Skeeters bitten by Riversharks in 5-2 Loss

The Riversharks answered in the third inning with two runs of their own to make it 2-1. Sugar Land rallied in the bottom of the third to tie it up at 2-2. In the seventh inning, the Riversharks pushed across two more runs and took a 4-2 lead, before going on to win by the final score of 5-2.
