Starting Pitching Matchup
Righty Lucas Irvine (0-0, 0.00 ERA) toes the rubber for Somerset while fellow righty hurler Parker Frazier (0-0, 0.00 ERA) will toss for Bridgeport. Irvine played in one game for Camden in 2013 and missed all of last year due to an injury. Frazier has peaked at the AAA level with the White Sox and Rockies organizations.
The Patriots are looking for their sixth title franchise history (2001, 2003, 2005, 2008, 2009). Somerset has made the postseason 11 times in their 17 years. Meanwhile the Bluefish have not qualified for the playoffs since 2010.
The Somerset bullpen has been outstanding as they have logged 8.2 innings of scoreless baseball
