It looked like the Sharks were going to extend their losing streak to five games but the Ducks gave them an inch and the Sharks took a mile. After falling behind 1-0 in the second then tying the score in the third and falling behind again in the fourth, the Ducks gave the Riversharks their chance when Tony Rodriguez picked up a ground ball and threw it into right field. This was the inch that allowed the Sharks their mile. Quincy Foster who was on second base trotted home for the tie. Camden’s Troy Cameron smacked a fastball out of the park scoring two runs to put the game away.

Nearly 4,000 fans showed up on a gorgeous Sunday afternoon to enjoy baseball bobble heads and ice cream as the Sharks gave away Wayne Krenchicki (the manager) dolls and had their usual “Sunday Sundaes”. Todd Rizzo picked up the victory for Camden and Joe Strong earned the save.

The Sharks will be off on Monday and will return for a three game home stand against the North division leading Bridgeport Bluefish.
