters in Second Game of Series
BRIDGEPORT—The Bridgeport Bluefish (12-20) fell to the Sugar Land Skeeters (14-17) with a final score of 3-0 after a forty-minute rain delay at Harbor Yard Arena today.
The second game of the four-game series with the Skeeters saw Ty’relle Harris (0-4) getting the start at the mound ending with six strikeouts, allowing six hits and walking five. He struggled early on, walked in a run in the second inning, and then let in a hit from Skeeters’ Adam Godwin that made for a quick 2-0 Sugar Land lead.
The ‘Fish attempted to get things going in the bottom of the fourth with a base hit to left field that went right over the head of Skeeters’ shortstop Rusty Ryal, but Sugar Land retired the inning on a caught fly ball from Luis Rodriquez.
Solid field efforts kept the Skeeters to two runs, particularly in the top of the sixth where Sugar Land had the set up to score. A game of tag between home plate and third base prevented the extension of the Skeeters’ lead, and the inning ended with a strikeout delivered by Harris.
Both teams remained stagnant for multiple innings, not being able to capitalize on their rally attempts, until the Skeeters ended the scoreless slump after a hit from Travis Scott at the top of the seventh brought a runner home.
Despite the rainy weather, a large crowd came out to support the home team, swayed to “play hooky” from school and work and enjoy a day at the field.
The series will continue tomorrow against the Skeeters at Harbor Yard, where first pitch is scheduled for 6:05 p.m.
