York, PA - The Bridgeport Bluefish defeated the York Revolution 4-0 in the series opener on Tuesday evening at Santander Stadium.

The ‘Fish were backed by a complete game shut-out by starting pitcher Tomo Ohka (2-0), who held York to just three hits on the night while striking out five batters. This was the first time that a Bridgeport starting pitcher lasted past the sixth inning in the early weeks of the season.

Bridgeport’s offense was limited to just five hits through the first seven innings of the evening before scoring two runs in each the eighth and the ninth inning. With two outs in the eighth inning, second baseman Mike Richard worked a walk and advanced to second on shortstop Juan Martinez’s single. Richard stole third and both him and Martinez scored on Luis Lopez’s single, giving Ohka and the Bluefish a 2-0 lead. Then in the top of the ninth, designated hitter Prentice Redman led off the inning with a single before catcher J.R. Towles hit a two-run home run to give Bridgeport some insurance runs. Michael Wuertz (0-1) picked up the loss for York in relief, giving up two runs in an inning after Revolution starter Anthony Lerew pitched six scoreless innings and struck out seven batters.

Bridgeport continue their three game series against York on Wednesday night with first pitch at 6:30pm.The Bluefish will return home to face Long Island on Tuesday May 13th at 7:05pm.
