Bridgewater, NJ - The Bridgeport Bluefish (12-8) suffered a sweep to the Somerset Patriots (12-8) as the road squad lost by a score of 4-2 on Thursday at TD Bank Ballpark.

The Bluefish jumped out to the lead in the first with two outs. Prentice Redman started the rally with a double to left and scored on a line drive base hit by Luis Lopez to leftcenter.

With Bridgeport ahead by a run, Somerset responded in the bottom of the second to tie the contest. Jeff Nettles drove a two-out solo drive to left.

In the third, the Patriots took the lead courtesy of a two-out solo blast by Jonny Tucker to left.

Somerset continued to add runs. In the fourth and fifth frames, the Patriots pushed across a run. With runners at the corners in the fourth, Tucker singled to leftcenter to allow the thid runner to cross the plate. In the next frame, with a runner in scoring position, Nettles ripped a double to left to increase the advantage to three.

The Bluefish scored a run on a passed ball with Joey Gathright at third; but the road squad was unable tomake a comeback.
