BRIDGEWATER, NJ-   The Somerset Patriots (17-10) shut out the Sugar Land Skeeters (14-11) 2-0 behind six scoreless innings by David Kubiak (2-2) on Tuesday evening at TD Bank Ballpark.

Kubiak tied a team season high nine strikeouts and scattered just two hits over his six innings of work.

“I was throwing strikes. I threw a lot of changeups, which were working good,” said Kubiak. “Keeping them off-balance is pretty big for me and getting ahead of guys. I don’t think I got behind many guys so I was very happy with tonight.”

Jake Hale (3-1) took the loss, giving up two runs (one earned) on seven hits in a complete game effort.
