Bluefish Bats Sizzling In Series Win

Four-Hit Game For Nina, Callaspo And Abreu Go Yard

 

(New Britain, CT– May 18, 2017) – The Bridgeport Bluefish (16-12) defeated the New Britain Bees (9-18) 10-8 at New Britain Stadium on Thursday night to win three of four games in the series between the Liberty Division and in-state rivals. Bridgeport concludes their eight-game road trip with a record of 6-2, and now have 12 wins away from the Ballpark at Harbor Yard this season, the most overall in the Atlantic League of Professional Baseball.

Bridgeport Starting Pitcher Charles Brewer (3-0) collected the win, allowing six runs (five earned runs) on six hits in five and one-third innings pitched, striking out three. New Britain Starting Pitcher Kyle Simon (2-2) suffered the loss, giving up eight runs on 12 hits in four innings on the mound, striking out two and surrendering a pair of home runs. Bluefish closer David Carpenter tossed a scoreless ninth inning out of the bullpen, striking out one to notch his Atlantic League leading 11th save in 12 opportunities.

Leading 4-3 in the top half of the fourth inning, Bridgeport sent eight batters to the plate against Simon, scoring four runs on four hits to take a comfortable 8-3 advantage. Following a run scoring single by Angelys Nina that plated D’Arby Myers after he was hit by a pitch to begin the rally, Alberto Callaspo stepped into the batter’s box and launched his fourth home run of the season, a three-run bomb to right field, tying him with Jonathan Galvez for the team lead in roundtrippers. The big fly was the second in as many innings for the visitors, with Tony Abreu blasting his first home run in a ‘Fish uniform, a two-run shot to right centerfield in the top of the third inning. Luis Hernandez added to the scoring with a pair of RBI doubles in the seventh and ninth innings as every single batter in the Bridgeport lineup registered at least one hit, with the Bluefish totaling a single-game season-high 19 hits overall, surpassing the previous total of 17 hits collected on April 22nd in a 13-10 loss to the Sugar Land Skeeters at Constellation Field. Five players had multi-hits games for the ‘Fish, with Nina leading the way tallying four on the night, the second time in as many games a Bluefish player had a four-hit performance after Jose Gil did the same in last night’s 10-6 victory over New Britain.
