HWB: Patterson Reaches Base Twice
In his second at bat of the evening, Patterson came up with no outs and a man on second. After taking the first pitch for a strike, he lined a double to right field on the second pitch of the at bat. The runners were left stranded at second and third, however, as the rest of the Sharks lineup did not succeed in getting them in.
Patterson got his third at bat of the game when he led off the sixth inning, this time facing his second Japanese hurler in Takashi Maruyama. Patterson took the first two pitches for strikes, and subsequently struck out after swinging on an 0-2 breaking ball.
The Jays outfielder got his final at bat of the game in the eighth inning off pitcher Gilbert de la Vara, and with runners on first and second, he hit a deep fly ball in the right-center field gap, which was caught. A run, however, did score when the second baseman made a wild throw in the infield.
Patterson made a spectacular play in the field in the bottom of the eighth inning, robbing a hit from Joshua Ford.
As the Sharks were trying to get a rally going in the top ninth, they turned to Eric Nielsen to pinch hit to begin the inning. Nielsen lined a 2-2 pitch to right field for a double, and scored three batters later on a double play ball.
Nielsen in batting 4-for-10 in the league with a run scored and two runs batted in, while Patterson is batting 3-for-9 with a double.
