Justin Kamplain pitching for the Staten Island Yankees in 2014 (Robert M Pimpsner)

Greenville Drives Past RiverDogs, 2-1

The Charleston RiverDogs dropped the first game of their final home stand of the season 2-1 against the Greenville Drive on Tuesday night.

There was not a ton of offense and errors by the RiverDogs cost them the first game of the set. Justin Kamplain started the game on the mound for Charleston and pitched four and two thirds innings of one run ball allowing three hits and two walks while striking out six. The lone run against Kamplain came in the top of the third when Tzu-Wei Lin stroked a two out RBI triple to right field.

The RiverDogs would tie it up in the fifth inning, Cluadio Custodio would drive a one out double and advance to third on a wild pitch. After an Eduardo de Oleo walk, designated hitter for the evening Brandon Thomas would lift a sacrifice fly to center field to score Custodio and tie the game 1-1.

The Custodio double was the first hit of the game for the RiverDogs and they would not threaten again until the eighth inning. With second baseman Gosuke Katoh on first after a walk, left fielder Michael O’Neill would double on a line drive to right field. Katoh was held up at third and Miguel Andujar would strand the runners with a ground out.

With Stefan Lopez on the mound for the Dogs in the top of the ninth inning a dropped foul ball error would come back to haunt them as the runner would walk and come around to score after a sac bunt moved him to second and a passed ball would score him all the way from second base to give the Drive a 2-1 lead.

With one out in the bottom of the ninth Yeicok Calderon would walk but he would immediately be erased on a Custodio double play ball to end the game. The RiverDogs had two hits on the evening but were walked six times by Drive pitching.

The RiverDogs (66-68) play their penultimate game at The Joe this season when they get together again with the Drive Wednesday night sending Gabe Encinas to the mound to try and stop their two game losing streak.
