SUGAR LAND, Texas - The Sugar Land Skeeters (11-11, 41-51) stormed back for three unanswered runs over the final two innings to shock the Somerset Patriots (11-11, 53-38) Sunday with a a 4-3 walk-off win at Constellation Field.

The Skeeters took a 1-0 lead in the first inning without recording a hit. A pair of walks, a runner-advancing groundout and a sacrifice fly from Kevin Ahrens provided Sugar Land with the early lead. Somerset later tied up the ballgame in the fifth on an Alfredo Rodriguez sacrifice fly.

Kyle Roller gave the Patriots their first lead of the series in the eighth inning with a two-run sacrifice fly. Cole Gillespie made an impressive diving catch in right-center field to rob Roller of a base-hit, but with runners at second and third at the time, both were able to advance home when Gillespie was slow to get up after the catch.

However, the two-run lead was short-lived. Sugar Land leveled the game in the bottom of the eighth on an RBI single from Ahrens and a pair of errors leading to a run. 

The Skeeters then won the ballgame in the ninth on a walk-off RBI single from Anthony Giansanti: his first hit of the game.

Felipe Paulino (3-1) earned the win after he tossed a scoreless inning of relief. Ronnie Shaban (3-3) allowed one run over two-thirds of an inning to take the loss.
