Bridgeport, CT - The Bridgeport Bluefish (17-16) picked up a season high 19 hits as the home team defeated the York Revolution (13-18) at The Ballpark at Harbor Yard on Tuesday by a score of 15-9.

The Bluefish scored four runs in the second and nine more in the third to open up the game.

The second was highlighted by a two run shot to left from Eddie Rogers. The shortstop went 3-for-5 on the night with his fourth homer of the year while driving in three. Brock Peterson scored twice in the third frame which included a grand slam to left in that inning. The Bluefish first baseman scored three runs on the night. University of Bridgeport alum, Peter Barrows, collected his first four-hit night of his career. Luis Lopez reached base four times which included adding two more walks to his Atlantic League leading total.

Every Bluefish batter had a multiple hit night except for Prentice Redman and Elliott Ayala. Redman extended his on base streak to 30 consecutive contests with a single to left in the fifth while Ayala drove in four runs for Bridgeport

York’s Chris Nowak reached base five times and picked up a two-run homer for the road team while Michael Hernandez drove in three runs for the Revolution.

Paul Oseguera (3-2) was strong in his start for the Bluefish. He worked six innings and allowed three runs on seven hits and two walks while fanning six to pick up the victory. Four relievers combined to throw the final three frames for the winning side. Bridgeport surrendered six runs, eight hits and two walks while striking out four.

Revolution starter, Ryan Feierabend (3-2), suffered the loss as the southpaw completed two-and-a-third innings and allowed eleven runs (five earned) on eleven hits and fanned two. The rest of the bullpen tossed five-and-two-thirds innings and gave up four runs, eight hits and three walks. York’s bullpen also struck out four batters
