The Revolution extended the lead with two runs in the top of the sixth inning on an RBI double by Telvin Nash and an RBI single by Mitchell.

Somerset cut the lead in half in the bottom of the frame on a two-run double by Justin Pacchioli.

“I was just looking for a good pitch I can hit. I knew that I was going to get something that I could drive in that at bat and I was just trying not to miss it,” said Pacchioli.

Nash struck again for the Revolution with a sacrifice fly in the top of the eighth inning the 5-2 final.

Jay Gause (8-1) picked up the win, allowing two earned runs on three hits and six strikeouts in 5.2 innings pitched. David Kubiak (5-9) suffered the loss, allowing four runs (three earned) on seven hits and seven strikeouts in six innings pitched. Brad Allen earned his 17th save with a scoreless ninth inning.

“Overall we had some opportunities tonight. We made a few mistakes, myself included, that if we clean up, we are right in the game,” added Pacchioli.

The 2017 Somerset Patriots Season will continue on the road until Tuesday, Aug. 15th when the team returns home to take on the Long Island Ducks at 7:05 pm. For tickets, visit www.somersetpatriots.com.
